Ian Foster has included six uncapped players in his 36-man squad for New Zealand’s three-Test series against Ireland in July.
Prop Aidan Ross, back-rower Pita Gus Sowakula, scrum-half Folau Fakatava, fly-half Stephen Perofeta, centre Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and wing Leicester Fainga’anuku are the half-dozen new faces included in the squad.
Sam Cane has been named All Blacks captain for the series, which features Tests in Auckland, Dunedin and Wellington. However, there is no room for experienced half-backs TJ Perenara and Brad Weber or Crusaders wing George Bridge.
Joe Moody, Anton Lienert-Brown and Ethan Blackadder have also been ruled out by injury while Damian McKenzie and Patrick Tuipulotu are currently considered ineligible for selection after stints in Japan.
