Steve McNamara and Daniel Anderson have announced their squads for tomorrow's International Origin match between England and the Exiles.
England will field four deputants with Stefan Ratchford set to start as full-back, a new-look half-back combination of Matty Smith and Danny Brough, and Scott Taylor who will feature from the bench.
Jon Wilkin will captain the side after the retirment of Jamie Peacock whilst fellow forwards, Gareth Hock and Danny Tickle have pulled out due to personal reasons and injury respectivley.
McNamara said: “We have a young, hungry side that will take on the Exiles on Wednesday.
“We have made a number of changes from the first game and it is an exciting opportunity to see some real quality young players coming in and staking a claim for a regular place in the side.”
“Matty (Smith) and Danny (Brough) really excite me,” added McNamara.
“They have been in tremendous form in the Stobart Super League and I know they have the ability to step up and perform at this level. They will complement each other’s skills and can form a devastating partnership.”
The Exiles have named two new players differing from the preliminary squad announced last week after the call-ups of Hull KR duo, Constantine Mika and Lincoln Withers.
Exiles boss, Daniel Anderson said: “We have some different players with a different style this time. Some not as high profile, but players on the rise. Players like Con Mika and Lincoln Withers have been journeymen and talismanic figures in Super League, so it’s good for them to get a bit of recognition.
“We have a couple of changes in the outside backs. Joel Moon comes in, which is good because we can move Sia Soliola back to the forwards which I think is his best position and we have a new stand-off in Dan Holdsworth and a new hooker in Heath L’Estrange."
