Dallin Watene-Zelezniak is in line to make his international debut after injury and suspension denied him in 2015 and 2014 respectively. Parramatta Eels forward Manu Ma’u could also make his Test debut, while Newcastle Knights hooker Danny Levi is listed as 19th man.
Ben Matulino, Bodene Thompson and Manu Vatuvei weren’t available for selection after failing to meet team standards for the Warriors at club level.
