The former Halifax and Castleford front rower last played for Wales in 2007, and he is looking forward to getting back into action in a red shirt.
“It’s good to be back, I’m enjoying it, the boys seem close and it’s a good team spirit,” he said.
“There’s no cliques and all seems good.”
“Work commitments kept me out for the first couple of weeks,” the 30-year-old explained.
“My wife and I went on holiday after our league season finished as we couldn’t do that at any other point then I would have liked to have come into camp straight away, but the senior position I have in my work meant that I was unable to.
“However I have been able to get this week off and I hope to be playing on Sunday.
“Hopefully I’ll be playing for Wales for a few more years. I’ve a few more years yet in my career.”
