http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby/all-blacks/5176162/Colin-Slade-included-in-All-Blacks-training-camp

The players invited to the first camp:
Chiefs: Ben Afeaki, Hikawera Elliot, Richard Kahui, Brendon Leonard, Liam Messam, Mils Muliaina and Sitiveni Sivivatu.
Hurricanes: Aaron Cruden, Hosea Gear, Andrew Hore, Cory Jane, Ma'a Nonu, Conrad Smith, Neemia Tialata, Victor Vito and Piri Weepu.
Highlanders: Jimmy Cowan, Tom Donnelly, Jarrad Hoeata, Colin Slade, Ben Smith and Adam Thomson.
Injured players: Israel Dagg, Isaia Toeava and Tony Woodcock.

No Donald…*happy dance*

Don’t know why they bothered calling Tialata in though – he’s off overseas, can’t handle the pace of the modern game, and got absolutely monstered by Crockett – should’ve called Mackintosh to give him some more high-level exposure.

Donald is the only real notable omission. Didn't think Tialata or Afeaki would have been included and can't really see the point in bringing in Leonard...he'd be number 5 for sure.

I'd say they're in for any potential injuries that might arise in the finals.

Agree the likes of Tialata and Leonard are long shots, but they do have test experience so would be seriously considered if someone falls over. Especially Tialata who, unlike McIntosh, can play both sides of the scrum.

Apparently Boric's injury is similar to whats kept Woody out for months, which means Hoeata and Donnelly (similarly long shots this time last week) could become genuine options now.
