'Proud' Chambers ready for Friday

Storm centre Will Chambers says making his Australian debut on Friday night will be "one of the prouder days of my life."

Chambers has been named to make his Test debut in Friday's ANZAC Test against New Zealand and  will become the 800th player to represent Australia.

"It's very exciting, it's obviously very humbling to be here," Chambers told the media on Monday on his first day in Australian camp.

"Come Friday night it will be one of the prouder days of my life.

"To pull on the green and gold on Friday night will be something I always remember.

"To play for your nation is the pinnacle."

The 26-year old will line-up alongside Melbourne teammates and experienced Kangaroos campaigners Cameron Smith, Cooper Cronk and Billy Slater.

"They've always been there for me with footy and they've always helped me," Chambers said when asked about the trio's influence.

"They're mentors for me in a lot of ways."
