Three players named in Kangaroos team

Manly-Warringah players Daly Cherry-Evans, Jake Trbojevic and Tom Trbojevic will represent the Australian Kangaroos in the Trans-Tasman Test Match against the New Zealand Kiwis at Mt Smart Stadium, Auckland on Saturday evening.

Half-back Cherry-Evans will play his first Test match for Australia since 2014. He has played 11 Tests previously for the Kangaroos.

Cherry-Evans scored two tries in a strong display in the Prime Minister's XIII's win over Papua New Guinea in Port Moresby last Saturday. Jake also played in the match as did Sea Eagles team-mate Brian Kelly.

Although a specialist full-back, Tom has been named in the centres for the Test match against the Kiwis.

Jake, the Manly lock and vice-captain, has been named on the interchange bench.

It will be a special moment for Tom and Jake, and the Trbojevic family, with the brothers playing together for the first time in a Test match for Australia.

Daly, Tom and Jake will come up against Manly prop Martin Taupau, who has been named on the Kiwis bench.
