Darrius Boyd has withdrawn from the Kangaroos World Cup squad due to an ongoing hamstring injury.
Penrith Panthers winger Josh Mansour has been called into the Australian Kangaroos as Boyd's replacement.
In a statement Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga was disappointed Boyd will not take part in the tournament but has full confidence in Mansour.
“Obviously it’s disappointing for Darius, who has been a fantastic player for the Kangaroos,” Meninga said.
“It will be wonderful to see Josh back in the Kangaroos jersey after his injury in last year’s Four Nations.
“I know how disappointed he was to be injured last year and I know how passionate he is about the green and gold.
“It is a credit to him that he has been able to return to the highest representative honours.”
