All Blacks name team that would put the fear of God into anyone

As expected, the All Blacks are going all-out with their team for the decisive third test against the Lions.

With the series tied at one apiece, the winner of Saturday's clash between the British and Irish Lions and New Zealand will take home all the marbles.


The match day squad sees 20-year-old Jordie Barrett receive his first Test start. The youngster comes in at fullback with Israel Dagg moving to the right wing and Julian Savea returning on the left wing. Ngani Laumape takes the number 12 jersey while recent call-up Malakai Fekitoa has been brought into the squad as cover.

It will be a landmark occasion for Kieran Read, who will play his 100th Test match and his 25th as captain, Aaron Cruden and Charlie Faumuina are expected to receive their 50th caps from the bench.
