FOUR Warrington Wolves players have been named in the England Knights squad for their post-season clash with Jamaica.

Academy graduates Ellis Longstaff and Connor Wrench are both included and could face the Reggae Warriors at Castleford's Mend-A-Hose Jungle on Friday, October 15.

Matty Ashton and Danny Walker are also part of the 20-man squad named by Knights head coach Paul Anderson, who is also head academy coach at The Wire.

“Through the Knights programme, we’re investing in the future of England rugby league and although we’ve had a few injuries and promotions to the senior set-up, it’s created opportunities for others to come in and show what they can do," Anderson said.

"I’m really excited about working with this group of players and helping them realise their potential.” The Knights will now spend the coming week in camp in Leeds ahead of the game, which acts as a Testimonial match for Castleford Tigers man Jordan Turner.

“The Knights is about developing talent, preparing well and competing hard," Anderson said.

"My job is to prepare players for the next step - the senior international team - and the connectivity between the two squads is massive.

“In camp, players will be exposed to the critical differences between what they experience day in, day out with their clubs and what they can expect as England internationals.

"For some of these players, the chance to represent the senior side may come at this year’s World Cup, for others it might be 2025.”
