SIX Wigan players were today named in the England elite training squad.

Gareth Hock has been recalled and Lee Mossop and Josh Charnley have been promoted from the second-string Knights set-up.

There are also places for Sean O’Loughlin, Sam Tomkins and MIke McIlorum.

The surprise inclusion in the 32-man panel is Catalan hooker Ian Henderson, who was born in Torquay but raised in Australia.

Castleford’s Kiwi-born Rangi Chase keeps his place, but coach Steve McNamara has not included any of their NRL-based players.

England will face the Exiles in two matches this year before an end-of-season series against Wales and France.

Liam Farrell is the sole Warrior in the Knights set-up.
