Australian coach Tim Sheens is leaving no stone unturned ahead of the rugby league World Cup with a surprisingly powerful side named to represent the Prime Minister's XIII later this month.

Normally a squad containing a mish-mash of youngsters, established stars and veteran journeymen, the PM's XIII to take on Papua New Guinea in Kokopo on September 29 contains no less than nine players with Test experience in the starting line-up.

With Sheens to take a squad of 24 to the UK and Ireland in a bid to reclaim the World Cup, a number of players will be out to press their claims.

PM's XIII to play PNG: Jarryd Hayne, Brett Morris, Brent Tate, Josh Morris, Kevin Gordon, Greg Bird, Aidan Sezer, Ryan James, Robbie Farah, James Tamou, Sam Thaiday, Josh Papalii, Corey Parker.

Interchange: Gavin Cooper, Matt Gillett, David Shillington, Josh Reynolds. 18th man: Aiden Tolman
