New Zealand unchanged for third Test against England
Last Updated: 12/11/15 1:36pm
New Zealand have named an unchanged team for the third and deciding Test against England at the DW Stadium in Wigan on Saturday.
Utility player Kodi Nikorima, who was a late introduction at scrum-half for last Saturday's second Test at the Olympic Stadium in London, keeps his place after playing a key role in the Kiwis' 9-2 victory.
"These lads got the job done last week and it was a good performance from them," said coach Stephen Kearney. "I didn't feel there was a need to change the team."
Kearney, who has been in charge of the Kiwis since 2008, is now the most successful coach in New Zealand history, last weekend's win taking him past the previous record of 22 victories enjoyed by Frank Endacott from 1995-2000.
New Zealand: 1 R Tuivasa-Sheck, 2 J Nightingale, 3 J Kahu, 4 D Whare, 5 S Kenny-Dowall, 6 P Hiku, 7 K Nikorima; 8 J Bromwich, 9 I Luke (c), 10 S Moa, 11 K Proctor, 12 T Harris, 13 A Blair.
Interchange (from): M Taupau, B Matulino, A Glenn, L Brown, I Liu, G Beale.
