England’s Rugby League World Cup stars are returning to training after Christmas and deserved time off.
England scrum-half George Williams returned to Warrington Wolves this week.
Up for the Golden Boot, Williams was outstanding for England after he battled hard in a difficult season for the Wolves as they finished 11th last season.
He scored three tries and notched 13 try assists in the tournament whilst averaging 101 metres per game.
Williams was also named in the Team of the Tournament at scrum-half ahead of the likes of Nathan Cleary and Jahrome Hughes and subsequently stirred up interest from NRL clubs as consequence.
Like Williams, Chris Hill has returned to training for Huddersfield Giants this week after shining for England in the World Cup.
England’s number 18 was outstanding in the tournament scoring tries, making metres and being at the core of a strong England performance.
He also equalled the record for the most ever World Cup appearances in the semi-final against Samoa but missed out on the record out right when they lost at the Emirates.
