Kieran Foran and Peta Hiku have been named in New Zealand’s side to take on the Kangaroos in Saturday’s Four Nations final.

Hooker Thomas Leuluai has been ruled after the utility sustained a shoulder injury – as well as a badly gashed face – during his last outing in Dunedin.

Otherwise, Kiwis coach Stephen Kearney has stuck to the same team that held out the English, taking the precaution of naming back Gerard Beale and forward Bodene Thompson as 18th and 19th men.

Several others emerged from the weekend with injury concerns, but Tohu Harris (shoulder), Dean Whare (foot) and Jason Nightingale (face) are all expected to line up as named.
