FIVE players from Saints Academy have been called up to the England squad for 2011.
Danny Yates; Danny Jones; Greg Wilde; Jordan Case and Josh Jones will form part of the elite performance programme which begins in January.
Head of Youth, Mike Rush, said: “It has long been a policy of the Saints to develop homegrown talent into players who are capable of competing not only in Super League but on the world stage.
“We’re delighted and proud that these players have been recognised for their efforts and we hope they will continue to improve.”
Neil Kilshaw, Player Performance Manager added: “These players have worked very hard to give themselves a chance of selection and should be congratulated. “It is also testament to the hard work of the staff that Saints continue to produce players that are consistently recognised for their country.”
