    Sam Cane will captain the All Blacks for a third time next weekend against Argentina

    Sam Cane will captain the All Blacks for a third time next weekend against Argentina


    The loose forward's got the nod with skipper Kieran Read staying behind as well as Sam Whitelock.

    Cane led the side against Namibia at the last World Cup and against Italy in 2016.

    Ben Smith will be his vice-captain.

    Uncapped duo Braydon Ennor and Sevu Reece and one-test wing George Bridge are the only Crusaders players who will travel with the squad tonight.

    Highlanders flanker Shannon Frizell will stay behind with a cut over a joint.

    All Blacks coach Steve Hansen says Sonny Bill Williams will be taken to Buenos Aires, but is no guarantee to get over his hamstring niggle to play.
