England recall Leeds' Myler after six years


Richie Myler trained with England in Manchester on Sunday

England have called up Leeds Rhinos scrum-half Richie Myler for the autumn internationals against France and New Zealand.

The 28-year-old replaces Castleford’s Luke Gale, who withdrew from the squad with a knee injury.

Myler has six international caps but has not played for England since 2012.

England play France in Manchester on Wednesday before the three-match series against New Zealand starts on 27 October.

Six uncapped players from the England Knights squad have also been called up for the France Test, including Myler’s Leeds team-mates Ash Handley and Liam Sutcliffe.

They are joined by Castleford’s Oliver Holmes, Hull FC’s Jamie Shaul, Robbie Mulhern of Hull KR and Widnes Vikings’ Matt Whitley.
