Ranger and Messam have been dropped from the team for the Australian leg of the Tri-Nations since they had to trim the squad down to 26. Guildford is also out again as Rokocoko returns from injury.
All Blacks squad for Melbourne: Forwards: John Afoa, Anthony Boric, Tom Donnelly, Corey Flynn, Ben Franks, Owen Franks, Jerome Kaino, Richie McCaw (captain), Keven Mealamu, Kieran Read, Brad Thorn, Victor Vito, Samuel Whitelock and Tony Woodcock. Backs: Daniel Carter, Jimmy Cowan, Aaron Cruden, Israel Dagg, Cory Jane, Mils Muliaina, Ma'a Nonu, Josevata Rokocoko, Conrad Smith, Benson Stanley and Piri Weepu. Alby Mathewson will also assemble with the squad as cover for Weepu who is preparing for the arrival of his first child.
Meaning they'll probably revert to the XV from the first test, plus Vito as Loosie Cover. There'll be a tough call on the locks as Donelly is playing really well - Boric will probably usurp Whitelock on the bench.
