Joe Westerman and Gareth Widop have been added to England preparing for the World Cup

Wakefield Loose Forward Joe Westerman and Warrington Halfback Gareth Widop It was recalled by Shaun Wane’s England national team preparing for the end of the season World Cup.

Westerman won his only previous cap against Samoa in 2014, but this year, as did Widdop, who was a regular in England under former coaches Steve McNamara and Wayne Bennett. It’s an outstanding shape for his club.

The 31-year-old Westerman case was pushed by his coach, Chris Chester, when Wayne visited the Wakefield Club this week.

“Joe has been playing the best rugby I’ve seen from him for a long time,” Chester said.

Wakefield teammate Reese Line, along with former Catalans Dragons wigan winger Tom Davies, will call Wayne as he expands his elite training team to 38.

But Hull’s versatile back Jake Connor, in good shape, can’t remember facing fierce competition for the full-back role from Sam Tomkins and Zak Hardaker.

Wayne said: Super League Games, weekly, and doors are always open to playing players.

“I’ve been impressed with what these four players have seen in the last few weeks, and the data about them confirms that.

“They have always reached the highest level of performance required.”

Hull Center’s Josh Griffin remains in the team, although he is unlikely to be available after undergoing surgery for an Achilles tendon rupture this week.

Wayne will announce his team next Wednesday for the England match against the Combined Nations All-Stars at Halliwell Jones Stadium in Warrington on Friday, June 25th.
