Gareth Hock will today be named in the new England squad. The Wigan forward returned to the game last June, after a two-year ban for testing positive for cocaine.

He was then suspended for five matches for gouging and punching. Also in Steve McNamara's squad will be James Roby, despite the knee injury he suffered in St Helens' defeat at Huddersfield on Sunday, which could keep him out for months.
