NZ Kiwis coach Stephen Kearney has added experience to his interchange for their crucial Four Nations encounter with England at Dunedin's Forsyth Barr on Saturday.

Apart from those tweaks, Kearney has remained loyal to the side that toppled world champions Australia in the tournament's opening round. Since then, Manu Vatuvei has assumed a place on the wing and Issac Luke has returned from suspension to the starting hooker's role.

New Zealand currently lead the competition with two wins, but a loss to England and an Australian victory over Samoa next weekend would see a three-way tie for the two spots in the Wellington final on November 15.

The finalists would then be determined by a points-difference countback.

The NZ Kiwis side to face England in Dunedin on Saturday are:

1-Peta Hiku

2-Jason Nightingale

3-Shaun Kenny-Dowall

4-Dean Whare

5-Manu Vatuvei

6-Kieran Foran

7-Shaun Johnson

8-Jesse Bromwich

9-Issac Luke

10-Adam Blair

11-Simon Mannering (captain)

12-Kevin Proctor

13-Jason Taumalolo

14-Thomas Leuluai

15-Greg Eastwood

16-Martin Taupau

17-Tohu Harris

18-Lewis Brown
