Wellington welcome back All Blacks

9:02 am on 28 August 2012

The Wellington rugby side will be bolstered by the return of All Blacks Victor Vito and Julian Savea for tonight's ITM Cup match against Hawke's Bay in the capital.

Both players have been released from the All Blacks to get some game time with their province.

Vito goes into the starting side at number eight at the expense of Savea's younger brother Ardie, while Julian starts on the left wing.

Wellington beat Manawatu first up while Hawke's Bay were beaten by Auckland.
