All Blacks locks Sam Whitelock, Brodie Retallick and Scott Barrett

Crusaders lock Scott Barrett is not holding any grudges about playing back up to Sam Whitelock and Brodie Retallick in the All Blacks.

In fact, brother Beauden Barrett believes he is lucky to play in the same era as the two world‑class locks.

Scott Barrett could see more time in the starting position for the All Blacks after it was revealed following Saturday's win against the Pumas that Retallick will miss six weeks with a shoulder injury.

Blues lock Patrick Tuipulotu has been called into the squad as injury cover.

Meanwhile the All Blacks winning against the Springboks this year would mean they defend the Rugby Championship title.

The All Blacks will now take on the Springboks at 7.35pm this Saturday while the Wallabies will take on Argentina at 10pm Saturday.
