Holden Cup trio Joseph Manu, Taane Milne and Braden Uele have this morning been named as part of the Junior Kiwis Squad to face the Junior Kangaroos on 18 October.

Key figures in Adam Hartigan's U20s side throughout the 2014 season, the young Roosters have joined the group following the conclusion of their season at the hands of the NZ Warriors last Saturday afternoon.

They will join the Squad in the coming days before facing-off with their Australian counterparts in a month's time.
