Super Rugby Pacific: Chiefs star winger Emoni Narawa tipped for All Blacks by rugby great Jeff Wilson

All Blacks great Jeff Wilson has called for Chiefs star Emoni Narawa to be included in New Zealand's Rugby Championship squad, after starring performances for the Super Rugby leaders.

Fijian-born Narawa has been a standout for the competition table-toppers and was instrumental in Saturday's win over reigning champion Crusaders.

With the Rugby World Cup just over four months away, Wilson believes Narawa has already done enough to be included in Ian Foster's Rugby Championship squad in July.

Wilson has been a vocal supporter of the 23-year-old, with his performance against the Crusaders another example of his claim to higher honours.

"It's a done deal," he told Sky Sports the Breakdown. 

"He's not a bolter because when Ian Foster mentions him in an article, that he's interested in the way he's doing to play, and the very next game on the biggest stage, in front of the biggest crowd, he goes out and performs as he did on Saturday night.

"This was a remarkable game where you needed to see some critical things from him and you saw it all.

"You saw him carrying the ball, you saw him kicking the ball, you saw athleticism, [he] contested the ball in the air, and most of all, defensively - I thought he was really strong.

"He got up and made his tackles, he was accurate, and that kick was important in the game. It was late in the game, he pinned the Crusaders deep in their own territory.

"I think for me, right now, he's in the squad, he would have to do a lot to not get an opportunity in the All Black jersey this season."

As a specialist winger, Narawa faces stiff competition to make Foster's squad, but could have the inside running with injury ruling out Sevu Reece for the rest of the year.

With Crusaders star Will Jordan still considered week-to-week with no date set for his return to rugby, Wilson believes there's a hole to be filled in the All Blacks.

"Have you seen Will Jordan yet? I haven't seen Will Jordan," he said. "We're not naming a Rugby World Cup squad, we're naming a Rugby Championship squad.

"There is a little bit of room, if someone is in that good of form, to give them an opportunity like we did last year with Mark Telea.

"If I don't see Will Jordan soon, it's one of those things for me, he may not need to be part of the Rugby Championship, he might just need rugby.

"And so it's time to go and play some provincial rugby to get him back on the field, and prove he's fit, that's my biggest concern right now about Will."
