All Blacks Wild Card

-

With almost every current All Blacks prop playing at the Blues in 2021, the opportunit­y for players elsewhere to stake their claim to a run with the top squad will be there. That should see Atunaisa Moli return to the spotlight and have as good a shot as any to make his return to the All Blacks squad. The young prop has struggled with injuries in recent seasons, but should he stay healthy, he should be the team's top loosehead after Nepo Laulala's departure during the off-season, and his ability to play tighthead as well only offers more opportunit­y through flexibilit­y.

 ??  ?? RETURN OF THE MAN Atu Moli will be hoping to win back his All Blacks place this year.
