Watch New Zealand vs Great Britain rugby league test match live and free


Great Britain or England call them what you like. They're yet to win a game and now have a rematch with the Kiwis. Can they win a match?

Alright, now before anybody jumps down our throats. We know the touring team is the Great Britain Lions. But every single player bar three are born in England. Of those other three they're all Australian.

If you want to get really technical you can claim Australian Lachlan Coote as Scottish as he has represented Scotland previously. The Lions squad might also prefer to be playing as England because representing Great Britain for the first time in 12 years has resulted in nothing but losses.

New Zealand scraped out a win when the two met last Saturday, 12-8. While the scoreline was close Great Britain will find it more difficult this weekend. The Kiwis lost star five-eighth Kieran Foran to injury just five minutes in.

Great Britain looked destined to level the scores with three minutes to go. Winger Jermaine McGillvary dived for the corner but Kenny Bromwich managed to force the ball loose with a superb tackle.

When is New Zealand vs Great Britain?

New Zealand vs Great Britain will kick off at 6pm AEDT at Christchurch Stadium. Fiji and PNG will act as a curtain raiser for this match at 3:20pm AEDT.

New Zealand vs Great Britain test line-ups

Cronulla Sharks five-eighth Shaun Johnson was dropped for last week's game but is now recalled due to Kieran Foran's bung shoulder. It's the only named change by coach Michael Maguire though he did make several changes to the listed line-up last week.

Wayne Bennett has handed Jack Hughes his debut at centre. Hughes takes Ryan Hall's spot, who's out with a bad knee, so Zac Hardaker has been shuffled to the wing.
