Kiwis name team for second Test

New Zealand have added experience to their bench for their must-win second Test against England in London.

Test rookies Kodi Nikorima and Sio Siua Taukeiaho will make way for Lewis Brown and Alex Glenn for the match, which follows the Kiwis' 26-12 loss to England in Hull in the series opener.

"Both these guys we're bringing in were a bit unlucky to miss out the week before and offer a great deal of experience," New Zealand coach Stephen Kearney said.

"Looking at last week's game, that will be important for us this week.

"Lewis has done a great job for us in the past and Alex Glenn has had a wonderful year, so it's just desserts for them.

"We're in a position where we have to perform and these guys have done it for us before."
