All Blacks newbies Shannon Frizell and Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi got stuck into their first training session with their new teammates, as the side hit the field in Auckland this morning.
Highlanders loose forward Frizell, 24, and Chiefs halfback Tahuriorangi, 23, were two of three new faces in Steve Hansen's 33-man squad for next month's series against France.
Frizell is expected to fill in for the likes of the injured Kieran Read and overseas bound Jerome Kaino for the series, while Tahuriorangi will act as third halfback behind Aaron Smith and TJ Perenara.
