Josh Ioane to join New Zealand squad ahead of Tonga Test

Josh Ioane to join New Zealand squad ahead of Tonga Test”

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen revealed that he wouldn't risk any player who wasn't 100 percent fit ahead of Saturday's Test against Tonga.

Asked if there was a determination to win the Rugby World Cup with Wales in the last crack at it by Gatland's 11-year coaching regime, Edwards said with a chuckle: "I'll be at the next World Cup because I am going to France", although he conceded no formal announcement had yet been made.

"It doesn't worry me, you're better to be the favourite than not the favourite", he said. Me and Lammy are still close friends and message each other after matches.

He was poised to make a post-World Cup return to Wigan as head coach, but that arrangement was announced as officially being off earlier this year. We'll find out this weekend. "There are a few things to sort out so it's not definite, but I will be staying in rugby union". There's no negative in my view. "I think they'll win Super League this year again". It's a waste of time asking me.

After appearing in two games for provincial side Counties Manukau, Williams then returned to the All Blacks set-up and played nearly 70 minutes against the Wallabies, proving he was on track for the global showpiece in Japan. "I used to sign one-year contracts at Wigan sometimes". Edwards said, referring to Sam Warburton's red card in the 2011 semi-final loss to France.

Test week in Hamilton involves several activities - and its Tongan fans who get the first chance to meet and greet their team, this afternoon (Monday, 2 September) at Marist Park when the side hosts an open training session from 3pm. "From the All Blacks point of view they'll be happy he got through 40 minutes".

"We got together last night, we had a training run today, he's here as an insurance policy and if Richie's not right, then we'll make the next decision then".

"I have set myself a little target: trying to get into a final and just take it from there".
