The NZ Kiwis have made two changes to the side to face Australia in their second outing of the Four Nations tournament at Coventry on Saturday.

Both Kiwi Jason Nightingale (ankle) and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves (knee) have been ruled out, with injuries sustained in the opening 17-16 win over England.

Replacing them are premiership-winning Cronulla Shark Gerard Beale on the wing and Canterbury Bulldog veteran Greg Eastwood on the bench, with Adam Blair promoted to the starting lineup.

The three Panthers in the Kiwis squad - Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, Te Maire Martin and James Fisher-Harris - have again been overlooked.
