Levi, Martin to tackle Fiji

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

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.
