Brisbane Broncos forward Matt Gillett will make his Holden Kangaroos debut in Friday night’s Rugby League Test against New Zealand at Sydney’s Allianz Stadium.

Gillett, who joined the Holden Kangaroos in camp this morning, will replace Broncos teammate Sam Thaiday, who has been ruled out of the Test with a calf injury.

Queensland representative Gillett, 25, has been in sensational form to start the NRL season.

Cowboys centre Brent Tate will join the squad as 18th man.
