Four Nations: Leuluai and Eastwood back in New Zealand squad

Former Super League duo Thomas Leuluai and Greg Eastwood have been recalled to the New Zealand team for Saturday’s crunch Four Nations clash with England.

Coach Stephen Kearney has opted for experience on the bench by selecting the duo over Lewis Brown and Suaia Matagi respectively. Former Wigan star Leuluai will back-up first-choice hooker Issac Luke, while ex Leeds back-rower Greg Eastwood will add some firepower across the park.
