Dyldam Parramatta Eels Under 20s playmaker Zach Dockar-Clay will represent the Junior Kiwis this week as they play the Junior Kangaroos at CBus Super Stadium on the Gold Coast.
The Junior trans-Tasman match will be the curtain-raiser to two Pacific match-ups, as the Fiji Bati play the Paupa New Guinea Kumuls, and Mate Ma'a Tonga take on Toa Samoa.
Dockar-Clay will also be facing three of his Eels teammates, with second-rower Tepai Moeroa, second-rower and centre Tyrell Fuimaono and prop Alex Twal all named in the Junior Kangaroos side.
