TWO Warrington Wolves players have been named in the England Knights squad for Sunday's clash with Jamaica.

Toby King and Tom Lineham look set to be involved in the game at Headingley, while the team will be led by Wire academy head coach Paul Anderson.

However, there is no place for Knights Performance Squad members Declan Patton and Danny Walker.

King and Lineham's involvement takes the number of Wire players participating in international fixtures to 12.

Six Wolves players – Blake Austin, Chris Hill, Jack Hughes, Daryl Clark, Joe Philbin and incoming signing Gareth Widdop – will be involved in either or both of the Downer World Cup Nines with England and Great Britain's tour of New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.

Ben Murdoch-Masila is in the Tonga squad for games against the Lions and Australia, Anthony Gelling will play for the Cook Islands at the World Cup Nines while Keanan Brand and Riley Dean are in the Ireland squad for World Cup qualifiers against Italy and Spain.

Anderson wants his young squad to use Wire pair Hughes and Philbin – both of whom were in the Knights party that toured Papua New Guinea last year – as examples of what can be achieved.

"I think this squad shows why it was so important for the Knights to play this autumn," he said.

“You can see from the Great Britain squad selected yesterday how much guys like Jack Hughes and Joe Philbin benefited from going to Papua New Guinea with the Knights last year.

“The other part of the pathway is young players such as Harry Newman, Harry Smith and Morgan Smithies coming up from the academy after outstanding performances against the Australian Schoolboys last autumn, and then building on that with their club performances this season.

“The average age of the squad is only 22, and 12 of the 19 will be hoping to win their first Knights cap.

"That makes it an exciting squad to be around, and with attractive opposition in Jamaica, we hope rugby league supporters will be keen to watch our next generation in international action next weekend."
