The captaincy of the 27-year-old Penrith starand was announced on Saturday night in Auckland in a meeting attended by all Kiwis teams, as well as former New Zealand captains such as Ruben Wiki, Stephen Kearney, Adam Blair and Nathan Cayless.

Fisher-Harris, who has amassed 180 NRL games since making his Panthers debut in 2016, takes over the captaincy from veteran Kiwi Jesse Bromwich, who called time on his international career.

“It is a great privilege and honor to lead my country,” said Fisher-Harris.
I am proud to represent my family and the people where I come from (Pohjola). It’s a special moment to lead your teammates against Toa Samoa at Eden Park.

Saturday’s test against Samoa will not be Fisher-Harris’ first experience of the Kiwis, having filled the Bromwich role in last year’s Rugby League World Cup clash against Jamaica in Hull.
“James has developed into a fantastic leader in his time with the Kiwis,” Kiwi coach Michael Maguire said.

“He was a natural choice to lead this campaign. He is highly regarded by all our players and staff, he is very much a leader whose actions speak for themselves.
