Carney and O'Loughlin out for Tri-Nations match

Great Britain will be without winger Brian Carney and loose forward Sean O'Loughlin for tomorrow's Tri-Nations clash with New Zealand in Wellington.

Carney has lost his battle against a hamstring injury - despite head coach Brian Noble insisting earlier he was ``100%'' - while O'Loughlin is believed to have a leg injury.

Carney picked up the injury during last week's shock 23-12 win over Australia in Sydney.

Leon Pryce reverts to the wing and Gareth Ellis moves from second row to loose forward.
