NZ TRAIN-ON | Beale-Feki named
Sharks Sosaia Feki and Gerard Beale have been named in the New Zealand train-on squad for the tour of the UK in October-November.
The selections are reward for what were consistent seasons for the two Sharks outside backs.
Both were in the Kiwi squad that was successful in winning the Four Nations at the back end of 2014 however neither were a part of the team which beat Australia in the final.
Train-on camps begin this week in Auckland and Sydney, with the 23-strong touring side to be announced on October 8 soon after the NRL Premiership Grand Final which is scheduled for October 4.
Players from the four teams still competing will be added once their club commitments are complete.
