Milner in England Squad
Posted: Thursday 1st November 2018 - 10:00 AM
Castleford Tigers star Adam Milner has been named in Wayne Bennett’s England side for the second test against New Zealand.
Milner comes into the side after a calf injury to captain Sean O’Loughlin has forced the Wigan loose forward out of action.
The 26-year old came through the youth ranks at Castleford making his first team debut back in 2010 against Huddersfield Giants. The loose forward has gone on to play over 200 appearances for the Tigers and recently signed a new three-year deal with Castleford ending speculation that he was bound for the NRL.
England came out victorious in the first test with a 18-16 win at the KCOM Stadium in Hull and will now head to Anfield in Liverpool in hopes of sealing a series victory.
James Graham will replace O'Loughlin as captain for the second test. The 33-year old prop made his 42 international appearance at the KCOM in the first test.
