    A halfback long on the All Blacks selection shortlist has cracked the squad

    A halfback long on the All Blacks selection shortlist has cracked the squad


    Finlay Christie is one of four maiden picks in the 36-man group for tests against Tonga and Fiji.

    He joins prop Ethan de Groot, loosie Ethan Blackadder and midfielder Quinn Tupaea.

    Coach Ian Foster says Christie's work for the Blues impressed in Super Rugby.



    Prop George Bower was part of the side last year, but never gained a cap.

    David Havili, Angus Ta'avao, Luke Jacobson and Braydon Ennor all return after absences.

    Beauden Barrett and Brodie Retallick are back after stints in Japan.
