Four Giants included in Knights squad
Four Huddersfield Giants players have been included in the England Knights squad, as selected by head coach Paul Anderson ahead of forthcoming autumn internationals against France B in Bordeaux on Sunday 2 October and Scotland in Edinburgh on Saturday 8.
The 21 players are drawn from nine Betfred Super League clubs – testimony to the strength of the development systems now in place at club level.
Huddersfield Giants’ Owen Trout played in the England Academy team which defeated the touring Australian Schoolboys 2-0 in 2018, while English & Pryce have been named in previous England Knights Squads.
England Knights Head Coach Paul Anderson says:
I’m proud that so many of these players have come through the England performance pathway and that is also a real credit to the development systems in place at the clubs themselves. Travelling to France and then Scotland in the space of a week is exactly the sort of experience we want to give these players to prepare them for the different challenges of international rugby, especially with an eye on the 2025 World Cup in France.”
