Sharks fullback Valentine Holmes has been rewarded for his outstanding recent form by being named in the Junior Kangaroos team to play the NZ Junior Kiwis.

Holmes has been a standout for the Sharks so far this season, with his performances resulting in a positional switch from wing to the fullback role.

Coming up against Holmes next weekend will be Sharks NYC pivot Jamayne Isaako who has been named in an 18-man Junior Kiwi side.

Isaako is currently playing at five eighth for the under-20 Sharks, however he is equally capable of filling centre, wing or fullback roles if required.

The Junior Kangaroos v Junior Kiwis match is scheduled as the curtain raiser to the Pacific Test double-header on Saturday, May 2.

The match will be played at C-Bus Stadium on the Gold Coast.
