All Blacks hooker Liam Coltman is getting a rare chance to don the black jersey against the Springboks after he was named on the bench for the Wellington test.
The 28-year-old has been in and out of the All Blacks camp for the last three years, and Saturday's test will only be his third for New Zealand.

He won his first cap against Italy in 2016 in Rome and then played against France at Forsyth Barr Stadium earlier this season. Both appearances were off the bench.
Coltman has often found himself stuck behind Dane Coles, Codie Taylor and Nathan Harris in the pecking order, but coach Steve Hansen is giving him a chance in the final test in New Zealand this year.
Even though the Highlanders and Otago player finds himself holding the tackle bags most of the time, he always has a beaming smile on his face.
Coltman caught up with Crooked Feed's Ross Karl to talk about being in the All Blacks team, and his dad's obsession with driving to every game he plays in.
