In the week before the Kiwis first international test in two years, there are calls for everyone to step up to revive the international side of the game.

Kiwis coach Michael Maguire believes the international side of the game has taken an immeasurable hit because of Covid and tests need to be made a priority again because of it.

Former Kiwis captain Richie Barnett knows about the pride of the Kiwis jersey and he joined Mike Hosking.
