Organising the midfield appears to be the main concern for the All Black coaches as they prepare to name their team today to take on South Africa in the tri-nations match in Hamilton this weekend.
Dan Carter ran at second five-eighth outside Stephen Donald at training yesterday, with Ma'a Nonu moving out to centre.
After the session Nonu said the training lineup didn't mean there had been a decision.... however one of the other options, Isaia Toeava, may have ruled himself out after suffering a gluteal strain at training yesterday.
The other injury concern, loose forward Kieran Read appears to be over his knee problem.
The All Blacks need a bonus point victory, while denying South Africa any points this weekend, to have any chance of retaining the Tri-Nations.
