New Zealand captain Benji Marshall was one of four players added to the national train-on squad on Friday to prepare for the Kiwis Test and Four Nations league tour in October-November.

He comes into the squad after the Wests Tigers were eliminated from the NRL title race last Friday night by the Warriors.

St George Illawarra winger Jason Nightingale and halfback-hooker Nathan Fien have been added following the Dragons loss to Brisbane in their semi-final on Saturday night.

Also joining the squad is Newcastle centre Junior Sau.

New Zealand warm up against the Cook Islands on October 6 in Rarotonga.

The Kiwis play Australia on October 16 at Ausgrid Stadium in Newcastle, before opening their Four Nations campaign - also against the Kangaroos - on October 28 at Warrington in England.
