Kangaroos squad announced for New Zealand, Tonga Tests

New South Wales captain Boyd Cordner will lead the Kangaroos for the first time in their upcoming Test matches against New Zealand and Tonga later this month.

Cordner will become the first New South Wales captain to skipper the Kangaroos since Danny Buderus in 2005 after newly appointed captain Greg Inglis was stood down for two matches by the NRL.

South Sydney Rabbitohs centre Dane Gagai has been added to the squad following the omission of Inglis.

The Kangaroos will face New Zealand on home soil for the first time since the 2014 Four Nations final when they face off at Mount Smart Stadium on October 13 before taking on Pacific powerhouse Tonga in a highly-anticipated clash on October 20 to close out the international calendar for the green and gold.

Wests Tigers centre Esan Marsters has been named in the Kiwis squad by Coach Michael Maguire, with the centre looking to build on his New Zealand debut against England in the mid-year Denver Test.
