All Blacks coach Steve Hansen switched up the starting XV — 11 changes in total — that beat South Africa by 23-13 in the opener in Yokohama, with the return of Rieko Ioane a notable inclusion.
Ioane, who has fallen out of favour with the All Blacks selectors after being one of the standouts in 2017 and 2018, gets his first taste of World Cup rugby — replacing George Bridge, while Jordie Barrett comes in for Sevu Reece on the other wing.
Jack Goodhue also returns from injury to the starting XV, teaming up alongside Sonny Bill Williams in midfield. The All Blacks retain their dual playmaker roles with Beauden Barrett starting at fullback and Richie Mo'unga at first-five.
"Our aim is to win the next two pool matches against Canada and Namibia, as well as continuing to grow our game and manage the workload across the group. With two games four days apart, it's obvious that we need to use our whole squad," said Hansen.
"Whilst there's a huge amount of energy and excitement amongst the whole team about what lies ahead, this week there has been a real focus on ourselves and our own standards.
"We've been working hard. We know we have to keep growing our game. We've always been demanding of ourselves when it comes to continued improvement, and that will never change. By doing so, it allows us to have the right attitude, intent and execution.
