Manly Sea Eagles forward Jake Trbojevic has been called up to replace the injured Josh Papalii in Australia's Four Nations squad.
Trbojevic, 22, could make his international debut, with the Canberra Raiders' Josh Papalii ruled out due to an ankle injury.
Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga hopes Trbojevic, who is considered a future New South Wales State of Origin player, takes his chance.
"Jake will give us size and intimidation," he said.
"It is always disappointing to lose a player of Josh's calibre but this will be a wonderful opportunity for Jake and I'm excited to see what he can do in the green and gold jersey."
Australia face Scotland, New Zealand and England in the Four Nations, which begin on October 28.
