Our 2 starters living in Auckland (Hyland & Hallam-Eames) still unavailable, as well as Tu'ungafasi who would likely start.
Have heard Olsen may not be able to travel due to the impending birth of a child, Rob Rush was in a moon boot in some pics I saw earlier in the week, so he will be gone.
Ranger, Tua still unavailable, unsure on Tom, but likely unavailble.
My team, based on assumptions above:
Te Whata-Colley*, Wright, Uluilakepa (although I expect they'll start Wright, Tou, Uluilakepa)
Pryor, McNamara, Maa'u
Macilai, N Cooper, Rush
*I think Te Whata-Colley can play both sides, if not, Li to start there in my team
