Rabbitohs skipper, Greg Inglis has today (Tuesday) been selected to represent the Australian Kangaroos in the 2016 Downer Test Match against the New Zealand Kiwis at Newcastle’s Hunter Stadium on Friday, May 6.

Inglis has been selected in the centres, partnering Josh Dugan to play what will be his 35th Test Match for Australia.

Four debutants – wingers Semi Radradra and Blake Ferguson and interchange players Josh McGuire and Michael Morgan are also part of Coach, Mal Meninga’s first Australian team.

“This is a well-balanced squad and I’m extremely happy with it,” Meninga said.
 
“We have some experience as well as a handful of younger players who I am looking forward to seeing in this arena.
 
“It is the fourth most experienced line-up in Australia’s Test history but there will also be four players making their debuts.
 
“This is an incredibly important game for this group. I want to ensure the players have pride in the national jumper and my goal is to establish the Kangaroos back at the top of the international rankings.
 
“We have a Four Nations tournament at the end of this year and then a World Cup in 2017. This is the start of an important journey for the Kangaroos.”

Congratulations to Greg on his selection for the upcoming Test Match.
