South Sydney grand final stars George and Tom Burgess headline England’s Four Nations squad.
Canterbury gun James Graham will link up with the Burgess brothers in a squad that includes fellow NRL players Sam Tomkins, Mike Cooper and Gareth Widdop.
Wigan star Shaun O’Loughlin will succeed Keith Senior as captain of the team.
England coach Steve McNamara said that he hoped his squad could win its first major tournament in Australasia in 24 years.
“We spent a long time selecting this squad and there were some close calls with a lot of competition for places,” McNamara said.
“But ultimately we chose the players who will give us the best chance of winning a major tournament in Australasia for the first time since 1990, when Great Britain defeated New Zealand.
“We have a tremendous challenge in front of us but I know the players have the desire, appetite and quality to do English Rugby League proud in this tournament.”
