BLAKE Austin has once again been named on the wing in Great Britain's provisional squad for Saturday's Test against Papua New Guinea.

The Warrington Wolves stand-off, who filled in as a makeshift winger for Wayne Bennett's injury-hit side in Saturday's loss to New Zealand, is given the number five shirt despite Leeds winger Ash Handley flying out to join the squad and Zak Hardaker returning to fitness.

Handley, who was brought into the squad to be in contention for this match in Port Moresby, is not even named in Bennett's 21.

All five of Austin's Wire teammates who are on tour are named, with Jack Hughes once again being named in the centres.

Gareth Widdop and Chris Hill keep their places at stand-off and prop, Daryl Clark is named on the bench while Joe Philbin also returns having missed the second Test against the Kiwis with a hamstring injury.

Great Britain squad to face Papua New Guinea:

Jonny Lomax; Jermaine McGillvary, Jack Hughes, Jake Connor, Blake Austin; Gareth Widdop, Jackson Hastings; Chris Hill, Josh Hodgson, Tom Burgess, John Bateman, Elliot Whitehead, James Graham (captain). Subs (from): Josh Jones, Luke Thompson, Daryl Clark, Alex Walmsley, Joe Philbin, George Williams, Jake Trueman, Zak Hardaker.
