WAKEFIELD Trinity Wildcats skipper Glenn Morrison has been named in the Exiles squad that will take on England in the inaugural International Origin Match at Headingley Carnegie on Friday, June 10.

Morrison has been selected for the 34-man Exiles squad that comprises overseas players who ply their trade in the engage Super League.

The initial Exiles squad named by coach Brian McClennan and his assistant, Castleford Tigers boss Terry Matterson, will be whittled down to a final line-up of 22 with fans getting the opportunity to vote on which players should face the English.

Morrison said: “I’m really pleased to have been included in the squad. I think the game is a great concept and I know a lot of the Aussies and Kiwis were really excited about the match and were hoping to get picked.”

Leeds Rhinos hooker Danny Buderus has been named captain of the Exiles and Wigan Warriors’ Thomas Leuluai is vice captain.
