England international Joe Greenwood has dropped out of the Elite Training Squad and is one of six Wigan players included in the revived Knights squad.

The forward had been in Wayne Bennett's provisional squad, which will be revised later today, having featured for England in the third Test against New Zealand last autumn.

Joe Bullock, Liam Marshall, Sam Powell and injured wingers Tom Davies and Dom Manfredi are also included.

Leeds centre Harry Newman and Huddersfield forward Oliver Wilson, who were both members of the England Academy team who beat the Australian Schoolboys last autumn, are joined by London Broncos duo Jordan Abdull and Rob Butler in a revised Knights Performance Squad to prepare for this autumn’s historic international fixture against Jamaica at the Emerald Headingley Stadium.
