The Warriors halfback Stacey Jones is adamant he'll not be tempted to return to international rugby league.

The Kiwis squad for the May 8th ANZAC Test in Brisbane is being finalised this week and coach Stephen Kearney has said he won't believe Jones has retired from Test football until he hears it from the 32-year-old.

But Jones, who's in Melbourne for Saturday night's match agaInst the Storm, says he's told Kearney he's concentrating on the NRL.

Stacey Jones played the last of his 46 Tests three years ago.
