A total of 10 Storm players have been selected in World Cup squads for Week 3.

Billy Slater is set to be rested having been named as a reserve for the Kangaroos’ clash against Lebanon. Cameron Munster and Felise Kaufusi retain their spots after impressive debuts.

Munster will shift to the centres after scoring two tries and setting up another three  more in an impressive first up showing in the No.6 jersey. Kaufusi has been promoted to the starting side after running for 106 metres in 49 minutes off the bench last week against France.

Kenny Bromwich is also listed as a reserve for New Zealand while Nelson Asofa-Solomona will look to continue his impressive form off the bench for the Kiwis.

Suliasi Vunivalu and Tui Kamikamica will line up for Fiji on Friday night, Young Tonumaipea for Samoa the following day while Justin Olam will look to help keep PNG undefeated in the tournament when they take on the USA.

All games can be viewed free-to-air on the Seven Network.
