BUNDABERG Rugby League's representative side will face one of their toughest tests when they face CQ Capras at Salter Oval on Saturday.

The representative side features some of the best players from the BRL, including six players from last year's grand final.

They will face a Capras side brimming with former NRL and Intrust Super Cup talent.

Former Sydney Rooster and Bradford Bull Adam Henry, former Newcastle Knight Matt Minto and former Wests Tiger and Penrith Panthers hooker Masada Iosefa will headline the Gavin Hiscox-captained side.

The game serves as a curtain-raiser to the highly-anticipated NRL trial between Brisbane Broncos and North Queensland Cowboys.
