Taumalolo among three New Zealand additions

Updated: 

Jason Taumalolo has been called up to the New Zealand squad ahead of next month's Test against Australia.

The North Queensland Cowboys lock shared the Dally M Medal with Cooper Cronk this week and joins Canberra Raiders pair Jordan Rapana and Joseph Tapine in getting the international nod.

New coach David Kidwell will cut his 32-man selection down to 24 next week as he prepares for his first game at the helm.

He will then lead his charges into Four Nations action.
