Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga has made one change to his side from last week's win over the Kiwis for this Saturday's Tonga clash, handing a Test debut to breakout Rabbitohs star Cameron Murray.

Murray will replace utility Ben Hunt on what becomes an all-forward bench as the Kangaroos seek to match the forward firepower of the Tonga Invitational squad.

Murray was 18th man against New Zealand and becomes the sixth player to debut this post-season after Payne Haas, Jack Wighton, Nick Cotric, Josh Addo-Carr and Paul Vaughan each earned their first Kangaroos jersey against New Zealand.

Murray excelled in his senior representative debut this year, starring for NSW off the bench in a 2-1 Holden State of Origin series win. He was also arguably the Rabbitohs' best player through the closing stages of the season and Telstra Premiership finals.

The new-look Kangaroos cruised to a 26-4 win over the Kiwis while Tonga Invitational were impressive in a 14-6 upset of Great Britain, setting up a mouth-watering clash at Eden Park in the third leg of the Test triple header this Saturday night.
