The All Blacks selectors have picked two new caps for the first test against Ireland on Saturday, while going back to Scott Barrett in the six jersey for the first time since the 2019 Rugby World Cup semifinal defeat.

Crusaders standout Leicester Fainga'anuku will debut on the wing while fellow debutant Pita Gus Sowakula is set to play his first test off the bench.

Head coach Ian Foster said the selectors were excited to name the first All Blacks test team for 2022.

Ian Foster joined Mike Hosking.
