The All Blacks have gambled on injured Richie McCaw being fit for their showdown Test against the Springboks early next month, and named the talismanic skipper in the 28-man touring squad.

The team named Friday to travel to Argentina and South Africa for their remaining two Rugby Championship Tests also includes a recall for 71-Test veteran scrumhalf Piri Weepu.
