Four Sea Eagles named for Kangaroos train-on squad
The Australian selectors and head coach Tim Sheens today added four Sea Eagles players to the train on squad for the upcoming Four Nations Tournament and Prime Minister’s XIII match against Papua New Guinea.
Sea Eagles Anthony Watmough, Brenton Lawrence, Brett Stewart and Daly Cherry-Evans have been included in the side, which will be trimmed down ahead of the Four Nations after the Grand Final.
Brenton Lawrence earns a call up for his first national squad after another stellar season for the Club in which he was voted Best and Fairest and Clubman of the year at the recent end of season awards.
There were deserved recalls for Watmough and Stewart who both missed last years World Cup through injury, while Daly Cherry-Evans retains his spot in Tim Sheens side to take on Samoa, England and New Zealand.

The PM’s team will play the PNG Kumuls at Kokopo on Sunday October 12.The Four Nations squad will be announced following this game.
