Wiki breaks jaw

Kiwi captain Ruben Wiki has been sidelined out of the final match in the Tri-Nations series against Great Britain this weekend because of a jaw injury.

Wiki suffered the injury in last Friday's match against France, and medical staff waited until the swelling went down, before confirming the fracture.

Ali Lauitiiti comes off the bench in place of Wiki, with Alex Chan has been added to the 18 for the match.

Dene Halatau earns his second test cap at hooker, with Louis Anderson moving to lock in place of the injured Sonny Bill Williams.

Wairangi Koopu comes onto the bench to replace David Kidwell.

There is an unchanged backline with halfback Thomas Leuluai passing a fitness test.
