Fiji-born Crusaders winger Sevu Reece is the only Fijian player selected in the All Blacks starting XV squad to take on Argentina in the second test of the 2021 Rugby Championship tonight.
Coach Ian Foster has made six changes to his lineup for today’s match, from the one which beat Australia last weekend.
But those changes don't notably weaken the All Blacks — Foster has been able to replace wingers Rieko Ioane and Will Jordan with Reece and George Bridge, without losing any pace or power in the back three.
Meanwhile another Fijian George Bower has been rested while Karl Tu'inukuafe will start at prop.
The All Blacks will meet Argentina at 7.05pm.
All Blacks: Jordie Barrett, Sevu Reece, Anton Lienert-Brown, David Havili, George Bridge, Beauden Barrett, TJ Perenara, Luke Jacobson, Dalton Papalii, Akira Ioane, Scott Barrett, Brodie Retallick (c), Nepo Laulala, Asafo Aumua, Karl Tu'inukuafe.
