The All Blacks are preparing for their first international match of the year against France next week. The squad are in Christchurch and while the players may be juggling preparations for both super rugby and international duty, All Black's utility back Damian McKenzie isn't complaining about the clashes.

“It's ok. Like I've said we've parked that and our main focus is here for the next few days and we're working on what we need to touch up on for the tests that are coming up in June.”

The international test will take place at Auckland's Eden Park next Saturday.
