Rugby League World Cup: Jermaine McGillvary in England squad vs France | Other | Sport


Half back Kevin Brown, centre Mark Percival and forwards Mike McMeeken and Scott Taylor have yet to play in the Rugby League World Cup.

But they are all expected to start, or be on the bench, for the final group game in Perth.

Winger McGillvary is also named in the predicted starting 13 even though he faces a disciplinary hearing on Wednesday.

The Huddersfield star is facing a possible ban after being accused of biting by Lebanon skipper Robbie Farah.

England’s only other winger Ryan Hall is expected to be rested, although that could change depending on the hearing.

England’s top tackler Elliott Whitehead, Chris Heighington and Kallum Watkins also drop out.

Bennett, however, controversially made late changes to the 17-man squad he announced last week for the Lebanon game.

So, apart from the McGillvary situation, there is no guarantee that the controversial coach will stick with his latest plans.

England team vs France:

Widdop, Ratchford, Percival, Bateman, McGillvary; Brown, Gale; Hill, Roby, Graham, Currie, McMeeken, O’Loughlin. Subs: Walmsley, Taylor, Williams, Burgess.
