His Wolves team-mate Brett Hodgson played at full back, and he has this season been named as captain for the Exiles, who will be coached by Daniel Anderson in 2012.
Monaghan added: “It has been talked about a lot in training. Warrington has a lot of England lads and obviously Brett Hodgson is Exiles captain so he’s excited.
“We expect to win, although half of the Exiles team from last year play for England now!
“Both teams are full of quality it’ll be a good match-up. It’s good for England and Steve McNamara will be happy with the extra-game. It is important for England to play high-standard international matches.”
