Whitelock returns, Barrett free to play

Veteran All Blacks Samuel Whitelock returns to the side's second Fortinet Rugby Championship Test against South Africa next week.

Whitelock expects to complete his quarantine on the day of the first Test against the Springboks. 

Meanwhile, utility back Jordie Barrett will be available for selection to play against Argentina this week after his red card against Australia in Perth was dismissed by the SANZAAR Judicial committee.

Barrett scored a try early in the Fortinet Rugby Championship clash in Perth before being red-carded for making contact with the face of Wallabies winger Marika Koriebete with his boot after taking a high ball.

The All Blacks vs Argentina match kicks off at 7.05pm on Sunday.
