    Aaron Smith is welcoming Brad Weber's inclusion to the All Blacks for a very different reason

    Aaron Smith is welcoming Brad Weber's inclusion to the All Blacks for a very different reason


    Four years after playing his only test against Manu Samoa, the Hawkes Bay halfback finds preparing alongside Smith and TJ Perenara for the opening game of the Rugby Championship in Argentina.

    Aaron Smith says Weber's experience, leadership and energy is already standing out but he's also stoked for another reason.

    Smith says to have someone of a similar physical stature around the time is very nice for a smaller man like himself.
