New boy Coles hoping to get some game time

11:34 am on 7 November 2012

The Hurricanes hooker Dane Coles says he doesn't really feel like an All Black yet.

Coles is on his first tour with the All Blacks and admits to having had a hectic time since arriving in Edinburgh for the tour opener against Scotland at Murrayfield on Monday morning.

Coles is third in line for the All Black rakes but should get some game time in the next two weeks with the selectors picking two separate sides for Scotland and Italy.

He says he's definitely felt like the newbie this week.

The All Black team to play Scotland will be named on Friday night.
