New Zealand coach Michael Maguire has brought uncapped back-row forward Isaiah Papali'i into a 20-man squad for the third Test against England at Elland Road on Sunday.

The 20-year-old New Zealand Warrior played for Samoa against Tonga earlier this year but is set to win his first cap for the Kiwis in place of Marty Taupau, who is dropped after appearing in the first two Tests.

Maguire will not confirm his line-up until 90 minutes before kick-off but utility back Gerard Beale and Brisbane winger Jamayne Isaako are vying to replace Jordan Rapana, who has flown back to Australia after dislocating a shoulder in the Kiwis' 20-14 defeat at Anfield last Sunday.
