Following a strong Super 14 campaign for the Crusaders George Whitelock was given a glowing endorsement by the injured All Blacks captain Richie McCaw. The combative openside flanker was sure enough drafted into the All Blacks squad following an injury to Adam Thomson and made his Test debut off the bench against Italy in 2009 where he managed to score a try.
