Watch: Kiwis hooker throws Te Maire Martin under the bus over marae chores: 'He always seems to disappear'

Young Kiwis hooker Danny Levi has revealed which of his teammates are - and which aren't - helping out around Turangawaewae Marae, with the New Zealand squad in camp this week.

As a team building exercise, coach David Kidwell is insisting that the squad help out with the chores around the marae, with Levi quick to throw five-eighth Te Maire Martin under the bus.

"He always seems to disappear when it comes to that," Levi told 1 NEWS.

"I think he cleaned the same bench for about half an hour today before breakfast.

"He's smart in a way to get out of doing work - he's been helping out a fair bit as well, but he's got little tricks that he does."
