Both England & England Knights performance Squads have been announced. They are.

England Elite Performance Squad.

Luke Gale, Mike McMeeken (Castleford), Jermaine McGillvary (Huddersfield), Scott Taylor (Hull FC), Ryan Hall, Stevie Ward, Kallum Watkins (Leeds), Jonny Lomax, Tommy Makinson, Mark Percival, James Roby, Alex Walmsley (St Helens), Tom Johnstone (Wakefield), Kevin Brown, Daryl Clark, Ben Currie, Chris Hill, Stefan Ratchford (Warrington), John Bateman,Sean O'Loughlin, George Williams (Wigan).

Good to see Tom Johnstone in after some decent performance's.

England Knights Performance Squad.

Greg Minikan, Jake Trueman (Castleford), Kruise Leeming (Huddersfield), Josh Bowden, Jake Connor, Dean Hadley, Masimbaashe Matongo (Hull FC), Chris Atkin (Hull KR), Liam Sutcliffe, Jack Walker (Leeds), James Cunningham (London Broncos), Joe Burgess, Tom Davies, Oliver Gildart, Sam Powell, Ryan Sutton (Wigan), Niall Evalds (Salford), Danny Richardson, Luke Thompson (St Helens), Reece Lyne (Wakefield), Jack Hughes (Warrington), Tom Gilmore, Danny Walker, Matt Whitley (Widnes).

Though no fixtures for the Knights have been formally announced . But there are talks for at least 2 games (maybe a 5 nations type competition hopefully). They will be coached by Paul Anderson.
On a side note it's good to see the Knights back. Enjoyed watching them at times, and also makes sense to me.
Hull KR the pride of East Hull.

France would be ideal opposition for the Knights.

I dislike the petulant side of Sam Tomkins, but the fact Kevin Brown is selected ahead of him is strange.
I also think Tomkins is a better full back than either Lomax or Ratchford.
Can’t see what Makinson offers either to be honest when there is Hall, McGillvary and Johnstone in the squad. If we need four wingers, I’m not sure how Makinson deserves a spot over Eden either.
Joe Wardle has had limited game-time at Cas due to injury, but for me he did more in the twenty minutes he played than McMeekan has done so far this year. Wouldn’t surprise me to see him added to the squad once he gets some game time behind him.

maybe bennett made his mind up about tomkins when he was playing in the nrl. i sat next to a souths fan at the ANZ double header and he said something along the lines of bennett will judge a player pretty quickly and then you're either a bennett type player or you're out
The referee's indecision is final

Bennet must be a secret Warrington fan, how the hell do Brown, Clark, Ratchford and Hughes get in.

Some interesting choices in the development squad, some really experienced players and then some players who had hardly played a game, players like Trueman, Atkins and Matongo must have about 20 appearances between them.

On Warrington I like Ratchford, very good player, not sure FB is his best position though, not sure which position is best for him.

Clarke is a very good as well.
