Roger Tuivasa-Sheck 'not a serious consideration' for All Blacks yet - Foster

All Blacks coach Ian Foster insists Roger Tuivasa-Sheck isn't a "serious consideration" for his end of year tour squad, after his switch from rugby league and the NZ Warriors.

Tuivasa-Sheck has returned to New Zealand and will play the upcoming NPC with Auckland on his return to the 15-man code.

Boasting experience as an NRL winner with Sydney Roosters and 20 tests for the New Zealand Kiwis, speculation has already turned towards if Tuivasa-Sheck steps into the All Blacks' reckoning.

With the All Blacks to begin their Bledisloe Cup campaign against Australia on Saturday and their Rugby Championship against Argentina on September 11th, the earliest Tuivasa-Sheck would conceivably make the squad would be this year's end of year tour.

But with the All Blacks already possessing healthy numbers in the outside backs, coach Foster says that there's no immediate plans to bring Tuivasa-Sheck into his squad.

The All Blacks play the Wallabies at 7.05pm Saturday.
