Kangaroos name injured duo for final

Coach Ricky Stuart has named injury concerns Brent Tate and Paul Gallen in an unchanged Australian team for Saturday's Rugby League World Cup final against New Zealand in Brisbane.

Tate suffered a hip flexor injury and Gallen a corked thigh in last Sunday's 52-0 semi-final demolition of Fiji at the Sydney Football Stadium.

Neither player trained on Tuesday, although Gallen is considered less of a concern than Tate.

Manly's David Williams is the most likely replacement for Tate if needed while Anthony Watmough and Josh Perry would come into calculations should Gallen not recover in time.

Australia: Billy Slater, Joel Monaghan, Greg Inglis, Israel Folau, Brent Tate, Darren Lockyer (capt), Johnathan Thurston, Petero Civoniceva, Cameron Smith, Steve Price, Glenn Stewart, Anthony Laffranchi, Paul Gallen. Interchange: Karmichael Hunt, Craig Fitzgibbon, Anthony Tupou, Brent Kite.
