Goulding in for Edwards

Shaun Edwards' international career is far from over, despite his omission from the England squad for the European Championship match against France.

The Wigan captain and scrum-half has lost his place for the game at Gateshead on 12 June to Bobbie Goulding of St Helens. "Shaun is still in the frame, and with the Great Britain tour coming up he's going to be one of the players very much in contention," Phil Larder, the England coach, said.

Warrington yesterday placed their former New Zealand Test player Kelly Shelford on the transfer list at pounds 150,000 as a disciplinary measure. Warrington alleged that Shelford made himself unavailable for the second half after being temporarily substituted at half-time against Sheffield Eagles on Sunday.
