Wests Tigers centre Paul Momirovski has capped off his breakout season with selection in the 2019 Junior Kangaroos squad ahead of their clash against France on October 25.
Having already been selected to make his representative debut for the Prime Minister's XIII side later this month in Fiji, the 23-year-old has also been selected as part of an 18-man squad by Coach Neil Henry to take on France following an increase of selection age in the Junior Kangaroos from 20 to 23 years.
As a result, for the first time ever every player selected in the Junior Kangaroos squad this year has already played NRL throughout the season.
In his first season with the club, Momirovski showed his bright future with a number of strong performances at centre or wing — highlighted by his incredible 26-point individual haul against the St. George-Illawarra Dragons in Round 24.
Momirovski finished with eight tries and 21 goals from his 11 appearances for Wests Tigers as well as 10 linebreaks and an average of 127.7 metres per game.
The Junior Kangaroos match against France will be one of three matches featuring Australian sides on the night, with the Harvey Norman Jillaroos and Kangaroos to also play their matches against the Kiwi Ferns and Kiwis respectively.
