WARRINGTON Wolves' players have spoken of their pride to be representing England in the Rugby League World Cup.

The Wire skipper Chris Hill and teammates Kevin Brown, Ben Currie and Stefan Ratchford will fly with the England party to Australia tomorrow in preparation for a tournament that will start with a clash against the Kangaroos at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium on Friday, October 27.

"There's no better feeling than pulling the England shirt on again," says prop forward Hill, an international for six years.

"It's something special and the feeling you get being with all the lads provides for a good buzz in the camp.

"Let's go and do something special."

Stand-off Brown, who gained his first cap as a Warrington player in May's Test victory against Samoa in Sydney, added: "I'm massively honoured to be selected in a World Cup for my country with this group of players.

"I'm representing my family and my country. I can't wait."

Back-rower Currie, back to full fitness after knee injuries curtailed most of his 2017 club season, said: "It's been a tough year for myself with not playing many games but they've shown great faith in me throughout the year by keeping me in the squad.

"I'm looking forward to repaying them when I get over there."

Ratchford, who featured at full-back in the mid-season Test victory over Samoa, said: "I'm overwhelmed. It's a massive honour to be selected in any England squad but to be selected for a World Cup is something you dream of when growing up."
