New cap Brough swaps allegiance
Danny Brough will complete his transformation from captain of Scotland to England international by playing against the Exiles on 10 June.
The Huddersfield scrum-half, who played for Scotland in the 2008 World Cup, is the only uncapped player in Steve McNamara's 22-man squad for the match at Headingley.
"He brings a lot of qualities to Huddersfield and I'm looking forward to him offering those qualities to England," said McNamara. Leeds' Jamie Peacock is a candidate for the captaincy, along with Adrian Morley and James Graham.
Meanwhile, Manly assistant coach David Penna is a surprise contender for the Salford job, and Allan Rowley has resigned as chief executive at Leigh.
England squad to play Exiles S Tomkins, J Tomkins, O'Loughlin (Wigan); Briscoe (Hull); Bridge, Morley, Westwood, Carvell, Atkins, Myler (Warrington); Shenton, Roby, Graham, Wilkin (St Helens); Hall, Sinfield, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan (Leeds); Brough, Crabtree, Robinson, Cudjoe (Huddersfield).
