Junior Kangaroos v France

Friday October 25

WIN Stadium, Wollongong

Kick off: 3.15pm


Ryan Papenhuyzen

After being part of a World Cup Nines victory last weekend for Australia, Paps will complete a breakout year by starting at fullback for a powerful under-23s team who will play France for the first time.

Brodie Croft

Crofty will team up in the halves with Kalyn Ponga for the Junior Kangaroos and watch for him to pop up on both sides of his team’s attack. His on-field leadership has earned him vice captain status with the under-23s.

Tino Fa’asuamaleaui

This is Tino’s third straight week of representative rugby league after playing for the Australian PM’s XIII in Fiji and for Samoa at the World Nines. He will come off the interchange bench against the French

Australia v New Zealand

Friday October 25

WIN Stadium, Wollongong

Kick off: 8pm

TV broadcast: Nine/Gem

Josh Addo-Carr

The Foxx will make his debut for the Kangaroos after two standout State of Origin campaigns for NSW. He will play in his preferred left wing slot alongside good friend Latrell Mitchell from the Roosters.

Cameron Munster

Munny returns to the Kangaroos line-up for the first time since the 2017 Rugby League World Cup. His two Test appearances so far have yielded four tries and he will be a marked man for the Kiwis.

Kenny Bromwich

The clash with the Kangaroos will be Kenny’s ninth appearance for his country and second as a member of the starting forward pack. He’ll be aiming for a repeat of last October’s win against Australia.

Brandon Smith

Brandon again gets the chance to shine as the Kiwis’ starting hooker. This will be his sixth game for New Zealand overall and second this year following his outstanding man-of-the-match performance against Tonga in June.

Jahrome Hughes

After making his debut and scoring against Tonga, Jahrome has retained his interchange bench role and could come on to give his Storm teammate a rest at dummy-half or he can play in almost any position in the backline.
