Egan is one of 10 players with NRL experience named by head coach Stephen Kearney.

Tonga international David Fusitua is the most experienced player named, and is included along with four 2019 NRL rookies in centre-winger Patrick Herbert, utility Hayze Perham and halves Chanel Harris-Tavita and Adam Keighran.

Other NRL players named are prop Sam Lisone, middle forward Lachlan Burr, second rower Taane Milne and interchange forward Leivaha Pulu.
