7:07 am on 27 October 2008

Canterbury prop Greg Somerville, who was thought to have played his last game for the All Blacks, has joined the squad for the Hong Kong Bledisloe Cup Test against Australia next weekend.

Somerville will provide cover for John Afoa, who is still recovering from a knee injury, and will link up with the squad today.

The All Blacks have assembled in Auckland to prepare for the tour to Hong Kong, the UK and Ireland and will leave for Hong Kong at midnight.
