The Irish rugby coach Declan Kidney has added 11 players to his squad to prepare for this weekend's clash with the All Blacks at Croke Park in Dublin.

Those added include Ryan Caldwell, Malcolm O'Kelly, denis Leamy, Girvan Dempsey and Geordan Murphy.

Ireland crushed Canada 55-nil yesterday in Kidney's first game in charge.

New Zealand showed their depth of talent by defeating Scotland 32-6 with a largely second-string side at Murrayfield yesterday.
