Hoeata to make debut for NZ against Fiji

Jarrad Hoeata has been named to make his test debut and locking partner Ali Williams will play his first test in more than two years in the All Blacks team which will meet Fiji in a one-off test on Friday.
Hoeata was named on Tuesday in a weakened New Zealand lineup for the match at Carisbrook, joining 61-test veteran Williams who has battled injury since playing his last test against England in December 2008.
Colin Slade will make his first starting appearance for New Zealand at flyhalf while superstar Daniel Carter has been named on the bench. Slade made his only previous All Blacks appearance from the bench against Australia in Melbourne last year.
