New Zealand's captain Benji Marshall is one of four players added to the national train-on squad to prepare for the Kiwis Test and Four Nations rugby league tour in October-November.

Marshall comes into the squad after the Warriors eliminated the Wests Tigers a week ago.

St George Illawarra winger Jason Nightingale and halfback-hooker Nathan Fien have been added following the Dragons loss to Brisbane in their semi-final and also joining the squad is Newcastle centre Junior Sau.

New Zealand warm up against the Cook Islands in Rarotonga on October 6th in Rarotonga.

The Kiwis then play Australia on October 16th in Newcastle, before opening their Four Nations campaign - also against the Kangaroos - on October 28th at Warrington in England.
