Sonny Bill set to start in All Blacks final test of year

8:09 am on 24 November 2010

Sonny Bill Williams looks set to return at second five inside Conrad Smith as the All Blacks look to complete a rugby grand slam against Wales in Cardiff on Sunday morning.

That's the way they lined out for their latest training session with Isaia Toeava on the wing in place of Cory Jane and hooker Keven Mealamu and lock Brad Thorn packing down in the shadow starting fifteen.

Coach Graham Henry has made no secret of the fact he's treating the end of year tour as a dummy run ahead of next year's world cup and Conrad Smith says the All Blacks must prove they can win several tough games in succession.

Both teams will be announced tomorrow night.
