Shadow All Blacks have hit out against Barbarians

7:17 am on 23 October 2008

A shadow All Black team, minus its Canterbury and Wellington players has come through a trial match with a Barbarians side in Auckland relatively unscathed.

They won 56-10 with Dan Carter slotted in at second five outside Stephen Donald at first five.

Coach Graham Henry says the only injury concern is prop John Afoa who suffered a knock to his keen and it won't be known until Thursday whether or not he'll be available for the Bledisloe Cup test in Hong Kong next week.
