Panthers forward James Fisher-Harris has been named in the 16-man New Zealand Kiwis squad for the World Cup Nines at Bankwest Stadium on 18-19 October.
The New Zealand World Cup Nines squad assembles in Sydney on Monday.
Following the Nines, the Kiwis switch to Test football with an Oceania Cup clash against the Kangaroos in Wollongong on Friday 25 October before flying to New Zealand for two Tests against the Great Britain Rugby League Lions.
The first of these will be the second match of an international triple-header at Auckland’s Eden Park on Saturday 2 November, which also features the Kangaroos facing Mate Ma’a Tonga and Toa Samoa taking on Fiji Bati.
The Kiwis then move to Christchurch for the second Test at Orangetheory Stadium (formerly AMI Stadium) on Saturday 9 November.
