England Knights squad for Jamaica clash revealed

Former Super League Champion and League Leaders’ Shield winning coach Paul Anderson has named his England Knights squad ahead of their clash with Jamaica.

The game will be held at Castleford Tigers’ Mend-A-Hose on Friday 15th October in a game dedicated to Jordan Turner in his testimonial season.

Anderson, who is also Warrington Under-19s coach, has named a number of Warrington’s impressive youngsters making them the joint most represented side in the squad along with Leeds and Wigan with four players named meaning that all three clubs can look ahead to a bright future.

Interestingly, 17-year-old Levi Edwards is named in the squad despite not yet playing a minute of Super League. The young Rhino did impress on loan at Batley this year and joins fellow teenage Rhino Morgan Gannon as well as Tom Holroyd and Jack Broadbent from Headingley.

Two reigning Champions also feature in the shape of Lewis Dodd and Matty Lees. The duo helped St Helens to a third consecutive title last night and are joined by fellow Saint Aaron Smith.

Mikey Lewis’ terrific season with Hull KR is rewarded with a place in the squad along with teammate George Lawler. Interestingly, Lawler is headed to Castleford next year so should get a good taste for his new home here.

Teenage sensation Will Pryce also feature alongside teammate Matty English.
