The wardrobe malfunction which affected All Black Sonny Bill Williams at the 2011 World Cup - a ripped jersey which forced him to change mid-pitch - is unlikely to happen from next weekend when the team wear their new strip which manufacturer adidas say is the "strongest we have ever produced".

The All Blacks, on a world record winning streak of 18 victories in a row, will take on Ireland at Chicago's Soldier Field wearing the new jersey which has been two years in the making. All Blacks captain Kieran Read was part of the testing process, along with teammates Owen Franks and Malakai Fekitoa. The jersey will be officially launched at a function in Auckland this morning.
