Shields not thinking about being an All Black

5:44 pm on 23 May 2012

The fringe All Blacks aren't losing sleep over whether or not they'll make the cut for the upcoming three-test series against Ireland.

The wider training squad's first camp finished in Auckland on Tuesday, as the selectors crunch the numbers and discuss the possible makeup of the squad for next month's tests.

Those who miss the cut will get a three-week break, with Super Rugby taking a holiday for the June international series.

Uncapped forward Brad Shields could be among the five players in the training group who are left out the 30-man test squad, but he says he hasn't given much thought to the next stage of selection.
