The All Blacks will regain the services of star midfielder Conrad Smith for their match with Argentina in Wellington this Saturday.

The Hurricanes captain had been out of action since having surgery on his eye at the end of the Super Rugby season which led to him missing the opening two games of Rugby Championship against Australia.

The All Blacks' assistant coach Ian Foster says Smith's return is a boost for the team.
