England Knights ready for French challenge 

Saints Jon Bennison is named in the 20-player England Knights squad ahead of Saturday’s international against France B in Bordeaux.

Jack Broadbent, Tyler Dupree, Harvie Hill and Jake Wardle are added to the 21 named last week, while John Bateman, Sam Halsall, Kai Pearce-Paul, Oli Partington and Morgan Smithies all miss out through injury or suspension.

Dupree becomes the second Salford Red Devils player, alongside Deon Cross, to earn international recognition at the end of a successful season for the Red Devils in which they reached the Betfred Super League Play-off Semi-finals.

Wardle, who spent much of 2022 on loan at Warrington Wolves from Huddersfield Giants, made a try-scoring debut for England’s senior side against the Combined Nations All Stars in June.

Broadbent, on loan at Featherstone Rovers from Leeds Rhinos in 2022, marked his England Knights debut in 2021 with two tries in a 56-4 win for Paul Anderson’s side against Jamaica.

And following a promising season at Wigan Warriors, Hill was recently named in the Cumbria squad to take on Jamaica in a World Cup warm-up match next month.
