    That's the voice of Akira Ioane, poised for his test debut in Saturday's final Bledisloe Cup test against the Wallabies in Brisbane

    That's the voice of Akira Ioane, poised for his test debut in Saturday's final Bledisloe Cup test against the Wallabies in Brisbane


    The Blues loose forward will start at blindside in place of Shannon Frizell, three years after he played a tour game against a French selection.

    Ioane appeared at one time to be a player who might not fulfil his potential, but current coach Ian Foster says Ioane has turned things around.



    The All Blacks have made a host of other changes, with just five players sticking in the same spot last week.

    Wallabies coach Dave Rennie says he believes his side can bounce back from the record defeat.



    Rennie's biggest change is putting Reece Hodge in at first five.
