Fiji and Samoa will both be missing key individuals for this Saturday's Pacific rugby league Test in Sydney.
13 of coach Rick Stone's 19-strong Bati squad were involved in last year's World Cup where Fiji made it to the semi finals.
North Queensland Cowboys' forward Ashton Sims has been named captain, following the retirement of Petero Civoniceva, while Akuila Uate, Sisa Waqa, Apisai Koroisau and Wes Naiqama were all unavailable.
The bulk of the team plays in the NRL although Fiji-based players Atunaisa Turagaiviu and Osea Sadrau have also been included.
There is also a call-up for South Sydney wing Lote Tuqiri, who last played for the Bati at the 2000 World Cup.
Toa Samoa coach Matt Parish has been able to call on just seven players from the squad that made it to the World Cup quarter finals, with a hefty list of UK based players unavailable for selection.
Among the new faces are Bulldogs centre Krisnan Inu, who turned out for the Kiwis at the World Cup and wing Dominique Peyroux, who represented the Cook Islands.
Canberra flyer Anthony Milford is another notable omission, with the Queensland State of Origin hopeful having chosen to sit out the test.
The winning team will qualify for the Four Nations tournament at the end of the year.
