A couple of All Black sports still up for grabs

5:53 pm on 6 July 2011

The All Black assistant coach Steve Hansen says they've selected the majority of their squad for the Tri-Nations, but there are still a couple of spots up for grabs.

The All Blacks coaches have just finished a second training camp in Wellington involving players from the Highlanders, Hurricanes and Chiefs.

They'll name their Tri-Nations squad and team for the Fiji test later this month on Sunday.

Hansen says the final selections will hinge on how the Crusaders get through the Super Rugby final and so the last couple of days in Wellington has been very helpful...

Hansen says they'll be taking an interest in how Colin Slade plays for Canterbury against Wellington on Friday.

Slade and and Aaron Cruden are likely to be vying for Dan Carter's backup position.
