Canterbury midfielder Rob Thompson (Ngāti Kahungunu) has been selected for the the Māori All Blacks squad to tour Chicago and the United Kingdom.

Head Coach Colin Cooper said that an injury to Declan O’Donnell opened the door for Thompson who will run out for Canterbury in this weekend’s Mitre 10 Cup Finals.

"We’ve been impressed with Rob’s form in Mitre 10 Cup and we think he will slot right into the team environment."

The squad assembles in Auckland today before they fly out on Sunday.
