Levi, Martin to tackle Fiji
NEW Zealand have made two notable changes for their Rugby League World Cup quarter- final against Fiji.
Saturday’s clash at Westpac Stadium will be the first in the starting line- up for hooker Danny Levi.
The Newcastle Knights hooker earned a promotion in place of the dropped Thomas Leuluai, who missed out on the 21 altogether.
Levi has played his three Tests from the bench since his debut in the Kiwis’ opening World Cup match.
“In the last three games, from what we have seen, he thoroughly deserves that starting spot,” coach David Kidwell said yesterday.
Te Maire Martin has been recalled in the No. 6 jersey to partner Shaun Johnson.
