Johnstone, who scored 24 tries for Wakefield in 2018, will earn his first England cap ahead of the three-test series with New Zealand.

Lyne has also been given the chance to stake his claim for a starting spot against the Kiwis as he has also been named in the starting line-up for the clash with France.

France will be warming up for their European Championship campaign where they will face Wales, Ireland and Scotland for a place at the 2021 World Cup.

The Wakefield pair are two of eight players who will make their debuts with Jamie Shaul and Oliver Holmes set to start, while Castleford's Adam Milner, Luke Thompson, Robbie Mulhern and Liam Sutcliffe have been named on the bench.
