As well as Brooks, Head Coach Jason Taylor has named experienced forwards Elijah Taylor, Joel Edwards, Ava Seumanufagai and Sauaso Sue to bolster the side.
"I've been watching the Auckland Nines for a lot of years now and to know that I'm playing in it next year is exciting," says Hayne.
"Coach [Neil Henry] has told me that I'm playing in the Auckland Nines. I'm looking forward to getting down there with the guys. I'm pumped to be a part of it."
