A handful of St George Illawarra players have been granted some solace from their shock NRL premiership exit by being named in the Kangaroos Four Nations train-on squad on Monday.

Utility back Darius Boyd, second-rower Ben Creagh, winger Brett Morris, five-eighth Jamie Soward and props Michael Weyman and Justin Poore have been added to the Australian squad following the Dragons 24-10 semi-final loss to Brisbane on Saturday night.

Centre Matt Cooper (heel) was unavailable for selection due to injury.

Gold Coast have had four players named in the train-on squad after their 27-2 drubbing at the hands of Parramatta on Friday night.

Prop Luke Bailey, lock Ashley Harrison, second-rower Anthony Laffranchi and halfback Scott Prince will line up when the squad assembles under coach Tim Sheens at the Sydney Football Stadium on Wednesday September 30.

The Kangaroos head to England and France on October 17 to take on the hosts, France and World Cup holders New Zealand in the inaugural Four Nations competition.

Meanwhile, Manly forward Glenn Stewart and Wests Tigers forward Chris Heighington have been called into the Prime Ministers XIII team following injuries to Cronulla captain Paul Gallen and Penrith lock Luke Lewis.

Gallen was on Monday ruled out with a shoulder injury while Lewis is sidelined with a toe complaint.

The Australian Rugby League has retained Canberra five-eighth Terry Campese in the squad despite an alcohol-related incident on Friday night.

The NSW State of Origin representative was arrested by Queanbeyan police for failing to move on from a licensed premises and fined $550.

The ARU said in a statement that after discussions with the Raiders it was decided no further disciplinary action would be taken against Campese.

Campese has apologised to police and the owner of the hotel for his behaviour and was not charged over the incident.

ARL Prime Ministers XIII: Josh Dugan, Michael Robertson, Michael Jennings, Joel Monaghan, David Williams, Terry Campese, Johnathan Thurston (c), David Shillington, Robbie Farah, Keith Galloway, Trent Waterhouse, Luke O'Donnell, Glenn Stewart. Interchange: Chris Heighington, Nate Myles, Tom Learoyd-Lahrs, George Rose, Ben Jones.
