Three Barrett brothers start for New Zealand

Scott, Jordie and Beauden Barrett are the second trio of brothers to start in a World Cup match after the Tongan Vunipola brothers in 1995.

TOKYO, 30 Sep - Scott, Jordie and Beauden Barrett will become the first trio of brothers to start for New Zealand when the All Blacks take on Canada in their Pool B match at Oita Stadium on Wednesday. They are only the second trio of brothers to start in a World Cup match after the Tongan Vunipola brothers achieved the feat in 1995. 

Full-back Beauden Barrett, pictured, retains his place, as do his brother Scott in the second row, fly-half Richie Mo'unga and captain Kieran Read, the number eight, as coach Steve Hansen makes 11 changes to the starting XV who beat South Africa in their World Cup opener and names a revamped front row.

Read and inside-centre Sonny Bill Williams are the only two starters in Wednesday's squad who also began against Canada the last time the teams met, at Rugby World Cup 2011.

Rieko Ioane is recalled and handed a chance to shine on the All Blacks left wing. At 22 years and 197 days when he appears against the Canucks, Ioane is the youngest member of the All Blacks squad.
