Lomax out of England side

St Helens half-back Jonny Lomax has been ruled out of England’s Gillette Four Nations squad on medical grounds.

The 21-year-old, who was named in Steve McNamara’s initial squad on Monday, has torn ankle ligaments sustained in the weekend’s Engage Super League Grand Final defeat to Leeds Rhinos. Lomax will now require surgery.

Leeds Rhinos stand-off Danny McGuire has been called into the squad and will report, along with the rest of the players, to England’s training camp in Loughborough on Wednesday.
