Jake Trbojevic called into Australian squad

Outstanding Manly Warringah Sea Eagles lock Jake Trbojevic has been called into the Australian Kangaroos squad as 18th man for the ANZAC Test against New Zealand at Canberra's GIO Stadium on Friday, May 5.

His call up is a fine reward for the Manly junior who has been in superb form in the opening eight rounds of the Telstra Premiership.

Trbojevic became Manly’s 70th Australian player when he made his Test debut against Scotland in the Four Nations tournament at the end of last season in which he scored a try on debut.
