Leuluai on New Zealand bench
Harlequins scrum-half Thomas Leuluai will be on the bench for New Zealand in Friday's Test against Australia in Brisbane.
Leuluai, who became the second youngest player to represent New Zealand when he made his debut at age 18 in 2003, has been recalled after missing last year's Tri-Nations Series with a broken ankle.
He flew out to Brisbane following Harlequins' 22-16 Super League win over Huddersfield on Saturday.
Coach Brian McClennan has chosen Benji Marshall in his starting line-up ahead of Leuluai despite still recuperating from a dislocated shoulder.
St Helens prop Jason Cayless, the only other Super League-based Kiwi in the squad, has been preferred to brother Nathan in a side that includes two debutants in Brisbane winger Tame Tupou and South Sydney back rower David Fa'alogo.
Australia have called up Manly prop Brent Kite as 18th man following the promotion of Brisbane's Karmichael Hunt to the starting line-up at full-back as a replacement for the injured Anthony Minichiello.
New Zealand-born Hunt, 19, will become the 29th Australian international player to have been born overseas.
New Zealand: B Webb (NZ Warriors); J Webster (Melbourne), C Toopi (NS Warriors), P Whatuira (Wests Tigers), T Tupou (Brisbane), N Vagana (Cronulla), B Marshall (Wests Tigers); J Cayless (St Helens), D Faiumu (North Queensland), R Wiki (NZ Warriors, capt), D Kidwell (Melbourne), L Anderson (NZ Warriors), S B Williams (Canterbury).

Meanwhile Wakefield have completed the signing of Bradford centre Ryan Atkins, 20, after a successful loan spell and are involved in negotiations for his Bulls team-mate Adam Watene.
