All Blacks coach Ian Foster predicts a "fast and furious" opening Bledisloe Cup clash with the Wallabies, opting for Richie Mo'unga as his No.10.
Foster has found space for star rivals Beauden and Jordie Barrett in his New Zealand side, which faces Australia at Wellington's Sky Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
There are a host of fresh faces on the park, on the bench and in the coaching roles for the two sides first hit-out since last year's World Cup.
The All Blacks have named three debutants against Australia for the first time in 40 years; lock Tupou Vaa'i, loose forward Hoskins Sotutu and winger Caleb Clarke on the bench.
Foster has been with the All Blacks for almost a decade but he too will be making a debut as senior coach.
New Zealand will be fielding a new-look backline with Mo'unga at 10, pushing Beauden Barrett to fullback.
"Two highly influential players for us ... two fantastic decision-makers we wanted to have on the park," Foster said.
Foster acknowledged Jordie had enjoyed a better Super Rugby season than Beauden as the 15, but he was eager to slot all his stars into the team.
"Probably the form 15 in the country is Jordie. But you'll find them all in the back field anyway," he said.
"It might be the best of both worlds."
Jordie said it "was nice of Fozz" to recognise his form with the Hurricanes, but he wasn't about to start a turf war for his spot.
"Any opportunity to start for the All Blacks is massive," he said.
"I'm not going to fight over it with my brother ... he's got the opportunity and I'm looking at things I can do on the wing."
The pair are set for an old-fashioned kick-off at training on Friday to decide who kicks against the Wallabies.
With Australia blooding four rookies in their 23, the All Blacks boast a considerable experience advantage, but Foster said the Wallabies would carry confidence and verve.
"We're expecting a fast and mobile Wallabies team," he said.
"Super Rugby over there probably started a little bit rusty but by the end was what we'd expect out of the top Australian teams.
"Good quality rugby and I really felt that they reached the levels that'd be pretty happy with.
"They'll be pretty confident with their preparation. We know they want to play with the ball.
"I can't see them shutting up shop and just playing a percentage game ... it's going to be a fast and furious game."
