"Brett Hodgson brings a lot to the side on and off the field." PA quotes McClennan as saying.
"His leadership and experience is going to be crucial for us. It's a one-off match and we're going to give it our best shot."
The 2013 International Origin Match takes place at Warrington's Halliwell Jones Stadium on June 14.
