Australia and New Zealand name 19-man squads for Ladbrokes Four Nations Final

Australia and New Zealand have named their 19-man squads ahead of the Four Nations Final at Anfield on Sunday.

Australia have made just one chance to the 19 selected against England at the London Stadium on Sunday 13 November.

Sam Thaiday misses out on the Final after his facial injury against England and has been replaced by Manly prop Jake Trbojevic.

New Zealand coach David Kidwell has made a number of changes to the team that drew 18-18 with Scotland in round three. 

A host of stars return to the Kiwis’ 19-man squad including forward Kevin Proctor, joint top try scorer Jordan Rapana and Dally M medal winner Jason Taumalolo. Thomas Leuluai drops out of the New Zealand team after the jaw injury sustained against Scotland.

Thaiday is a huge loss for the Kangaroos forward pack

Rapana returns and will be eager to add more tries to his tally
