Clive Churchill Medal winner Luke Keary will join the Australian Test squad in place of Cameron Munster, who has withdrawn from the squad due to personal reasons.

The Roosters five-eighth is set to cap an incredible season by making his debut for the Kangaroos.

Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga said Keary deserved his inclusion in the national squad.

“It’s unfortunate to lose Cameron for the next two matches but there’s far more important things in life than football sometimes,” Meninga told NRL.com

“We’ve brought Luke straight into the squad and he fully deserves the opportunity after what was a fantastic season.

“He’s delivered on big occasions countless times over the past few years and I’ve got no doubt he’ll deliver again if called upon during the next two weeks.”

    • Yeah like how to go jack on his team mates, play only for himself and be a selfish backflipping pr!ck.

    • Hes a 5/8 buddy dce was best on field in game 3 the guy killed it. Keary is a myth hes played for 2 teams that bought there trophies.

      • @54_nil.
        You are a goose.
        DCE and manly Cheated for 5 years and didnt win a thing.
        Keary 2 x prems and Clive Churchill medal winner without cheating.
        Crawl back into your hole and stfu.

        • Come on 54, you don’t really think DCE is that great, surely?
          I’ll admit he played well in the origin game, and back end of the season, but at the end of the day he’s in the Aussie squad because we have numerous exciting play making 5/8’s, like Munster, Keary, Walker etc and we need to balance that.
          I wouldn’t call DCE a particuarly great organising half, but when you consider those that have left rep footy recently, and some with past failings at rep level, including DCE prior to this years origin game, DCE is a sort of incumbent.
          I think Cleary will have his spot soon enough.

    • I must be dreaming, or is Inglis, Tuqiri, 3 x English Burgess Brothers along with Teo local juniorsβ“πŸ’²β“πŸ’²β“πŸ’²β“πŸ’²β“πŸ’²β“ and Souffs signed or should I say stole Koroisau who was a Berala Bear along with Auva who playing as a Queenslander became a Melbourne Storm Junior but Souths later signed him from Cronulla, Mate Souths bought a premiership in 2014 as every team in the past 30 years has. Oh I forgot how your rabbits purchased Keary from the Gold Coast playing for the Burleigh Bears, previously when he lived in Sydney he was a Kellyville Bushranger which is a long way from South Sydney, a Team Royce Ayliffe had a stint with after he retired from 1st grade. How many more purchases would you like me to remind you ofβ“β“β“β“β“β“πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£

  1. I try hard to educate these people on here but to no avail. Keary deserved the position for state of Origin and Australia. He has been in brilliant touch all season. Just a reminder to everyone why players are attracted to the Roosters. Not only are they the most successful club in the 21st century but they go onto representative honors. Keary, Tedesco, make their Test debut soon while from this 2018 team they have nine test players chosen from their grand final side. Keary did not get rep honors at Souths but at the Roosters he has gain international honors. Crighton will be next, if he cuts out his silly 3 penalties per game then next season should see him represent Australia also.πŸ’ͺπŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸŽ±πŸŽ±πŸŽ±πŸŽ±πŸŽ±πŸŽ±πŸŽ±πŸŽ±πŸŽ±
