England and Kiwi's to wear one off jerseys

6:15 am on 8 November 2009

The New Zealand and England rugby league teams will both wear one-off jerseys featuring poppies to mark Remembrance Day for their Four Nations clash in Huddersfield this morning.

The Kiwi players were presented with their jerseys at their traditional Test dinner at their Leeds hotel last night.

Tonight's clash will have added significance for six of the Kiwis' line-up. Lance Hohaia, Sam Perrett, Thomas Leuluai, Fuifui Moimoi and Frank Pritchard were all in the side that lost 14-20 to Great Britain at the same ground in the first Test of the 2007 series.

Lima was in the touring party but didn't play in that match.

Perrett was at fullback for his Test debut that night while Hohaia and Leuluai were in the halves.

Moimoi started in the front row and Pritchard in the second row, as they will again tonight.
