4 changes to All Blacks' starting line for Springboks test

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) Fiji-born winger Waisake Naholo will make his latest injury comeback among four changes to New Zealand's starting lineup for Saturday's Rugby Championship test against South Africa in Durban.

Naholo has been sidelined for six weeks with a hamstring strain which continued an injury-hampered start to his international career. He has played only seven tests since suffering a broken leg on test debut against Argentina last July and incurred another fracture on his return to Super Rugby.

Naholo takes over from Julian Savea on the left wing in the only change to the All Blacks' starting backline after last weekend's 31-17 win over Argentina.

There are three changes to the forward pack where Jerome Kaino returns from a shoulder injury to claim back the No. 6 jersey from Liam Squire.
