Fien Into Kiwis Line Up
Warriors hooker Nathan Fien will make his Kiwis debut this Saturday.
Fien has been called up by coach Brian McClennan to take a place on the bench for Saturday?s clash with the Kangaroos at Melbourne?s Telstra Dome after Dene Halatau was ruled out with a shoulder injury.
Jerome Ropati will take Halatau?s spot at hooker in the starting line-up.
Fien ? who was officially added to the Kiwis Tri-Nations squad earlier this week - has made an incredible recovery from a back injury under the guidance of Kiwis physiotherapist Michelle Booth and Doctor Simon Mayhew.
Halatau injured his shoulder in the opening game of the Gillette Tri-Nations series against the Kangaroos at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland last week.
