NEW Wigan signing Scott Taylor and Jack Hughes have been named in the England Knights team to face Ireland in Belfast on Saturday.

England Knights coach Kieron Purtill has named a 19-man squad for the match.

Purtill’s side will be captained by Hull FC’s Danny Houghton while 2012 Stobart Super League Grand Finalists Chris Riley, Mike Cooper, Ben Jones-Bishop and Shaun Lunt are amongst the likely starters.

“We’ve got a strong squad available and we’re putting pressure on ourselves to win and ensure we keep the legacy of previous Knights teams going,” said Purtill.
