TOM Lineham has been called up to the England Knights squad for their season-ending tour of Papua New Guinea.

The Wire winger, who scored twice in last week's Super League semi-final victory over St Helens, is drafted in as a late replacement for Castleford's Greg Minikin, who has had to withdraw through injury.

Lineham's inclusion makes it five Wire players in head coach Paul Anderson's squad for the two-match series against the Kumuls, with Jack Hughes named as the side's captain last week.

Toby King, Harvey Livett and Joe Philbin are also included.

Another change to the Knights squad sees Salford's Niall Evalds replace Wigan's Oliver Gildart, who has been promoted to the full England squad in place of the injured Sam Burgess.
