The Kangaroos have named their squad for upcoming Test matches against New Zealand and Tonga, with young guns Cameron Murray, Jack Wighton and Payne Haas all selected in the side.

Josh Addo-Carr is also in the mix to make his debut alongside the above trio, with Nick Cotric and Paul Vaughan rounding out the six players who could pull on the green and gold for the first time.

Mal Meninga named the side on Monday morning, and also confirmed he has had his contracted extended until the end of the 2021 campaign, taking him through to the 2021 Rugby League World Cup.

Kangaroos squad: Josh Addo-Carr, Daly Cherry-Evans, Damien Cook, Boyd Cordner, Nick Cotric, Tyson Frizell, Wade Graham, Payne Haas, Ben Hunt, Luke Keary, David Klemmer, Latrell Mitchell, Cameron Munster, Cameron Murray, Josh Papalii, James Tedesco, Jake Trbojevic, Paul Vaughan, Jack Wighton.

Nines squad: Josh Addo-Carr, Jai Arrow, AJ Brimson, Nathan Brown, Kyle Feldt, Tyson Frizell, Reuben Garrick, Wade Graham, Clint Gutherson, Ben Hunt, Mitchell Moses, Ryan Papenhuyzen, Kalyn Ponga, Curtis Scott, Cody Walker.



  1. So the Dally M halfback of the year doesn’t deserve a spot in the Australian squad but Ben Hunt does?
    That will do me.
    Jobs for the boys Mal.

  2. Curtis Scott????? Is this the same player who only came into first grade for the last few games this year? The players names must have been drawn out of a hat, honestly. What a farce!!!

  3. The 9s squad is a joke.
    AJ Brimson, Nathan Brown, Kyle Feldt, , Ben Hunt, Curtis Scott, there are better players then these guys ….

  4. No body mentioned Wade Graham. How much of the season did he play?
    Surely one ideal centre for the 9’s squad would be Bronson Xerri. There’s no one faster.

  5. Kev. “Jobs for the boys”. Are you serious. There are 4 Qlders in a squad of 19. Mitchell can’t tackle and can’t play Hooker. Hunt is being chosen to cover for both hooker and halves. Also there is no way that Moses should get chosen ahead of DCE, Keary, Munster or Wighton in my opinion.
