Jordan won a call up based on strong form for the Crusaders this season and a spectacular match-winning try in the North vs South clash in Wellington on Saturday.

The All Blacks are tentatively scheduled to play Australia in test matches next month and possibly the southern hemisphere’s Rugby Championship, also involving South Africa and Argentina, in a November-December window.
