Jack Welsby to become England’s youngest-ever captain
England Head Coach Shaun Wane has named his 19-strong squad to face Tonga in the opening match of a historic three-game autumn international series at St Helens' Totally Wicked Stadium this Sunday.

The side will be led by St Helens full-back and three-time Super League Dream Team player Jack Welsby – at 22 years of age England's youngest-ever captain and the first Saints player to lead England since James Graham against Australia in the 2010 Four Nations competition.

Hull KR half-back Mikey Lewis is set to make his international debut after an impressive season during which he helped the Robins reach both the Betfred Challenge Cup Final at Wembley and the Betfred Super League play-off semi-finals.

Lewis was previously part of the mid-season international squad but didn't feature back in April against France.

Well deserved. Only 22 and has achieved more than any other current English player.
Still a lot to learn but this will help in his development, he will have bad moments but he has the right temperement to ovecome adversity. He has his critics of being petulant but maybe thats more about the passion in him.
If you ignore Andy Farrell captaining England in 1996 against Wales aged 21, sure

You know what I mean :lol:
I am not disagreeing with you as such, just that they may consider them to be 'different' teams.
GB team and England team.

The epitome of the Emperor’s new clothes. Really don’t get the fascination with him.
That pass for Johnstone try was unbelievable. No other English rugby league player bar Lomax could pull that off
