NZ rule out Webb and Leuluai

British based Thomas Leuluai and Brent Webb will not be selected for New Zealand‘s test match against Australia next week.

Wigan half back Leuluai and Leeds full back Webb flew out for last season’s Trans-Tasman test despite objections from their Super League clubs.

However, Kiwis coach Stephen Kearney has told them to remain at their clubs, but says it will not affect their chances of selection for the end of season Four Nations tournament.

Meanwhile, Roy Asotasi and Jeremy Smith are favourites to replace Nathan Cayless as captain of the Kiwis after Cayless announced his international retirement last week.
