Four players who have already tasted Super League action have been included in the latest England Academy squad set to face France next month. Paul Anderson’s 21-man group features a host of young talents tipped for bright futures by their respective clubs.

Notable Names in the Squad

Among the notable names are Hull FC’s Jack Charles, Wigan Warriors’ Jack Farrimond, and Warrington Wolves’ Arron Lindop and Cai Taylor-Wray – all of whom have already made their senior debuts in Super League this season.
