McCaw wary of a motivated smoking Joe

The New Zealand captain Richie McCaw says he expects out of favour winger Joe Rocokoko to be at his devastating best when the All Blacks take on the Barbarians at Twickenham on Sunday morning.

McCaw was the surprise selection in an almost completely different starting team to last weekend.

Other notable selections include Cory Jane, who will start his fifth game of the tour in his preferred position of fullback, chosen to lineup alongside tour debutante wings Zac Guildford and Ben Smith.

Openside flanker McCaw says Rocokoko has plenty to prove and the back three will have their hands full marking one of the All Blacks most prolific try-scorers.
