Coles, Barrett brothers named in All Blacks squad for Lions series

Coles, Barrett brothers named in All Blacks squad for Lions series Coles, Barrett brothers named in All Blacks squad for Lions series

"This has been by far the toughest team that we've had to select for some time and some players who are in very good form missed out, and we always feel for them".

Of the two new All Blacks, Hansen said Barrett "has a skillset which is complete and has a great running and kicking game".

Jodie Barrett's Wellington Hurricanes teammate Ngani Laumape is the only other newcomer in a squad which includes four members of the Auckland Blues who upset the Lions 22-16 on Wednesday as well as Jerome Kaino who is still recovering from knee surgery.

Star hooker Dane Coles has been troubled by concussion issues in Super Rugby but has still been named in a squad captained by Kieran Read and including 1164 Test caps of experience and an average of 35 Test caps per player.

"But as is the nature of Test rugby I'm sure a number of them will get an opportunity, if not in this series, then throughout the season".

Prop Charlie Faumuina and flyhalf Aaron Cruden were included in the 33-man squad despite having signed with European clubs for next season, undoubtedly due to Hansen preferring to stick with players who have proved themselves at test level.

Rieko Ioane, his brother Akira and Tawera Kerr-Barlow will be released to play for the Maori All Blacks on June 17, Hansen added.

Liam Coltman, Vaea Fifita, Jack Goodhue, Akira Ioane and Matt Todd are in as injury cover.

There is no room either for former Bulldog Nehe Milner-Skudder and Damian McKenzie who have been named in the Maori All Blacks squad to play the Lions.


Chiefs back Charlie Ngatai - who has played once for the All Blacks - is included despite ongoing concussion concerns.

All Blacks 2015 World Cup star Nehe Milner-Skudder missed most of a year ago with a shoulder problem and has been sidelined for much of 2017 with a foot complaint, before recently returning to the fray with the Hurricanes.

It is the first time three brothers have been in the same All Blacks squad and only the fourth time three members of the same family have been made All Blacks.

Intriguingly, in-form Chiefs winger James Lowe is listed as a midfield back.

Highlanders co-captain Ash Dixon has been named to skipper the side.

Highlanders loose forward Elliot Dixon with the ball against the Cheetahs earlier this season.

"We're excited by the uniqueness that comes with playing a Lions series as it only comes around every 12 years".

These two sides last met in 2005, when the Maori side won a fierce contest 19-13 in Hamilton.
