  • Print

WELLINGTON, New Zealand - Uncapped centre Malakai Fekitoa and lock Patrick Tuipulotu have been named in a 31-man All Blacks squad to prepare for Saturday's first rugby test against England.

Fekitoa has been outstanding in Super Rugby this season for the Dunedin-based Highlanders and Tuipulotu has made a reputation as a powerful and mobile ball-carrier for the Auckland-based Blues.

Flanker Jerome Kaino was recalled to the New Zealand squad Sunday for the first time since the 2011 Rugby World Cup final at Auckland's Eden Park — venue for Saturday's test — while fellow backrower Victor Vito has been named for the first time since the 2013 series against France.

Aaron Cruden is expected to start at flyhalf in the first match of the three-test series after being named with Beauden Barrett and Colin Slade.
