Dane Gagai will once again start on the wing for Australia as the Kangaroos face Samoa in the Northern Territory.

Billy Slater, Josh Dugan, Michael Morgan, Will Chambers, Josh McGuire and Tyson Frizell will return for the Australian Kangaroos for the Rugby League World Cup quarter final against Samoa at TIO Stadium, Darwin on Friday night.
 
Chambers, who hails from the Northern Territory, will play in the first Rugby League Test match involving the Kangaroos in Darwin.
 
“This is a quarter final and we have named what we believe is our strongest possible team for the occasion,” Kangaroos Coach Mal Meninga said.
 
“We understand that Samoa will be desperate to play well so we are making sure we do everything possible with our preparation to be successful.”
