Issac Luke has starred for the New Zealand Kiwis in his final international appearance as a Rabbitoh.

The Kiwis defeated Super League champions, Leeds Rhinos, 34 points to 16, at Headingley Carnegie this morning Sydney time in a warm up for the New Zealanders’ upcoming three-Test series against England, featuring South Sydney giant, Englishman Thomas Burgess.

Luke, who officially completes his contract with the Rabbitohs at the end of the month, finishes his time in the red and green as the second-most capped international whilst playing for the Rabbitohs.

 

Luke played 33 Tests for the Kiwis whilst with Souths, finishing behind only arguably the greatest Rabbitoh of all time, Clive Churchill, who played 37 Test matches for Australia whilst playing for South Sydney.
