The Winslow is going to play game two of the Lions vs. All Blacks. We will stay open past 4am this Friday and will continue to stay open for the 3:35am EST game which will all be aired live in HD.
New Zealand has made two changes for the second Test against the British and Irish Lions in Wellington on Saturday.
Waisake Naholo comes in on the wing and Anton Lienert-Brown at outside centre. They replace the wounded group of Ben Smith (concussion) and Ryan Crotty (hamstring). Ngani Laumape has also been added into the Black’s bench Following the 24-year-old back impressed playing for Hurricanes from the draw with the Lions on Tuesday.
The All Blacks can seal the series after their 30-15 win in the first Test in Auckland. New Zealand’s head coach Steve Hansen said the loss of Smith and Crotty creates an chance for others. “Whilst we’re pleased with the win last weekend, we now realize that it was only a start, in what is a three-Test Series. That means the job is far from done,” he said.” We’re aware the British and Irish Lions have their backs to the wall and will chuck everything in us to keep themselves alive in the sequence.” They are a quality side who we respect enormously. In fact, last week’s Test could have gone either way had they taken much more of their chances.”
The Lions will be looking to bounce back after losing the first Test. Coach Warren Gatland has appointed Johnny Sexton and Owen Farrell collectively for the very first time, while injured pair Robbie Henshaw and George North are returning home.
New Zealand squad for the second TestTeam: I Dagg; W Naholo, A Lienert-Brown, SB Williams, R Ioane; B Barrett, A Smith; J Moody, C Taylor, O Franks, B Retallick, S Whitelock, J Kaino, S Cane, K Read (capt).
