While the squad remains largely the same as the outfit that overcame a stubborn Fiji in the quarter-finals, Maguire has elected to make a couple of changes.
Scott Sorensen and Jeremy Marshall-King have been dropped from the reserves in lieu of Penrith premiership forward Moses Leota and try-scoring talent Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, although the squad has been named in alphabetical order.
Both Leota and Watene-Zelezniak have been unable to contribute to the World Cup campaign since the Kiwis faced Jamaica, with both being sidelined through injury.
He has missed three games this tournament due to suspension and is reportedly nursing a hamstring injury.
