Cape Town - Waisake Naholo is set to start at wing for the All Blacks in Saturday’s Rugby Championship Test at Kings Park in Durban.

After six weeks on the sidelines with a leg injury, Naholo is expected to be unleashed against the Boks this weekend, the Stuff.co.nz website reports.

His return will come either at the expense of Israel Dagg or Julian Savea, with the latter likely to miss out.

Naholo has only played seven Tests since making his debut in July last year - his much-publicised broken legs and a torn hamstring on his way to the tryline in the 42-8 thrashing of the Wallabies in Sydney halting his progression.

The world champions also have a big decision to make in the midfield, with Anton Lienert-Brown, Ryan Crotty, George Moala and Malakai Fekitoa all vying for starting berths.
