VARIOUS OF NEW ZEALAND ALL BLACKS RUGBY TEAM MEETING FANS STORY: All Blacks' captain, Kieran Read, said Saturday's match against Tonga would be a "big game" as his team trained on Friday (September 6) for their final warm-up match before the Rugby World Cup begins in Japan later this month.

When they face Tonga in Hamilton on Saturday (September 7).

Read said that the All Blacks were "focused on this game, and this game only" for the warm-up match being played in Hamilton.

Beauden Barrett has reverted to flyhalf after playing the last three tests at fullback for the All Blacks' and will take back the number 10 jersey from the injured Richie Mo'unga with Josh Ioane, who is not in the World Cup squad, likely to make his test debut from the bench against the Pacific islanders.

Coach Steve Hansen had named just two specialist flyhalves for the World Cup and Ioane had been widely expected to play the Tonga game after Mo'unga injured his shoulder against Australia last month.
