Check out the latest news involving our Kiwis playing league outside of New Zealand and Australia, with our wrap of the action from around Europe.

Ben Roberts crossed for a double when Castleford travelled to take on Hull FC, but it was fellow Kiwi Carlos Tuimavave who had the last laugh, scoring a crucial try for FC with 20 minutes to go which sealed the 26-24 victory.

Louis Anderson was another local lad to bag a couple of tries, but in the end it meant little as his Catalans team fell well short in a 42-22 loss to Thomas Leuluai’s Wigan Warriors.

Over in Widnes, former New Zealand Warriors wing Patrick Ah Van scored two of the Vikings’ three tries and made all the difference in a 16-14 win over St Helens. The Saints are now being coached by twice-capped Kiwi international Jamahl Lolesi after they parted ways with former coach Keiron Cunningham.

No lower league action took place last week due to a round of Challenge Cup matches being played, but New Zealand players still featured heavily in the action.

Toronto fell just short of a fairytale victory over the Salford Red Devils, going down 29-22 in Greater Manchester, but both Fuifui Moimoi and Quentin Laulu-Togaga’e scored tries for the trailblazing Wolfpack.

Misi Taulapapa and Chris Ulugia helped Featherstone to a 30-4 win over Oldham.
