Kangaroos Name Unchanged 17 For Final

Mal Meninga has again selected an unchanged Kangaroos outfit ahead of the all-important Rugby League World Cup Final against England.

Replicating the side which enjoyed heavy defeats of Samoa and Fiji in the quarter-finals and semi-finals, the side again features eight NSW-eligible players, including seven forwards. It also includes NSW Blues incumbent Aaron Woods, who has been declared fit to play the decider with the help of pain-killers. The 14-time Australian representative will play through a shoulder injury which was deemed not serious, sustained in the 54-6 win over the Bati.

The full Kangaroos team to take on England is as follows:

1 Billy Slater
2 Dane Gagai
3 Will Chambers
4 Josh Dugan
5 Valentine Holmes
6 Michael Morgan
7 Cooper Cronk
8 Aaron Woods
9 Cameron Smith
10 David Klemmer
11 Boyd Cordner
12 Matt Gillett
13 Josh McGuire

15 Jordan McLean
16 Reagan Cambell-Gillard
17 Tyson Frizell
