All Blacks: Israel Dagg, Cory Jane, Conrad Smith, Ma'a Nonu, Richard Kahui, Daniel Carter, Piri Weepu, Adam Thomson, Richie McCaw, Jerome Kaino, Brad Thorn, Sam Whitelock, Owen Franks, Keven Mealamu, Tony Woodcock. Reserves: Andrew Hore, Ben Franks, Ali Williams, Anthony Boric, Andrew Ellis, Colin Slade, Sonny Bill Williams.
Apart from Kieran Read, who is set to return against Canada next Snday, we reckon that this is pretty much as strong a side as the All Blacks could field. There will be debate over half-back where Jimmy Cowan seems to be on the outer, but otherwise, that looks in every respect a first-choice squad.
Do you agree?
