Sonny Bill Williams will return to the All Blacks in their Rugby Championship opener against Australia after serving his four-match suspension.
He has not played for seven weeks since his suspension after a dangerous shoulder charge where he was sent off in the second Test against the Lions.
According to AFP, in a revamped line-up with six changes to the side, only halves Beauden Barrett and Aaron Smith remain from the starting backline.
Damian McKenzie will get an opportunity to take a claim at fullback as Ben Smith moves to the wing. Ryan Crotty and Rieko Ioane return from injury and illness respectively AFP adds.
Coach, Steve Hansen said: "This Test will give us a great opportunity to gauge where we are at when it comes to things we have been working on since the Lions Tour."
