The All Blacks will be without Brodie Retallick in the third Bledisloe clash this Saturday.
Retallick has not played since the All Blacks’ record win over South Africa in Albany, remaining at home with his family after the loss of their unborn baby.
Luke Romano will also be absent from the Brisbane trip, his wife having just given birth to their son.
The Blues' Patrick Tuipulotu will stay with the squad as Romano's replacement for the third Bledisloe week, along with flanker Matt Todd.
Crusaders flyhalf Richie Mo’unga comes into the squad as injury cover, with Nehe Milner-Skudder's season over and Beauden Barrett being monitored for a head knock he suffered against the Springboks in Cape Town.
Australia takes on New Zealand on Saturday October 21, at Suncorp Stadium, kicking off at 7pm AEST, 8pm AEDT LIVE on FOX SPORTS, Network Ten, Win and via RUGBY.com.au RADIO. Buy tickets here.
