3 changes to All Blacks for Tokyo test

New Zealand has made three changes to the team which beat Australia 33-16 in Wellington last month for the Bledisloe Cup rugby test Saturday at Japan's National Olympic Stadium.
Winger Sitiveni Sivivatu and center Conrad Smith both return from injuries to reclaim their places in the All Blacks' backline while veteran No. 8 Rodney So'oialo has displaced young rival Kieran Read in the New Zealand pack in the team named Wednesday.
Read will start from the reserves bench along with recalled hooker Corey Flynn and uncapped utility back Tamati Ellison.
