BEN Murdoch-Masila has been left out of the Tonga squad for the upcoming Oceania Cup match against New Zealand.

The Wire second rower has been a regular for Kristian Woolf's side in the past two years and has six caps.

However, he has missed out on their 22-man selection to face the Kiwis in Auckland on June 22, meaning he remains available for selection for Wolves.

It is a mainly NRL-based squad chosen, but Leeds Rhinos stand-off Tui Lolohea is selected.

Tonga squad: J Asiata (North Queensland), M Fainu (Manly), A Fifita (Cronulla), A Fonua-Blake (Manly), M Fotuaika (Gold Coast), D Fusi'tua (NZ Warriors), S Havili (Canberra), W Hopoate (Canterbury Bulldogs), M Jennings (Parramatta), R Jennings (Wests Tigers), S Kata (NZ Warriors), S Katoa (Penrith), T Lolohea (Leeds), M Ma'u (Parramatta), T Pangai jnr (Brisbane), K Staggs (Brisbane), T Tatola (South Sydney), S Taukeiaho (Sydney Roosters), J Taumalolo (North Queensland), P Terepo (Parramatta), D Tupou (Sydney Roosters), S Tupouniua (Sydney Roosters)
