    Dalton Papalii will be the latest player to audition in the All Blacks' number six jersey after being given a start in the second test against Ireland in Dunedin


    The Blues captain is the only personnel change to the run-on side, with Scott Barrett moving into lock with Sam Whitelock out with concussion.

    Coach Ian Foster says it was a relatively easy side to pick and Papalii will bring something different to the role.



    Bay of Plenty prop Aidan Ross and Hawke's Bay halfback Folau Fakatava have been named for debuts off the bench, while Will Jordan returns from covid via the reserves.
