Wayne Bennett has named his side to take on Australia in Monday morning's Four Nations clash (1am ADST). 11.30pm Sunday night here (QT).

James Graham has been named in the side after missing England's clash with Scotland due to a knee complaint, and replaces Hull FC's Scott Taylor.

Widdop is also back in the side after being dropped by Bennett after England's loss to the Kiwis.

Widdop on his day - with the right support - is very good. He is not a great initiator.

Has good defence tho - which Benny would like.

Apart from being outplayed it looks like the Poms were more interested in physical altercation at the end.

Interesting. Sammy is out and Boyd in. Sammy has had surgery from the Graham knock - similar to the other Sam in the GF.

The Roos are putting in a better effort than the yawnion wobblies.
The Scotties were the much better side and were unlucky not to take the win.
The main difference being that the scotties ran a great backline game while the wobblies didn't give their backline room to move when they did get the ball.
The Wobblies could use a little or a lot of help from the Roos on how to run a backline.

New Zealand coach David Kidwell has decided who will partner Shaun Johnson in the halves for the Four Nations Final against Australia but refused to reveal who.

Veteran playmaker Thomas Leuluai suffered a broken jaw in New Zealand's last start 18-all draw with Scotland leaving Kidwell with a huge vacancy to fill.

Not keen to give the Kangaroos a leg up when it came to disclosing his halves pairing, it is widely believed either back-rower Tohu Harris or 21-year-old rookie Te Maire Martin will don the No. 6 jumper.
