Rabbitohs back-rower Cameron Murray.

Cameron Murray, Jack Wighton and Payne Haas are set to be rewarded for breakout seasons with an Australian jersey when the Kangaroos team is named on Monday morning. understands the trio is set to be included in an extended squad named by coach Mal Meninga on Monday for the upcoming Test matches against New Zealand and Tonga.

Melbourne flyer Josh Addo-Carr is also expected to be named to make his Test debut, earning his spot in the national team after back-to-back Origin series victories with New South Wales.

His Storm teammate, Dale Finucane, is also under consideration. Latrell Mitchell is likely to return to the Australian team despite being dumped by the Blues after the opening game of the Origin series.

The Roosters are expected to have four players in the squad, with Luke Keary to battle it out with Cameron Munster for the right to partner Daly Cherry-Evans in the halves.

Keary made his debut last year with Munster forced to withdraw from the end-of-season Tests for personal reasons. Fellow grand finalist Josh Papalii is also expected to get a call-up after a brief hiatus from the national side, however his availability won’t be confirmed until after Sunday’s premiership decider.

Kalyn Ponga is expected to be overlooked but will be named in the Australian team for the Nines Tournament at Bankwest Stadium in a fortnight’s time.

Backs (expected): James Tedesco, Josh Addo-Carr, Latrell Mitchell, Jack Wighton, Dane Gagai, Cameron Munster, Daly Cherry-Evans, Blake Ferguson, Luke Keary
