Kiwis unchanged for decider

New Zealand have named an unchanged team for the decisive third Test against England on Saturday.

It means 21 year-old Kodi Nikorima keeps his place at scrum-half after impressing during last week’s 9-2 victory at the Olympic Stadium.

Head coach Stephen Kearney, said via the Daily Mail: “These lads got the job done last week and it was a good performance from them.

“I didn’t feel there was a need to change the team.”

Last weekend’s victory levelled the three-match series at 1-1 ahead of this Saturday’s decider, that will be played at a sold-out DW Stadium.

New Zealand team to face England:

R Tuivasa-Sheck (Sydney Roosters); J Nightingale (St George Illawarra), J Kahu (Brisbane), D Whare (Penrith), S Kenny-Dowall (Sydney Roosters); P Hiku (Manly), K Nikorima (Brisbane); J Bromwich (Melbourne), I Luke (South Sydney, capt), S Moa (Sydney Roosters), K Proctor (Melbourne), T Harris (Melbourne), A Blair (Brisbane).

Subs (from): M Taupau (Wests Tigers), B Matulino (NZ Warriors), A Glenn (Brisbane), L Brown (Penrith), I Liu (Sydney Roosters), G Beale (Cronulla).
