    Kiwis coach Michael Maguire will field a new halves pairing for this weekend's Pacific Nations test against Tonga at Mount Smart Stadium

    Kiwis coach Michael Maguire will field a new halves pairing for this weekend's Pacific Nations test against Tonga at Mount Smart Stadium


    Maguire's named his 19-man squad, headlined by the returns of Benji Marshall and Kieran Foran, who have been absent for seven and two years respectively.

    Shaun Johnson's also been named, while Kodi Nikorima was unavailable due to a strained groin.

    Maguire says at this stage, the pairing is likely to be Johnson and Marshall.

    He says he has plenty of decision to make with Foran coming in as well.

    Jahrome Hughes, Briton Nikora and Zane Tetevano could all potentially make their debuts.
