Cape Town - Centre Malakai Fekitoa has been called into the All Blacks squad for the decisive third Test against the British and Irish Lions.
Initially, it was Ryan Crotty who was ruled out of the series after pulling his hamstring in the first Test. Many were surprised with All Blacks coach Steve Hansen's decision to bring Crusaders centre Jack Goodhue in as injury cover instead of Fekitoa.
However, now that Sonny Bill Williams has been suspended for four weeks after his red card for a shoulder charge to the face of Anthony Watson, Fekitoa has finally been included.
Ngani Laumape, who made his debut off the bench in Wellington, is the frontrunner to start at inside centre alongside Anton Lienert-Brown in the all-important third Test at Eden Park next weekend.
