MIKE Cooper and Harvey Livett have been added to the England Performance squads following a mid-season review.

Cooper – a stand-out in the Wire front row this season – has been added to the England Elite Performance Squad as he looks to add to his eight international caps.

He joins Wire teammates Chris Hill, Daryl Clark, Ben Currie and Stefan Ratchford in head coach Wayne Bennett’s 25-man performance squad.

Livett is rewarded for his sparkling form in the second row with a place in the 31-man Knights Performance squad, with Jack Hughes also remaining in coach Paul Anderson’s plans ahead of the season-ending tour to Papua New Guinea.
