All Blacks Call in Rookie Lock

Taranaki and Chiefs lock Josh Lord has been called into the All Blacks squad for the Northern Tour to the USA and Europe.

20-year-old Lord, together with All Blacks Sam Cane, Samuel Whitelock, Dane Coles and Shannon Frizell, will meet up with the squad in the Northern Hemisphere.  Lord comes in, with locks Scott Barrett and Patrick Tuipulotu returning to New Zealand this week for family reasons.

All Blacks Head Coach Ian Foster said: “From a physical point of view, we have come through the Fortinet Rugby Championship really well.  Therefore, we’ve decided to add fewer players than first anticipated for the next part of our 12-week Tour.  Also having the Bunnings Warehouse NPC continue into November means we are also able to bring over potential replacements, if required.”

With the All Blacks squad unable to return to New Zealand, the squad will relocate from the Gold Coast to the Sunshine Coast tomorrow.  The squad will have a week off and a training camp next week before flying out to the USA on Sunday 17 October. The All Blacks play the USA Eagles in Washington DC on Saturday 23 October before Test matches against Wales (Saturday 30 October), Italy (Saturday 6 November), Ireland (Saturday 13 November) and France (Saturday 20 November).

As a staunch AB's fan, hats off to the Boks for clinching it the way they did. It could have gone either way. This time it was theirs👏 What a spectacle!

Ethan Blackadder.......what a workhorse!!! Keep it up!!

Great test match wow wee 👍 much love 🇿🇦! deserved to win played like the true champions they are felt would of been cruel for the ABs to steal it but 2nd half was S.A dominance I'm a ABs supporter but credit is due when S A I think needed the win more 3 losses in a row plus a fourth would of been heartbreaking for S.A actually great for the game Congrates S.A one things for sure southern hemisphere rugby looking good !🙏🇳🇿🇦🇺🇿🇦❤

Shane the refs had so much influence on the game. Stop start all game.

We were at the game - the atmosphere was amazing; the Boks definitely had a game plan to slow things down, and it worked. Our discipline and a few handling errors cost us dearly. Was a real 'test' for both sides - and thats what you want - teaches mental fortitude for the big games!!! (Was great to see the fans stay back for when the teams walked around the field, and the AB fans clapped the SA team - great to see!!!) 💕

Great Test match The Springboks came to play and deserved their win it was good to see Both teams wanting to run the ball at every opportunity

Awsum test match ,well done South Africa ,well deserved 👏👍 ,hard luck Abs ! 👊👍😊Still kiwi proud hard !! 😊👍But nice u finished on a high and got the win Springboks ,Congrats ! 👍🙂🤗🍻

Personally, this win will be great for the All Blacks development. Counting last test of 2020, ABs had 10 test wins on the bounce before last night. This loss will hopefully reset their focus. But on the whole, 5 wins from 6 tests, Bledisloe and RC in the cabinet, only the extremely hard to please would not be satisfied with this result.

I'm sad that my team lost. Our discipline was nog up to scratch and I think that's what had cost us the game. That was the being said, the Boks was better on defense etc. So well done Boks.. I'm still a All Black supporter from Cape Town

Definitely got the Metal Fortitude for Pressure Rugby👍🏻👍🏻🏉🏉

Seems like a square up penalty 🤣🤣 from the previous mistake when jordy kicked it to go ahead 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

Ethan Blackadder what a hard working lad great player should have started

Pick an All Black team already and stick with it. Bokkes great win, back to number 1.

Too bad it is no pretty much impossible to watch it in the US. Should have stuck with ESPN, and thought about growing the sport long-term vs. short-term $

Bad decisions at line outs, captain not good at making critical correct decisions at critical times. Example, last 60 seconds should use use any of the fire powers at the back for an drop goal instead of pick n go to wind the time down.

Same old up 3 trys to one, but penalty after penalty, keeps them in the game. Line outs and scrums were a massive wakeup call again.

Is it me or have I noticed the fact that everytime we play under an English referee we NEVER get the run of thge green!

AB should ve played the game by kicking into springbok territory without keeping possession to waste time in that last 30 seconds

Thank you Springboks. ❤❤❤. 🤣🤣🤣. They haven't finished yet. Love it. 👌👍

Had Pollard at least kicked over only 50% of the penalties he wasted Springboks could have won last match against Australia and both matches against ABs with over 8 points difference. Let this be a learning curve to Springbok selectors. Dont play Pollard again

Nice one RSA..Happy for you RSA...❤...

Abs will cum back stronger 🖤🖤🖤
