Stanley likely to be named in starting fifteen for Ireland

9:54 am on 8 June 2010

There is likely to be at least one new cap in the All Blacks team when it is named this afternoon to take on Ireland in New Plymouth this weekend.

With so many injuries in the midfield, the 25-year-old Aucklander newcomer Benson Stanley is likely to go straight into the starting lineup.

Coach Graham Henry has said Stanley's is a leader for the Blues, and mature enough to handle the occasion.
