Just two All Blacks who played on last November's northern hemisphere tour have been included among the five New Zealand Super Rugby squads for the inaugural Brisbane Tens.
Highlanders hooker Liam Coltman and Blues back George Moala, who both made one appearance on the tour, have been named for the tournament next week.
Seven other All Blacks - including World Cup winners Nehe Milner-Skudder, Cory Jane (both Hurricanes) and Liam Messam (Chiefs) - have been selected.
Blues back Rene Ranger, Crusaders midfielder Seta Tamanivalu, Highlanders loose forward Luke Whitelock and Chiefs hooker Hika Elliot are the others to have worn the All Blacks jersey.
The number of All Blacks selected in the NZ squads had been in question after much of the advertising around the event had centred on the likes of Israel Dagg, Jerome Kaino and Damian McKenzie.
However, the New Zealand Rugby Players Association pointed to a mandatory 12-week stand-down period for players who toured the northern hemisphere.
All Blacks forward Steven Luatua was withdrawn from the Blues squad after failing to recover from injury in time for tournament.
As well 2015's World Rugby breakthrough player of the year Milner-Skudder, the Hurricanes have named 53-test All Black Cory Jane, who has recently returned from a stint in Japan.
A strong looking Hurricanes side sees blockbusting prop Loni "The Tongan Bear" Uhila come in as late replacement for Jeffery Toomaga-Allen. The squad also features boom lock Vaea Fifita and former New Zealand Under-20s star Jordie Barrett - both of whom toured with the All Blacks as injury cover last year - as well as former Warriors league star Ngani Laumape.
The Crusaders will be boosted by the presence of star new recruit Digby Ioane - a veteran of 37 tests for the Wallabies - and All Blacks Sevens star Tim Bateman.
A high-powered Chiefs squad will be anchored by 47-test All Black Liam Messam and veteran All Blacks hooker Hika Elliott, with All Blacks Sevens star turned Samoa test international Tim Nanai-Williams providing the pace out wide.
The collection of New Zealand stars will be joined over 20 Wallabies test players at the February 11 and 12 tournament at Suncorp Stadium.
