North Queensland Toyota Cowboys Emry Pere, Peter Hola and Sean Mullany have been selected for the Junior Kiwis side to play the Junior Kangaroos on 13 October.
Forward Pere is on contract with the NRL squad and played his 2018 season with Cowboys feeder club the Northern Pride, while Hola (Northern Pride) and Mullany (Townsville Blackhawks) were part of the Hastings Deering Colts competition, facing off last month in their week 3 final.
The junior Test will be the first curtain-raiser at the "Trans-Tasman showdown" at Mount Smart Stadium in Auckland, with Kiwi Ferns v Jillaroos and Kiwis v Kangaroos making up the three-match program.
