Kangaroos coach Tim Sheens has opted to keep faith with the majority of the players that helped win the 2013 World Cup last November.

Sheens has selected 14 of the starting line-up that beat the Kiwis in the World Cup Final at Old Trafford.

A few of his changes have been forced by injuries and lack of form and he has named Canterbury Bulldogs star Josh Morris in the centres following a shoulder injury to Jarryd Hayne.

Morris, who will link up with his brother Brett on the wing, has been preferred to Justin Hodges despite the Queenslander being in good form at the moment.

Andrew Fifita misses out due to poor form with Queensland Gold Coast Titans enforcer Nate Myles getting the chance to impress. Boyd Cordner gets a shot instead of Josh Papalii, while Corey Parker and Daly Cherry-Evans join him on the bench.

About the squad Sheens said: “It just comes down to with a short turnaround and that incumbents deserved an opportunity. It's healthy to have those guys playing as well as they are. 
"There's no one there that shouldn't be there. They are not in threat of being dropped by their teams let alone our team."

Fullback: Billy Slater
