Sam Tomkins has been ruled out of England’s final Test against New Zealand on Sunday with a broken hand.

Leeds half-back Richie Myler replaces Tomkins, who sustained the injury during England’s series-clinching 20-14 win at Anfield on Sunday.

Stefan Ratchford replaces Warrington team-mate Daryl Clark on the bench after the hooker injured a rib.

Meanwhile, captain Sean O’Loughlin has failed to recover from a calf injury he aggravated in the first Test.

Tomkins, 29, said he has had an amazing year after adding a Test series win to Grand Final success with Wigan Warriors.

“Thanks to all the Wigan and England fans for your support,” said Tomkins,
