Semi Final Teams announced

After his record-breaking five try haul Valentine Holmes will again start on the wing for the Kangaroos, outside centre partner Josh Dugan. Wade Graham has also retained his spot on the bench for the sudden-death clash with Fiji on Friday night.

This means that coach Mal Meninga has kept the faith in the same 17 who got the job done in the quarters. England and Fiji have also retained the same 17 men in each of their sides.

Andrew Fifita has been named to start for Tonga in their clash with England, as the only other Shark to take the field this weekend after Ricky Leutele and Joseph Paulo bowed out with Samoa, and James Segeyaro fell short with Papua New Guinea.

All the official line-ups for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup semi-finals can be found below, with the teams set to be reduced to 17 an hour before kick-off on game day.
