New Zealand coach Stephen Kearney insists his side's Four Nations clash against Australia on Saturday is a "big game" despite its dead rubber status.

Both sides contest the 13 November final but the Kiwis will field a full-strength team in Auckland.

"It's a Test against Australia on our home ground," said Kearney. "No-one wants to be rested."

Aussie coach Tim Sheens, though, rests five-eighth and skipper Darren Lockyer, as well as full-back Billy Slater.

New Zealand: Lance Hohaia, Jason Nightingale, Shaun Kenny-Dowall, Junior Sa'u, Sam Perrett, Benji Marshall (cpt), Nathan Fien, Frank-Paul Nuuausala, Thomas Leuluai, Adam Blair, Sika Manu, Simon Mannering, Jeremy Smith.
Subs: Issac Luke, Greg Eastwood, Frank Pritchard, Ben Matulino, Bronson Harrison.

Australia: Darius Boyd, Brett Morris, Brent Tate, Chris Lawrence, Lote Tuqiri, Todd Carney, Cooper Cronk, Matthew Scott, Cameron Smith (cpt), David Shillington, Greg Bird, Sam Thaiday, Paul Gallen.
Subs: Dean Young, Petero Civoniceva, Tom Learoyd-Lahrs, Robbie Farah, Kurt Gidley.
