New Zealand have named five debutants in their 23-man squad ahead of an upcoming Test against Australia and tour of England.

Premiership-winning Sydney centre Joseph Manu, Melbourne Storm duo Brandon Smith and Jahrome Hughes, Warriors forward Isaiah Papal’i and Penrith enforcer Corey Harawira-Naera are the new faces in the side, who will be missing some big names due to injury.

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Tohu Harris and Issac Luke have all been left out of the squad with injury concerns.

The Kiwis face off against Australia on October 13, before playing England in Hull, Liverpool and Leeds on October 27, November 4 and November 10 respectively.

  1. Great to see more Roosters being chosen from their premiership winning team, 3 Kiwis, 3 Aussies and 2 Tongans= 8 internationals. πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“

  2. Would’ve love to see Benji Marshall in over Kodi Nikorima. And Nelson Asofa-Solomona over Isaiah Papal’i. Johnson and Benji would be gold. Plus if needed he could play that utility role off the bench like he did at the broncos.
