RUGBY LEAGUE: Walker is relishing Kiwi clash.
The 23-year-old Walker has been used effectively off the bench by Great Britain coach Brian Noble in both Gillette Tri-Nations matches so far and is expected to play a key role in Saturday's mustwin game against New Zealand.
If he once more finds himself in the second row, Walker will be among familiar company for he will come u p against the brilliant ballhandling skills of Lauitiiti and Wakefield second rower David Solomona.
"I'm on the left now but I was up against Ali last year," said Walker. "He's always awkward to play against.
"He's very awkward t o play with as well because you never know what he's going to do. He's a bagful of tricks but it's always a pleasure to play against him.
"Dave's an awesome player, too, another one with all the skills. You've just got to front up and give him no space t o play."
Fresh from captaining a weakened New Zealand team to a 30-22 victory over England, Lauitiiti is expected to win his 16th cap on Saturday when the tourists seek to confirm their place in the November 26 final
