Jamaica name World Cup squad with England implications & include Huddersfield Giants and ex-Leeds Rhinos stars

It’s that time of year when teams are naming their squads for the Rugby League World Cup.

England’s squad will be revealed on Friday, nut there has been a hint at someone who could feature in it by omission from the squad Jamaica have named today.

Former Huddersfield Giants outside back Dominic Young has been tearing it up in the NRL for Newcastle Knights in 2022 scoring tries for fun and was expected to represent Jamaica in the World Cup.

However, there is no place for him in the squad suggesting that he has been selected by Shaun Wane for England.

However, there are still plenty of notable stars in the Jamaica squad including highly thought off ex-Leeds backrow and Bradford star AJ Wallace who is reportedly being chased by Super League clubs.

Meanwhile, Huddersfield trio Ash Golding, Michael Lawrence and Kieran Rush have also been named.

A former two-time Super League Champion also features in Ben Jones-Bishop. The former Rhinos won two Grand Finals with Leeds before spells at Salford and Wakefield. Now at Sheffield he is joined by brother Aaron who plays for Cornwall.

Here’s the squad in full:

Greg Johnson (Batley Bulldogs), AJ Wallace (Bradford Bulls), Aaron Jones-Bishop (Cornwall RLFC), Ross Peltier, Keenen Tomlinson (Dewsbury Rams), Chevaughn Bailey, Khamisi Mckain, Andrew Simpson, Marvin Thompson, Renaldo Wade (Duhaney Park Red Sharks), James Woodburn-Hall (Halifax Panthers) Ashton Golding, Michael Lawrence, Kieran Rush (Huddersfield Giants), Bradley Ho, Mo Agoro, (Keighley Cougars), Abevia McDonald (London Skolars) Joel Farrell, Ben Jones-Bishop (Sheffield Eagles), Joe Brown, Alex Young (Workington Town), Jacob Ogden (York City Knights), Jordan Andrade, Jy-Mel Coleman (Unattached).
