He nui ngā panonitanga ki te kapa Ōpango i te tākaro whiringa toa ki a Wērā mō te tūranga tuatoru, tuawhā hoki hei te Pōmere. Ko te tākaro whakamutunga hoki tērā a Steve Hansen hei kaiako, he tūranga kua waru ngā tau e nōhia ana e ia.

Ka tōia ki te kapa, ko ngā paehau, ko Rieko Ioane rāua ko Ben Smith, ā ko Brad Weber hoki ka eke i te pae. I matapaetia, ka tukua a Ben Smith mō tana tākaro whakamutunga i te kahu pango, ā ka pērā hoki te kapene, a Kieran Read, a Ryan Crotty anō hoki. 

I ngā poumua, nā te oranga ake o Matt Todd, ka eke ia ki te pae, ā ka tīmata a Shannon Frizell ki te taha kūiti o te kakari. Nā taua hūnukutanga, ka whakatāngia a Ardie Savea ki rahaki mō te wā tuatahi.  

E tūmanakohia ana, ko ngā taha e rua ka huaki, ahakoa te hinganga nui a ngā Ōpango rātou tahi ko Wērā i ngā whiringa whāiti.

"Theres been a lot of external talk around this being the game that no one wants to play" te kī a Hansen i tetahi pānui pāpāho i te rā nei.

"However, from our point of view, we can't wait to play it."
