Despite a season-ending loss to the Lions at the weekend, the Highlanders are celebrating success, having 7 players selected in the latest All Blacks squad.

All Blacks head coach Steve Hansen named his side for the upcoming rugby championship, with the now expected contingent of Highlanders making the cut.

He says he and his fellow selectors are very happy with the squad and combinations they had come up with.

The newly named side will assemble later this week for a two-day camp on Auckland's North Shore minus the five Hurricanes who will play in this weekend's Super Rugby Final.
