Winger Tom Briscoe and his Hull team-mate Kirk Yeaman have become the 12th and 13th members of the squad following their side’s 21-4 defeat by Hull Kingston Rovers in the Engage Super League play-offs last Saturday.

The England fall-out squad in full is as follows:

Jodie Broughton (Salford City Reds)
Sam Burgess (South Sydney)
Tony Clubb (Harlequins RL)
Ben Jones Bishop (Harlequins RL)
Jamie Langley (Bradford Bulls)

Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook (Harlequins RL)
Nick Scruton (Bradford Bulls)
Michael Shenton (Castleford Tigers)
Paul Sykes (Bradford Bulls)
Joe Westerman (Castleford Tigers)
Kirk Yeaman (Hull FC)

Further players will be added to England’s fall-out squad as teams are eliminated from the Engage Super League play-offs.

Steve McNamara will announce his 24-man squad for the Four Nations at a media conference on Monday October 4.
