Chiefs Coach Colin Cooper has not had any phone calls from All Blacks Coach Steve Hansen about his halfback selections, but he may get one now after stating that Brad Weber has to be in the discussion for the All Blacks' third halfback spot.

Cooper named Weber as the captain for the Chiefs' clash with the Sharks in Hamilton last weekend and made the rare move to leave Weber on for the entire 80 minutes.

Weber has played 17 minutes for the All Blacks in his entire career, coming off the bench to replace Andy Ellis when they played Samoa in 2015. It remains his only Test cap.

But Cooper says there has to be a discussion for more selections with his current form.

Meanwhile the Chiefs will take on the Blues at 7.35pm this Saturday.

Tomorrow, the Hurricanes take on the Jaguares at 7.35pm while the Rebels face the Bulls at 9.45pm
