Vodafone Warriors utility Ben Henry has today been named to make his debut as the Kiwis’ starting hooker in Friday night’s Anzac Test against the Kangaroos at Allianz Stadium in Sydney.

Also making his debut will be specialist hooker Siliva Havili. He has been named on the bench.

Henry has been used in the centres and back row for the Vodafone Warriors in their last two NRL matches; after making his first-grade debut against Canterbury-Bankstown, Havili has made three appearances from the bench operating as a back rower for all but a few minutes.

Simon Mannering will again lead the Kiwis in his 36th Test appearance while the fourth Vodafone Warrior involved is halfback Shaun Johnson, who’ll combine in the halves with former Vodafone Warrior Isaac John (Penrith).

The other debutants will be Peta Hiku (Manly) at fullback and interchange prop Martin Taupau (Wests Tigers).
