Our Junior Kangaroos for October Test

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys Jake Clifford and Enari Tuala will both cap off big years in their young careers with a place in the Junior Kangaroos side to play the Junior Kiwis on Saturday 13 October.

The squad includes 11 players with NRL Telstra Premiership experience: Victor Radley, Sean O'Sullivan (Roosters); Clifford and Tuala (Cowboys); Gehamat Shibasaki, Kotoni Staggs (Broncos); Zac Lomax, Reece Robson (Dragons); Nick Cotric, Emre Guler (Raiders); and Kyle Flanagan (Sharks).

There are also five incumbents from the side that defeated the Junior Kiwis 46-22 in May 2017 at GIO Stadium in Canberra.

"It's an enormous honour to represent your country and these players should feel immensely proud to be pulling on the green and gold of Australia in New Zealand next week," Junior Kangaroos coach Neil Henry said.

"It's a strong group of players who fully deserve their selection after excelling this season in both the NRL and state-based competitions.

"There's no doubt it'll be a tough match away from home but I'm confident the squad we've named today will get the job done."

The Junior Kangaroos match against the Junior Kiwis will kick off the first of three matches between Australia and New Zealand in Auckland, with the Jillaroos and Australian Kangaroos to follow in their matches against the Kiwi Ferns and Kiwis respectively.
