Naholo named in All Blacks squad

August 6, 2018 5:00 pm

Fiji Born Winger Waisake Naholo alongside Highlanders team mates Aaron and Ben Smith have been named in the All Blacks squad for the upcoming Rugby Championship.

RadioNZ reports, Crusaders fly-half Richie Mouaga has also made the cut after impressing at the Super Rugby final alongside team mates Ryan Crotty and Jack Goodhue.

Two notable names that have missed selection are Hurricanes Nani Lumape and Vaea Fifita.

All Blacks coach Steven Hasen says players like Laumape and Fifita will have their opportunities at the team if any injury arises.

He also adds that it was difficult to name the 33 member squad as there is a deep pool of players in the country.

Hansen’s also says the competition of places within the team should bring out the best in the players.

All Blacks will take on Australia next Saturday at 11.05pm.

Fijian-born Waisake Naholo has been named in the starting lineup for the All Blacks in their third and final test against France in Dunedin this weekend.

Naholo has been named in the right wing position.

There are six starting changes and a positional switch from the team who failed to impress in a 26-13 second Test win in Wellington.
