Paul Anderson wants more tours for England Knights

Paul Anderson said England Knights’ tour of Papua New Guinea was an unforgettable one.

The Knights, who had won in the opening game in Lae 16-12, fell short to a 32-22 defeat in Port Moresby in their final game on Saturday.

England’s second-string team were brought back together this year for the first time since 2013, and Anderson wants to see more international opportunities for the Knights.

He said: “This tour was about exposing a group of our young players to something completely different, out of their comfort zone.

“The more we do this, the more we can expose our players to these environments, the better our players will be.

“The last two weeks for me has been two of the best of my career, in regards to enjoyment levels.”

The Knights will head home via Brisbane, and will attend next Sunday’s third and final Test between England and New Zealand at Elland Road.
