St Helens star Willie Manu is expected to play a leading role for Tonga at this year’s tournament, having earned a reputation as one of Super League’s most explosive attacking players.
England coach Steve McNamara says his players have a real hunger to beat the Exiles, in next month's International Origin match at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
Wigan and England winger Josh Charnley says he’s eager to prove he’s more than just a try scorer ahead of a potential World Cup bow this Autumn.
Steve McNamara believes England's rugby league side are in the best shape possible as they bid for World Cup glory on home soil later this year.
