New Zealand and England have finalised their squads for Saturday's (Sunday AEDT) Four Nations clash. Jordan Rapana will make his second appearance for the Kiwis, while Josh Hodgson and Elliott Whitehead will once again line-up for England. 

England coach Wayne Bennett has made four changes to his side. Centre Mark Percival and prop Scott Taylor, who made their Test debuts against France in Avignon last Saturday, are the notable omissions from the team that won 40-6 in Bennett's first match in charge.

Also discarded from that team are five-eighth Kevin Brown and utility Stefan Ratchford, who were on the bench at Parc des Sports.

The remaining 13 are joined by new skipper Sam Burgess, who was suspended for the France game, and Super League Grand Finalists Dan Sarginson, Chris Hill, John Bateman, Liam Farrell and George Williams.

Sunday, October 30 (12:30am): England v New Zealand, The John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield. Live on 9Gem.
