I can see why Hansen and the NZRFU want him to play
1, He's pretty darn good and he can help secure NZ the trophy by getting the AB's into a 2 wins from 2 situation.
2, He'll help the NZRFU sell tickets because he's a big name draw. In this economic climate that's good for NZ rugby.

@Dingbat32, SBW will only be available for the first two games...and both are against the Aus
I ain't complaining if he makes it...he is the in form 12 so why not pick the best team you can while you can?

Very surprised at this, and the young up and coming players who are desperate to get a shot at the jersey must be gutted.
Will be interesting to see how the Boks play him. He can expect some meat to fly his way!

As I said in a post yesterday if I was an Aussie supporter, I'd be afraid, very afraid. Can't wait.
