At one stage it looked as though Wayne Pivac would be dusting off his boots, such was the dire injury situation that faced the Wales coach. Thankfully, for both Pivac and Wales supporters, Taulupe Faletau is fit to play at number eight. And in another huge boost, George North has recovered from the injury he picked up playing for the Ospreys.

On a less positive note, Josh Adams is still carrying a thumb injury – he'll be replaced by Rio Dyer, who makes his Test match debut against one of the world's most feared sides. Justin Tipuric will slip on the captain's armband in place of Dan Biggar who will sit out the 2022 Autumn Nations Series with a knee injury.

As for the All Blacks, it looks like Ian Foster has wheeled out the big guns. After trying out a few different players during last weekend's 38-31 win over Japan, the NZ coach has selected the likes of Ethan de Groot, Aaron Smith, Rieko Ioane and the Barrett brothers. Sam Whitelock will skipper the All Blacks in place of the Sam Cane, who suffered a fractured cheekbone in Japan. New Zealand remain favourites but having lost four matches already this season, the cracks are starting to show.

Watch Wales vs New Zealand live stream from abroad with a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant rugby rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 percent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
