CONNOR Wrench has been called up to the England senior squad for Saturday's Test match in France.

The homegrown Warrington Wolves centre has been drafted in from the Knights squad to replace Leeds Rhinos back Harry Newman, who has suffered an injury in training.

Newman had not been due to feature in the game, with Wakefield's Reece Lyne and Wigan's Zak Hardaker named in the centres, so Wrench will act as cover in case of any more injuries.

It comes as the perfect round-off to the 20-year-old's breakthrough season, having made six first-team appearances for The Wire as well as a try-scoring England Knights debut against Jamaica last week.
