Coach Mal Meninga has named four current Test players in a powerful Prime Minister's XIII to take on the PNG PM's XIII in Port Moresby on September 24.

Captain Greg Inglis, Semi Radradra, Josh Dugan and Blake Ferguson, who all appeared in the May Test against the Kiwis, will be heading to Port Moresby with the team next week.

The exciting backline also includes Wests Tigers guns James Tedesco and Mitchell Moses plus Mitchell Pearce at halfback.

While the squad is comprised wholly of players not involved in the last three weeks of the NRL finals, Meninga has promised all can push their claims to be in his Kangaroos squad for the Four Nations tournament starting next month.

"This is an outstanding squad," Meninga said on Tuesday.

"There are four representatives from the Test match against New Zealand and on top of that, no less than nine of the players were a part of Origin this year."

"The PNG tours are some of the most enjoyable trips I have been on but they are no holiday when you run onto the field.

"The PNG boys play a tough and energetic brand of football and they will be well backed by a huge crowd, all willing the home team on."

Australian Prime Minister's XIII: James Tedesco, Semi Radradra, Greg Inglis (capt), Josh Dugan, Blake Ferguson, Mitchell Moses, Mitchell Pearce, Aaron Woods, Jake Friend, Ryan James, Boyd Cordner, Tyson Frizell, Josh Jackson, David Klemmer, Moses Mbye, Dylan Napa, Jake Trbojevic.
