Jerome Kaino has rejoined the All Blacks squad.
The flanker, who was given an absence of leave last month to deal with personal issues, has been training with the squad in Auckland ahead of this weekend's Rugby Championship match against South Africa.
Kaino was one of the first players out on the training paddock for warm ups.
His return is intriguing given the fact that Vaea Fifita did not take any part in the warm up, days after starring in the win over Argentina.
Winger Waisake Naholo was back training after being ruled out last week with concussion.
