Ardie Savea (centre) is expected to become the starter after a superb performance against the Springboks including scoring a last-gasp try to help win the test. Sam Cane's season is finished after suffering a neck fracture in Pretoria. "It is expected he will make a full recovery and be back playing,'' Hansen added. Cane's absence from the end-of-year tour will test Hansen's depth in the No 7 jersey. Hansen said a large group of players would head to London after the Wallabies test, and the remainder stay behind to prepare for the Japan match.
