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.

Leeds annihilated Salford in a 50-24 victory in Greater Manchester, with former Wests Tiger Ben Murdoch-Masila providing one of the few bright sparks for the Red Devils by grabbing a double.

There is other good new for Salford too, with New Zealand Warriors legend Manu Vatuvei confirmed to be heading their way immediately, likely to be available for their Challenge Cup semi-final against the Wigan Warriors on July 30.

One-time Mt Albert Lion Ukuma Ta’ai scored one of Huddersfield’s seven tries in a 40-0 shutout of Widnes, while Jake Webster scored a clutch late four-pointer for ladder-leading Castleford as they edged past Wakefield 25-24.

Moving down to the Championship and in Yorkshire runaway leaders Hull KR continued their stellar form, with former Junior Kiwi Zach Dockar-Clay coming off the bench to help his side to a 42-10 victory over the Bradford Bulls.

London hold second place after easing past Sheffield 52-16, with Api Pewhairangi helping himself to a double, while Auckland lad Chris Ulugia got in on the scoring for Featherstone in a 32-14 win against Oldham.

In Toronto, New Zealand-raised teenager Quinn Ngawati (pictured) – who we featured at the start of this year – made his League 1 debut for the trailblazing club, becoming the first Canadian-born player ever to feature for the club.
