Junior Kiwis Side Finalised
The Junior Kiwis have named their final 18-man squad today ahead of their October 18 clash with the Junior Kangaroos in Auckland, including Eels players Zach Dockar-Clay and Josh Aloiai.
The Junior Test will be part of a double-header following the NZRL National Premiership final, and both the Junior Kiwis and Kangaroos will include two Eels players in their line-up.
It's the second Junior Test nod for Dockar-Clay, and the first for Aloiai, who were both part of the Eels Holden Cup side that fell just one win short of a Grand Final berth this season.
Despite missing out on a place in the final 18, winger Fabian Goodall was also called out for a fantastic season in the Blue and Gold with a place in the initial Junior Kiwis squad.
