With James Maloney has been ruled out of Friday night’s World Cup clash with France to deal with a private family matter in Sydney, Cameron Munster will move from the bench into the halfback slot to play alongside five-eighth Michael Morgan.

The matter is unrelated to news surrounding Maloney's possible move from Cronulla to Penrith.

Maloney left Kangaroos camp on Thursday night and was driven back to Sydney to tend to the matter and was unable to return in time for the game against France at Canberra Stadium.

Valentine Holmes has been added to the bench while the Kangaroos have been given approval to bring Dane Gagai into the 19-man squad.
