Nevertheless, Wayne Bennett has named a strong squad for the contest, with a number of Australia’s triumphant Four Nations winning side named in the squad.

Darius Boyd, Matt Gillett, and Sam Thaiday are all set to feature, while other international stars such as Anthony Milford and Jordan Kahu are in contention to play.
