All Blacks bring in another Ioane

SQUAD UPDATE: The All Blacks have added five players to their squad for this weekend's upcoming Test against the Wallabies in Dunedin on Saturday.

Kane Hames, Nehe Milner-Skudder, David Havili, Akira Ioane and Atu Moli will link up with the squad as New Zealand look to wrap up this year's Bledisloe Cup series.

Steve Hansen's side scored eight tries on their way to a 54-34 victory over the Wallabies in Sydney last weekend.

Hames will likely be included on the bench this weekend in the place of Wyatt Crockett, who suffered a head knock in the victory in Sydney.

Milner-Skudder and Havili were both part of the All Blacks original squad, but they did not travel to Sydney.

No reason was given for the call-up of uncapped No.8 Ioane.

Ioane's brother, Rieko, scored two tries in the All Blacks' win in Sydney.
