10:47 am on 21 May 2007

The 25 man Australia A squad for the Pacific Nations Cup includes Wallabies stalwart and hooker Jeremy Paul and two recent rugby league converts, backs Ryan Cross and Clinton Schifcofske.

Prolific NSW points-scoring back Peter Hewat, who has been consistently overlooked for Wallabies selection, has also made the squad.

It also included a number of Test players who have been sidelined by injury during the Super tournament in halfback Sam Cordingley, lock Alister Campbell and prop Rodney Blake

Australia A coached by Laurie Fisher will open the Cup by hosting Tonga this Friday evening at Aussie Stadium
