FORMER Warriors star Joel Tomkins has been called-up to the senior England rugby union squad.

Head coach Stuart Lancaster announced today Tomkins, Tom Johnson (Exeter Chiefs), Harry Trinder (Gloucester) and Luther Burrell (Northampton Saints) are in the squad for this autumn’s QBE Internationals.

Tomkins left Wigan at the end of the 2011 Super League season having won a Grand Final in 2010 and a Challenge Cup in 2011, contributing to the triumph with one of the Cup Final’s most memorable tries.

This year’s series sees England take on New Zealand, Argentina and Australia at Twickenham in November.
