England Rugby League: Unveiling the One-Cap Wonders of the National Team

England’s Rugby League Squad Primed for New Faces

England’s Rugby League squad could see several new faces earn their first international caps this weekend, as they take on France in Toulouse. This group will join an esteemed list of players who have earned a single appearance for the national team, many of whom have impressive resumes representing Great Britain.

Jamie Shaul, the Hull FC standout, made his lone England appearance back in 2018, featuring in an end-of-season Test against France. Winger Tom Davies, who had previously earned two caps for the England Knights, finally received his first senior England call-up in 2021, scoring a try in his solitary outing against France.

Legendary figures like Neil Fox and Alan Hunte, who represented Great Britain extensively, also have one England cap to their name, with Fox’s coming in a 1962 victory over France and Hunte’s in a 1992 win over Wales. Other one-cap wonders include cult hero Henderson Gill, former Oldham boss Mike Ford, and Super League stalwart Shaun Lunt, who earned his sole England appearance in the 2010 Four Nations.

“The likes of Danny Brough, Lee Crooks, Barrie McDermott, Doug Laughton, Derek Turner, and Don Fox complete this stellar lineup of players who have represented England just once, cementing their place in the national team’s roll of honour.”
