Incoming Rabbitohs' recruit Allan, selected in PM's XIII

South Sydney Rabbitohs' incoming recruit, Corey Allan, has been selected in the Prime Minister's XIII to take on Papua New Guinea in Port Moresby. 

Allan has been picked in the number 1 jumper, which will give South Sydney Members and supporters the chance to see the young flyer in action before he dons the famous cardinal and myrtle jersey.

Allan will join 12 other debutants and eight Australian Kangaroos representatives, in Australian Prime Minister Hon. Scott Morrison MP's side, which will be captained by Manly Warringah Sea Eagles halfback Daly Cherry-Evans.

"Playing in Papua New Guinea is a privilege, as there really is nothing like it anywhere in the world," PM's XIII men's Coach Mal Meninga said.

"We've struck a good balance by including some of our more experienced representative players to play alongside some very talented young players," PM's XIII men's Coach Mal Meninga said.

"A strong performance in Port Moresby on Saturday week will go some way to helping decide the final squad we take across to New Zealand for the upcoming Test Matches."

For the first time, the national women's side will also officially be known as the Australian PM's XIII Women's side, having played as a Jillaroos select side in last year's double-header.

World Cup winning Jillaroo and Indigenous All Stars captain Rebecca Young has been chosen to captain the women's squad.

"It's wonderful for the team to be officially recognised by the Prime Minister and to have his support, alongside the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT)," PM's XIII Women's Coach Brad Donald said.

"It provides the ability for us to empower women through rugby league and get some really important and positive messages out around ending gender-based violence.

"It's also just reward for some of our most-talented women to continue on our elite pathways and experience playing on the international stage."

Both teams will travel to Brisbane next Wednesday, before departing to Port Moresby the following day (Thursday).

The Prime Minister's XIII men's and women's squads are supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).
