9:03 am on 1 September 2013

The All Blacks will have seven extra players as injury cover during the test week in Hamilton as the selectors take no chances against Argentina.

Ben Afeaki, Ryan Crotty, Frank Halai, Francis Saili, Colin Slade, Brad Shields and Luke Whitelock return to camp while Taranaki hooker Rhys Marshall will also spend several days in camp as the All Blacks coaches assess the potential of several young hookers during the home test weeks.
