Facing Fiji in black: Rupeni Caucaunibuca

Former Fiji, Toulouse and Blues winger Rupeni Caucaunibuca has been included in the "Classic All Blacks" squad for Wednesday's clash with Fiji.

Nine ex-All Blacks have been named in the Classic All Blacks squad for the game marking the centenary of the Fiji Rugby Union.

Scrum-half Justin Marshall will captain the side which will be managed by former New Zealand Test lock Andy Haden.

Caucaunibuca is one of three Fiji-born players in the invitation team, which also includes former All Blacks wingers Joe Rokocoko and Sitiveni Sivivatu.

Loose forwards Adam Thomson, Jerry Collins, Rodney So'oialo and Chris Masoe are also amongst the big names to wear the black jersey.

The Classic All Blacks squad was chosen when both New Zealand and Australia declined requests to play Fiji in the celebratory game.
