There’ll be Kiwis players galore when the Tigers come to town to take on the Warriors this Saturday night (7.30pm) in Auckland.

While there’ll be Kiwi touches around Mt Smart stadium the most visible demonstration will be on the field.

In the first eight rounds, the Vodafone Warriors fielded 16 New Zealanders and the Tigers won’t be lacking in Kiwi talent either. Tigers co-captains Russell Packer, Elijah Taylor and former Kiwis captain Benji Marshall are just a few of the Kiwi players coming to New Zealand for round nine of the NRL.

Watch out for the Kiwis players who could be in contention for a spot in the squad that takes on England in Denver later next month.
