England report clean bill of health
England coach Steve McNamara has confirmed a clean bill of health for his squad going into this weekendâ€™s International Origin opener against the Exiles at Langtree Park on Saturday, kick off 6.45pm.
The vast majority of the squad reported to the teamâ€™s Loughborough headquarters on Monday, with the exception of the Wigan Warriors contingent who are returning from France after victory over Catalan Dragons at the weekend and the Huddersfield Giantsâ€™ trio Danny Brough, Eorl Crabtree and Leroy Cudjoe who are in Stobart Super League action against Hull KR this evening at the Galpharm Stadium.
â€śAll the players, with the exception of the Huddersfield boys, who play tonight, have come through without any problems from the weekendâ€™s matches,â€ť said McNamara.
â€śIt is pleasing that we have a healthy group throughout the week and we can select from a full strength squad.â€ť
Meanwhile, Hull FC hooker Danny Houghton has withdrawn from the England Knights squad for family reasons and the Knights medical team will assess St Helensâ€™ Jonny Lomax after the half back sustained a shoulder injury in Saints 54-0 victory over Bradford Bulls last Friday.
