Top wingers take on Japan

8:19 am on 15 September 2011

The top All Black backline is starting to take shape with the centres and wings to play Japan in Hamilton on Friday night set to stake their claim.

Dan Carter has been ruled out trough injury and has been replaced by Colin Slade but outside him are Ma'a Nonu, Conrad Smith, Cory Jane and Richard Kahui.

Coach Graham Henry says he wants to see his two in-form wingers make a mark in the match.

It's also a big Test for fullback Mils Muliaina with Israel Dagg putting pressure on him for the fullbacks spot.
