New Zealand prop Fuifui Moimoi will miss rugby league's Four Nations tournament after suffering a broken arm, team officials say.

Moimoi, who plays for NRL team the Parramatta Eels, would be sidelined for at least six weeks after scans showed a fracture in his right arm, team doctor Simon Mayhew said on saturday.

The player had complained of a pain in his arm for some time but the cause of the injury was not clear, added Mayhew.

Penrith Panthers prop Sam McKendry has been called up as a replacement, giving the 21-year-old a chance to earn his debut Test cap for the Kiwis.

New Zealand kick off their Four Nations campaign against England in Wellington on October 23, followed by clashes with Papua New Guinea in Rotorua on October 30 and Australia in Auckland on November 6.

Before that, the Kiwi side will play their first-ever Test against Samoa at Auckland on October 16.
