PROP Epalahame Lauaki was today called-up into the Exiles squad after six players withdrew from the squad – including two of his Warriors team-mates.

Centre George Carmont and stand-off Brett Finch pulled out after picking up minor injuries in Saturday’s 36-14 win at Catalan.

Tongan front-rower Lauaki joins his Wigan peers Jeff Lima and Thomas Leuluai in the Exiles, a team comprised of Super League’s best overseas players.

Wigan’s Sean O’Loughlin, Sam Tomkins, Lee Mossop, Gareth Hock and Josh Charnley are in England’s squad for Saturday’s match at St Helens’ Langtree Park.

As well as Finch and Carmont, the other withdrawals are: Louis Anderson (Catalan), Luke O’Donnell (Huddersfield),Lopini Paea (Catalan) Michael Monaghan (Warrington).
