St George Illawarra recruit Ben Hunt will play his first Test for Australia in three years against Lebanon in week three of the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

While Dragons teammate Tyson Frizell has been rested from playing the Cedars, Hunt has been named on the interchange for the Kangaroos for Saturday night's game.

Dragons prop Paul Vaughan (Italy) and utility Joe Lovodua (Fiji) will play one another on Friday night at Canberra Stadium.

Leeson Ah Mau (interchange) and Tim Lafai (centre) have been named for Samoa's all-important clash against Scotland in Cairns.

The winner of the Samoa-Scotland fixture will secure their place in the RLWC quarters to likely face Australia.

Dragons skipper Gareth Widdop has been named at fullback for England, with James Graham in the front row, to play France over in Perth.

Nene Macdonald will play in the centres on Sunday afternoon for Papua New Guinea in their clash against the United States of America in Port Moresby.
