THE All Blacks on Friday made three changes in their side and included injured skipper Richie McCaw for this weekend's World Cup semi-final against Australia at Eden Park.
New Zealand also named Aaron Cruden at fly-half, Israel Dagg at fullback and Richard Kahui returns to the wing.
Cruden is the All Blacks' third fly-half of the World Cup after tournament-ending groin injuries to Dan Carter and Colin Slade.
Dagg returns from injury to replace injured Mils Muliaina at fullback, while Kahui ousts Sonny Bill Williams on the left wing.
McCaw has not trained this week as he rests his injured foot to enable him to take part in Sunday's big match against the Wallabies.
