The Kiwis have been hard at work this week preparing for tomorrow's decider against England at Wigan's DW Stadium.  As part of their prep, a training session was set up at a renowned football (soccer) club, the Liverpool FC facility in Melwood.

Liverpool players were impressed by an impromptu haka from the Kiwis squad inside the clubrooms. 

For the third test, Kiwis coach Stephen Kearney has named his line-up to face-off with England.  The series is currently levelled at 1-all following last weekend's win for the Kiwis.

The main change for this game will see Gerard Beale replace Tuimoala Lolohea, as well as Kodi Nikorima who will run on in the No.7.

Kearney says, "These lads got the job done last week and it was a good performance from them."  He added, “I didn’t feel there was a need to change the team.”

The NZ v ENG match will be shown live for New Zealand viewers on SKY Sport 2 on Sunday at 1:45am NZDT.
