Magpie Junior, Matt Groat selected for Young Kangaroos

Wests Tigers players Matt Groat and Jacob Miller have today been selected in the ARL Junior Kangaroos side to play in Newcastle on Sunday, October 16.
The Junior Kangaroos will play the New Zealand Junior Kiwis in Newcastle in the preliminary game to the Australia V New Zealand Test Match at Ausgrid Stadium, Newcastle.
The selection of Groat and Miller in the 18 man squad caps off a fine season with both making their NRL debuts after starting the season in the U20s.
Groat played 10 NRL matches after making his debut against the Dragons at WIN Jubilee Oval in round 12, establishing himself as a young prop with plenty of raw potential.
Miller played 4 NRL matches after making his debut against former club Sydney Roosters at the SFS in round 4.
The talented playmaker was one of the major driving forces in Wests Tigers making the U20s finals. Miller will be pushing hard for the first grade half-back position next season.
