Ricky Riccitelli has been called in as cover for Nathan Harris who has left camp for the birth of his first child.

Beauden Barrett is also suffering concussion symptoms following his head knock in the 12th minute of the first Test and will not travel to Dunedin with the team coach Steve Hansen said.

"There's no point putting him under extra pressure of the travel, when he can stay at home and rest and come down tomorrow or not come down at all. We won't take any risk with him.”
