Despite a number of injuries to regular players in the starting XV, this All Black side is still capable of doing some serious damage on the paddock.

IRANZ Staff Coach and Board Member Fitzpatrick named just one debutant in his XV on England's Sky Sport, Hurricanes fullback Jordie Barrett, while All Blacks regulars Kieran Read, Jerome Kaino, Ben Smith, Dane Coles, Nehe Milner-Skudder, and IRANZ Graduates Israel Dagg and Liam Squire were all not considered due to injuries.

The 92-test hooker found space for all three Barrett brothers with Beauden unsurprisingly picked at first five-eighth.

Notably, Fitzpatrick opted for Scott Barrett out of position at blindside flanker, ignoring Steven Luatua, Akira Ioane, Jordan Taufua, Elliot Dixon and Brad Shields.

Joining Barrett in the loose forwards were Sam Cane, who he named captain in Read's absence, and IRANZ Graduate Ardie Savea slotting in at No 8 where he has spent plenty of time for the Hurricanes this year.

Fitzpatrick's tight five formed an experienced bunch with Sam Whitelock and Brodie Retallick at lock and Owen Franks and Joe Moody the props. IRANZ Graduate Codie Taylor was selected as the hooker replacement for Dane Coles.

In the backs, Fitzpatrick opted for Aaron Smith over the in-form IRANZ Graduate TJ Perenara.

​The midfield combination of Ryan Crotty and Anton Lienert-Brown meant there was no room for Sonny Bill Williams, Malakai Fekitoa, George Moala, Charlie Ngatai or blockbusting Hurricanes midfielder Ngani Laumape.

IRANZ Graduate Julian Savea was an easy choice on the left wing, but Waisake Naholo's up and down form made him a surprise selection on the right wing.

Reiko Ioane was the biggest snub in the outside backs, while Vince Aso, Matt Duffie and George Bridge were uncapped options.
