All Blacks wing Julian Savea has been cleared to play after hurting his knee in training on Thursday. Coach Steve Hansen has made seven changes to the side that beat England at Twickenham last weekend. Fly-half Aaron Cruden replaces Daniel Carter in the starting XV and prop Wyatt Crockett replaces Tony Woodcock. Those changes see Beauden Barrett and Ben Franks come into the reserves. Cory Jane also returns to the XV, replacing Charles Piutau, while in the forwards, lock Luke Romano starts, with Brodie Retallick on the bench; Steven Luatua is at blindside with Sam Cane coming onto the bench to cover the back-row; and Andrew Hore takes Keven Mealamu's place at hooker. The squad also features the inclusion of uncapped scrum-half TJ Perenara on the bench.
Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt has recalled inside centre Gordon D'Arcy and Jonathan Sexton has recovered from the injury he picked up last week and will start the game. Brian O'Driscoll has also been passed fit to play and will equal Ronan O'Gara's haul of 128 caps for Ireland. David Kearney is on the left wing in place of the injured Fergus McFadden while the pack remains unchanged from the one that faced Australia.

There's plenty of excitement at the ground because the All Blacks are on the verge of an important milestone. If they win this match, they will become the first team in the professional era to win all their Tests in a season. Don't go away! We'll be back shortly with team news.
