Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison will be in the country later today to watch the Australian Prime Minister's XIII rugby league team clash against the Fiji Prime Minister's XIII at the ANZ Stadium.

NRL.com reports Morrison will become the first Australian leader to attend the fixture since its inception in 2005, which has previously been held in Papua New Guinea up until this season under a new agreement with the Fijian Government and Fiji Rugby League.

Morrison joined Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga in Canberra last month to help select the squad.
