The All Blacks will be led by Sam Cane. Lock Samuel Whitelock will be participating in his fourth tournament. Six players will be participating in their third tournament, nine will be participating in their second tournament, while seventeen will be participating in their first tournament.
Whitelock leads the All Blacks with 145 Test caps, while halfback Cam Roigard is the newest All Black with one Test cap. This is the most experienced Rugby World Cup squad in history, with 1493 combined caps.
“It’s a great privilege to both select and be selected for an All Blacks Rugby World Cup squad,” said head coach Ian Foster.
“We congratulate those 33 players selected. This group has grown in belief and is highly motivated to represent our country with pride in France, as we seek to be the first nation to win the Rugby World Cup four times.
“This year’s Rugby World Cup promises to be the most competitive yet and the pool draw means we have to ready right from the outset. We have worked hard through the first part of our season and have made some strong progress through the Rugby Championship and the Bledisloe series. There is more growth to come and more is needed.
“This is a vastly experienced team but with over half the players going to their first RWC, it has a strong balance of youth and future planning.
“The challenge is to continue our growth through the game in London vs South Africa, into our camp in Germany before arriving in Lyon with a clear focus on performance in each of our pool games.”
