The All Blacks are racking up the numbers as they focus on tackling Samoa in a one off Test in Apia next week. With 17 All Blacks from the Highlanders and Hurricanes involved in Saturday night's Super Rugby final, coach Steven Hansen and his selectors have called in backline reinforcements Charlie Ngatai, Tom Taylor and Seta Tamanivalu. This takes the amount of players selected in the All Blacks training squad to 49. Hansen is more than comfortable introducing extra players to the All Black family. "It's a special occasion they're excited and they bring enthusiasm to the group as any new player would I think they're thankful for the opportunity and I'm sure they'll make the most of it which will put pressure on other people that aren't here," said Hansen.

"Some of them will even get a Test start”. Hansen has ruled out risking veteran winger Cory Jane who will miss the Super Rugby final due to his ongoing hamstring niggle. He'll instead be left to play club rugby. The starting side to face Samoa will be named on Monday morning.
