    Up to five players could make their All Blacks test debuts against Argentina this weekend

    Up to five players could make their All Blacks test debuts against Argentina this weekend


    Sevu Reece will earn his first cap starting on the right wing with Jordie Barrett on the left and Ben Smith at fullback so no Rieko Ioane this week.

    Up front Ofa Tuungafasi starts at loosehead and Vaea Fifita gets a first crack in the six jersey.

    On the bench, Atu Moli is slated for his first test having played 20 non test minutes in 2017, joining other potential first timers Luke Jacobson, Josh Ioane and Braydon Ennor while Brad Weber's in line for this second cap, over four years after his first.


    All Whites midfielder Sarpreet Singh has debuted for Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in a 2-1 loss against Arsenal at a pre season tournament in Los Angeles.

    The 20 year old came off the bench for the second half.

    A year ago Singh was playing for the Wellington Phoenix in a friendly against Wairarapa United.

    The unbeaten Silver Ferns will finally find out how well they are progressing when they face champions Australia at the netball World Cup in Liverpool tonight.
