Hurricanes lock Jeremy Thrush has been called into the second All Blacks wider training group camp in Mt Maunganui tomorrow.

He replaces 77-test All Black Ali Williams who on Friday announced he was standing down from international rugby.

Thrush will join the 37 other players named in the training group earlier this month, including Hosea Gear, Andrew Hore, Ma'a Nonu, Aaron Smith, Ben Smith and Tony Woodcock who all missed the first camp due to the Highlanders' tour of South Africa and Australia.

The All Blacks selectors - head coach Steven Hansen, assistant coach Ian Foster and selector Grant Fox - are due to announce their first squad for 2013 next Sunday, ahead of the three-match series against France.
