The Kiwis will assemble in Auckland this weekend with the first test against the Kangaroos at Mount Smart Stadium on Saturday, 13 October, followed by a three-Test series against England with games in Hull, Liverpool and Leeds.
The Kangaroos players will earn four times more than the Kiwis in October’s test between the two nations at Mt Smart Stadium.
Each member of Mal Meninga’s Australian team will pick up $20,000 for the Trans-Tasman clash on October 13, but the New Zealand players will earn $5000.
Previously when the two teams met in the Anzac test, the NRL would subsidise the New Zealand players, giving them an extra $15,000 so they’d earn the same as the Kangaroos players.
THE Kangaroos have named their squad for the Test against New Zealand and Tonga, with Latrell Mitchell beating Will Chambers to a centre berth.
Tickets for the triple header are from $35 for adults and $15 for children.
