Saints World Cup Reps Ready For Openers

Jonny Lomax, Mark Percival, James Roby and Alex Walmsley have all been named in England’s 21 man squad for the World Cup opener with Australia.

Lomax looks set to start at fullback, with Roby and Walmsley coming off the bench.

Coach Wayne Bennett appears to have selected John Bateman ahead of Percival in the starting line-up, but the situation could be fluid up until kick off.

The game kicks off at 10am at the AAMI Park, Melbourne, on Friday.

Elsewhere, Regan Grace, Ben Morris and Morgan Knowles have been selected in the Wales team for their game with PNG (Oil Search NSF Stadium, Port Moresby, 7:30am, Saturday) whilst Kyle Amor and Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook are set to start for Ireland against Italy on Sunday (Barlow Park, Cairns, 4am).

Prop Luke Douglas has been named in the Scotland side for their match with Tonga (Barlow Park, Cairns, 6.15am, Sunday) and Theo Fages will captain France in their tie with Lebanon on Sunday (Canberra Stadium, 5am).
