Wales name squad to face England at Leigh

Date published: Friday, October 28, 2011

Wales have released their 19-man squad to face England in the Gillette Four Nations at Leigh Sports Village on Saturday (2.30pm).
Chris Beasley, who has an ankle injury, misses out, as do Geraint Davies, Andrew Gay, Mark Lennon and Lee Williams.
Skipper Lee Briers will make his expected return and will win his 21st cap after sitting out last Saturday’s 30-6 friendly win over Ireland at The Gnoll.
Ian Watson is in line to increase his Wales cap record to 29 should he take to the field.
Peter Lupton, Tyson Frizell and Matt Seamark could all make their second appearance after making their debuts against Ireland.
It is a strong line-up for Wales in this, their 158th full international and their first ever Gillette Four Nations game, with 11 of the squad having played in Super League or NRL last season.
Wales coach Iestyn Harris said: “It was a very difficult decision to choose the 19-man squad as last week’s game against Ireland was a very good all-round team performance. It will be even more difficult to cut two more out of the squad for Saturday.
“We’re all looking forward to the game. To open our Four Nations campaign against England in front of a full-house is a very exciting prospect.”
The 2011 Gillette Four Nations kicks off this Friday at The Halliwell Jones Stadium, Warrington which hosts Australia v New Zealand (8.00pm) with adult tickets starting from £20 and concessions £10. The tournament then moves on to Leigh Sports Village the following day, Saturday October 29, for England v Wales (2.30pm) with tickets starting from £10 for adults and £5 for concessions.
The 2011 Gillette Four Nations final will be played at Elland Road, Leeds on Saturday November 19 (6.00pm) and tickets are priced from £20 Adult and £10 concession.
