Sydney Roosters forward Victor Radley and Parramatta captain Clint Gutherson have been added to the Kangaroos squad for next weekend’s Test against Tonga at Eden Park.
Radley and Gutherson will travel to New Zealand as part of a 20-man squad to prepare for the Oceania Cup Test but are not expected to play.
Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga had intended to include Brisbane forward David Fifita in the squad after his impressive form in the World Cup 9s but he suffered a fractured eye socket playing for the Junior Kangaroos on Friday night.
Radley provides utility value as he can play lock or hooker, while Gutherson is able to cover most positions across the back line.
Meninga plans to hand South Sydney lock Cameron Murray his Test debut against Tonga.
Murray was the 18th man for the Kangaroos in Friday night's wonderful win over New Zealand in Wollongong.
