Quartet added to England training squad


England head coach Shaun Wane has added another four players to his training squad ahead of Tuesday’s squad session at Leeds Beckett University.

Huddersfield prop Matty English and centre Jake Wardle have been called up, along with Leeds front rower Mikolaj Oledzki and hooker Kruise Leeming to prepare for England’s mid-season international against the Combined Nations All Stars at Warrington on June 25.

They join the 35-strong squad Wane named a week ago, 200 days out from England’s opening World Cup game against Samoa at St James’s Park, Newcastle.

Seven of his 35 are based in Australia and, with several more unable to take part in his first training session because of injury, Wane has taken the opportunity to introduce more players to the England training environment.

Leeming, English and Oledzki have all played for the England Knights.
