Laurie Daley has selected Kelly in his squad alongside the likes of NRL superstars Josh Addo-Carr, David Fifita, Kotoni Staggs, Nicho Hynes and Alex Johnston.

The Maori side is also stacked with NRL talent, with Chanel Harris-Tavita, James Fisher-Harris, Joseph Tapine and Kodi Nikorima all proudly representing their heritage.

The match will be a double-header alongside the women’s teams. Shaylee Bent, Tamika Upton, Keilee Joseph and Quincy Dodd have been called-up by the Indigenous side.

For the Maori, Kennedy Cherrington, Botille Vette-Welsh, Corban Baxter and Zahara Temara are all set to feature.
