How England could be in the World Cup Finals
1. Sam Tomkins
Tomkins is set to be England’s number one in the world, having captained his country in their latest 18-4 victory over the United Nations All-Star.
The 33-year-old former Man of Steel has been in great shape with the Catalan Dragons this season. With over 300 career games under his belt, Tomkins will bring a wealth of experience to Shawn Wayne’s team this fall.

2. Tommy Mackinson
McKinson has been a standout winger in the Premier League for several years now. The St Helens winger is currently leading the way for points in the Premier League this season.
McKinson only made his England debut in 2018, so he could make his World Cup debut this year.
3. Herbie Farnworth
The Brisbane Broncos center has been sidelined with a biceps injury since June, but England are hoping he will be available to play at the World Cup.
Lancashire-born Farnworth scored 19 attempts in 53 games for the Broncos. It would be a huge boost for England if he comes back in time for the World Cup.
4. Harry Newman
Newman has already played more than 50 games for Leeds despite being just 22 years old.
He has won international titles with the Knights of England, but has yet to make his debut. Could that come at this year’s World Cup?
5. Ryan Hall
Hall is one of the most experienced players in this squad, having made 38 caps for England, scoring 35 attempts.
The 34-year-old Hull KR winger could play in the World Cup Finals for the third time at the end of the year.

6. Johnny Lomax
Lomax has been a mainstay at St Helens since its inception in 2009. The three-time Grand Final winner scored 121 attempts in 286 matches for Saints.
Lomax played 11 caps for Great Britain and England. He played in the last World Cup in 2017.
7. George Williams
Is this the time for Williams to shine in the England shirt? He has been with the England national team and around it since 2015, winning 11 international matches.
The half-back from Warrington is a constant threat to opponents’ defenses with his tricky moves. It will be key if England are to have a successful World Cup campaign.
8. Luke Thompson
Thompson has admired the NRL since moving to the Canterbury Bulldogs in 2020.
The 27-year-old will play in his first World Cup finals this year. He won two Premier League titles with St Helens.
9. James Ruby
The St Helen legend had already announced his international retirement last September after the World Cup was postponed for a year.
But his exceptional level of performance has been maintained at club level, although 2022 is expected to be his last season as a player.
There has been a lot of talk about Robbie returning to the England fold to play in the World Cup. Still one of the best prostitutes in the world.

10. Tom Burgess
Burgess has enjoyed an exceptional career thus far. He played two seasons in the Premier League with Bradford before joining the South Sydney Rabbits, where he has since made over 200 appearances.
The 30-year-old has made 25 caps for his country and will play in the World Cup finals for the third time this year.
11. Elliot Whitehead
Bradfordian Whitehead has been a mainstay in the England camp since his international debut in 2014. He was also part of Team Great Britain in 2019.
The Canberra Raiders striker will bring plenty of experience to Wayne’s side, having made more than 350 appearances.
12. John Bateman
Batman is a player who has succeeded in both hemispheres. The Bradfordian has won two Premier League titles, the World Club Challenge and the Challenge Cup with Wigan.
The 28-year-old has played 17 caps for England and four for Great Britain.
13. Victor Radley
Sydney-born Radley pledged allegiance to England before the World Cup because he wanted to represent his father Nigel, who is from Sheffield.
The 24-year-old has sacrificed playing for State of Origin and for Australia by advertising for England. Radley plays with a lot of passion and desire, and will undoubtedly fit in with Wayne’s style.
14. Mickey McClurum
McClurum could play in his fourth World Cup Finals this fall. He has represented his Irish legacy in two tournaments and could play in his second in England this year.
There’s no secret that Wayne is a huge fan of Wigan’s former prostitute McClurum. The Catalan Dragons star played in England’s latest win over the United Nations All-Star.
15. Alex Walmsley
We only put Walmsley on the bench in our squad because of the impact he can have when he comes halfway through matches when the opponent is tired.
The 6-foot-5, 18-piece stone powerhouse developed into a cult champion in his 10 seasons at St Helens, winning four Premier League titles and a Challenge Cup.
16. Morgan Knowles
Barrow-born Knowles played for Wales at the World Cup in 2017. He represented his Welsh ancestry, qualifying at the expense of his Ronda-born mother.
But the St. Helen striker switched his allegiance to become his native England in 2020. He made his England debut the following year against the United Nations All-Star.
The beauty of having Knowles on the bench is his ability to play anywhere in the front group. He can even play as a prostitute if necessary.

17. Matty Liz
Last place on the bench goes to Lis, who has matured into one of the Premier League’s top rowers in recent years.
Lees may only be 24 years old, but he’s won three major finals as well as played over 100 games for champion St. Helens. The Rochdale-born striker made his England debut earlier this year,
