    From the DT

    NEW Zealand have suffered a major blow on the eve of the historic Denver Test match against England, with a number of key players ruled unavailable for the clash.

    The New Zealand Herald are reporting that halfback Shaun Johnson, fullback Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, second-rower Tohu Harris and outside back Gerard Beale will all miss the inaugural clash in the US for varying reasons.

    It is believed that Johnson and Beale will bypass the clash due to recently returning from injuries, while Harris and Tuivasa-Sheck are said to be placing club before country.

    More to come...

    From NRL.com

    George Burgess has picked up an injury and will be unable to travel to Denver with the England squad when they take on New Zealand on Saturday, June 23.

    Experienced Hull FC prop Scott Taylor has been called up as a replacement for Burgess and will fly out with the squad

    Can't understand not wanting to play for your country, isn't that the ultimate aim for players and with that comes the bonuses such as greater income, something wrong in camp NZ?
