11:05 am on 29 November 2011

The New Zealand women's rugby coach Grant Hansen has made a number of changes to his side for the second Test against England at Esher tomorrow morning.

Hooker Fiao'o Faamausili and captain Victoria Grant are unavailable after suffering injuries in their 10-nil loss in the first test at Twickenham on Sunday.

Casey Robertson steps into the captaincy and the number 8 jersey, while Karina Penetito starts at hooker.

Lock Kelani Matapo, loosie Lydia Crossman, wing Katarina Whata, and reserve forward Muteremoana Aiatu are all set to make their debuts.
