Esan Marsters playing for New Zealand against England in Denver, 2018.

Wests Tigers centre Esan Marsters has been named in the New Zealand wider squad for the Kiwis upcoming clash against Australia on October 13.

Marsters, who was recently named the club's Best New Talent for 2018, made his international debut for New Zealand earlier this year as part of the Denver Test match against England.

The 22-year-old has once again been named by Coach Michael Maguire in the extended squad for the upcoming Trans-Tasman showdown, which will see the Junior Kiwis, Kiwi Ferns and Kiwis all face off against their Australian counterparts at the same ground for the first time since 2014.

The wider squad for New Zealand will be narrowed down next month ahead of the Trans-Tasman Test, with the Kiwis set to field a much stronger side than the did in the mid-year Pacific Test against England.

Regular representatives Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Jordan Rapana, Shaun Johnson, Kevin Proctor, Jesse Bromwich, Adam Blair and Tohu Harris have all been included in the squad by Maguire, as well as a number of fresh faces including Bulldogs winger Reimis Smith and Warriors forward Isaiah Papali'i.

Wests Tigers would like to congratulate Esan on his selection in the wider New Zealand squad!
