Matt Todd surprise injury cover

The advent of training camps just about rules out the old-fashioned bolter in All Blacks squads but the addition of Matt Todd's name as "injury cover'' just about qualifies.
It's certainly a surprise.
Coach Steve Hansen had appeared comfortable with naming only Sam Cane as a specialist No7 for the two training camps, but the selectors have had a change of heart following the injuries to Crusaders locks Sam Whitelock and Dominic Bird.
Their franchise teammate Todd is the big winner out of all of this, Hansen saying they think Blues loose forward Steven Luatua, another newcomer, can cover second row too behind Luke Romano, Brodie Retallick and the uncapped Jeremy Thrush from Wellington and Hurricanes.
