Injured Wests Tigers skipper Aaron Woods has been replaced in the Kangaroos team for Friday nights ANZAC Test against New Zealand by Indigenous All Star Andrew Fifita.

Fifitas return is a sign that team management believe Fifita has learnt from last years omission due to off field disciplinary issues.

Veteran forward Sam Thaiday (pictured) says with the whole team creating a mantra based on Respect, Inspire, Selflessness and Respect, Fifita now has a chance to show he’s left the problems of the last few seasons behind.
