The All Blacks' locking stocks have received a boost with Anthony Boric finally set to make a return to the rugby field this weekend after a four month lay-off with a broken toe.

Boric has been named in the North Harbour side to play Hawkes Bay at Albany on Saturday.

Centre Anthony Tuitavake is also back from injury having been named in the reserves.

Tuitavake's managing an inoperable pubic bone fracture and says he's taking it week by week.
