Newcastle hooker and Wellington product Danny Levi will make his first run-on start for the Kiwis in front of his home crowd this Saturday against Fiji in the World Cup quarter-finals.

Coach David Kidwell has made another switch-up in the halves, with Te Maire Martin returned to the starting side and Kodi Nikorima set for more of a utility role against the Bati and Thomas Leuluai missing out.

Tonga made history as the first tier-two nation to beat a top three international side, downing the Kiwis 28-22 to top Pool B at the Rugby League World Cup.

New Zealand side to face Fiji:

1 Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, 2 Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, 3 Dean Whare, 4 Brad Takairangi, 5 Jordan Rapana, 6 Te Maire Martin, 7 Shaun Johnson, 8 Martin Taupau, 9 Danny Levi, 10 Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, 11 Simon Mannering, 12 Joseph Tapine, 13 Adam Blair, 14 Nelson Asofa-Solomona, 15 Russell Packer, 16 Isaac Liu, 17 Kodi Nikorima, 18 Kenny Bromwich, 19 Jason Nightingale, 20 Peta Hiku, 21 Addin Fonua-Blake
