Iro and Nikau take over as Kiwi selectors

11:25 am on 23 March 2010

Assistant Kiwi rugby league coach Tony Iro and former international Tawera Nikau have been confirmed as national selectors for the next two years.

They join incumbent selector and Kiwi coach Stephen Kearney while Howie Tamati remains as convener.

Iro and Nikau come onto the panel for former Kiwis Tony Kemp and Darrell Williams, who were required to resign after their two-year term as selectors.

The first task for the selection panel will be picking the Kiwi squad for the 2010 Anzac Test against the Kangaroos in Melbourne in early May.
