Finally, Sam Whitelock will not be available for the remainder of the Rugby Championship with the All Blacks and will join the squad for the November international window. On the other hand, Richie Mo’unga will join the New Zealand team on September 14 for the last game against the Springboks.
The second line will begin to prepare to return with the selected Maori for the tour the northern hemisphere. The decision not to fly to Queensland was due to short training time that he may have had. First of all, you would have to comply with quarantine established by the australian government two weeks and only then would he put on his boots to start the practices with his teammates.
On the other hand, the talented back will be available for Ian Foster, but only as of the sixth and last date of the contest. Mo’unga must respect the 14 days of isolation on aussie soil. Then the Head Coach could have him on the team for the match against South Africa. Notably Beauden Barrett achieved a satisfactory performance on his return as a New Zealand opener. Undoubtedly, a difficult decision for the Kiwi coach, in a place that will be in dispute to see who will be the one to see the All Blacks jersey number 10.
