The All Blacks are not concerned about their omission from the latest World Cup advert aimed at increasing ticket sales.

The All Blacks are not concerned about their omission from the latest World Cup advert aimed at increasing ticket sales.

The video, featuring Game of Thrones star Charles Dance, includes players, either past or present, from all the home nations as well as a number of other countries, but curiously omitted reigning champions New Zealand.

The majority of those involved currently ply their trade in the UK, which would appear to be the reason for the lack of All Black involvement, and assistant coach Ian Foster was not concerned.

Foster revealed that in actual fact he had not yet had a chance to watch the video, which is aimed at boosting attendances, with tickets going on sale on September 12.

"I haven't seen that to be honest. But I'm pretty sure that we have qualified for the World Cup so we'll probably be there," Foster said.
