World champions New Zealand will parade three new caps in Saturday's first Test against Ireland at Eden Park, Auckland.
Wing Julian Savea, scrum-half Aaron Smith and lock Brodie Retallick all make their Test debuts in a team captained by World Cup skipper Richie McCaw.
Smith will have Dan Carter as his half-back partner, while Savea features among a back-three that also includes Isreal Dagg and Zac Guildford.
Coach Steve Hansen, meanwhile, has gone for a powerful midfield partnership of Sonny Bill Williams and Conrad Smith as New Zealand look to get their season off to a winning start.
"We picked them (new caps) because they have all shown that they have special qualities which they now get the opportunity to show on the international stage," Hansen said.
"The build-up so far this week has been good. With such a short preparation time, we have focused on keeping things simple and bringing the team together.
"We have been concentrating on making sure we have clarity early in the week, increasing intensity and accuracy as the week goes on, which should allow us to put in a performance that we can be proud of on Saturday."
A crowd of more than 40,000 is expected for the first of three Tests against Ireland, with the series continuing in Christchurch on June 16 and then Hamilton seven days later.
