There you go Mike:
1. Wyatt Crockett , 2. Corey Flynn, 3. Owen Franks ,4. Luke Romano , 5. Samuel Whitelock , , 6. George Whitelock , 7. Matt Todd , 8. Kieran Read (c) , 9. Andy Ellis, 10. Dan Carter ,11. Israel Dagg ,12. Ryan Crotty, 13. Robbie Fruean , 14. Adam Whitelock, 15. Tom Taylor
Replacements : 16. Ben Funnell , 17. Joe Moody, 18. Dominic Bird , 19. Luke Whitelock , 20. Willi Heinz , 21. Tyler Bleyendaal , 22. Tom Marshall
Tom Taylor is a usefull player and at one stage he was playing so well that he forced Dan Carter to 12. That is not going to happen now with Ryan Crotty probably NZL's best 12 at the moment and Dan getting a bit long in the tooth so they have taken the best 15 and shifted him to the wing. Taylor is good but not that good. I agree, poor call in my opinion but come Friday night, we might just be eating those words.
