Panthers trio named in Kiwis squad

Panthers forwards Moses Leota and Scott Sorensen have been named in the New Zealand squad, alongside club teammate James Fisher-Harris, for the Kiwis’ Test match against Tonga at Mt Smart Stadium on Saturday 25 June.

Born in Auckland, Leota has selected to represent New Zealand in the mid-year Test, making himself solely eligible for the Kiwis in the 2022 Rugby League World.

The 26-year-old forward, who made his international debut for Samoa in 2019, has been rewarded with selection in the New Zealand side following an impressive start to the season for the Panthers.

29-year-old premiership winner Sorensen is also inline to make his Kiwis debut in the historic test.

Meanwhile, Kiwis enforcer Fisher-Harris will run out for his seventh Test match for New Zealand, to go with his two appearances for the Maori All Stars.
