Rabbitohs hooker, Issac Luke, has today been named in the New Zealand team to take on England in Dundedin this Saturday.

Luke will play his 31st Test for the Kiwis when he steps out against an England side that boasts Rabbitohs teammates, George and Thomas Burgess.

Coach Stephen Kearney has remained loyal to the side that toppled in the tournament's opening round.

New Zealand currently lead the competition with two wins, but a loss to England and an Australian victory over Samoa next weekend would see a three-way tie for the two spots in the Wellington final on November 15. The finalists would then be determined by a points-difference countback.

Comgratulations to Issac on his selection.

1. Peta Hiku

2. Jason Nightingale

3. Shaun Kenny-Dowall 

4. Dean Whare

5. Manu Vatuvei

6. Kieran Foran

7. Shaun Johnson

8. Jesse Bromwich

9. Issac Luke

10. Adam Blair
