Benji Marshall has laid down the law to players indecisive about representing the Kiwis.

Debate has raged in rugby league over the last month around international eligibility.

Bulldogs prop Sam Kasiano this week chose New Zealand over State of Origin and the Kangaroos, a contrast to Raiders second rower Josh Papalii who's gone the other way.

Kiwis captain Marshall has told Tony Veitch it's getting frustrating.

"If you don't want to represent New Zealand, well we don't want you. As good as players are, if there's any doubt or uncertainty in their mind about whether they want to represent their country or not, then don't do it."

"If you have to decide between making more money or representing your country - to be honest it's just bullshit. Go and play for New South Wales or Queensland, we don't want ya."

The Kiwis will go into camp this weekend ahead of next weekend's trans-Tasman test against the Kangaroos in Townsville.
