Chase, Reed and Heighington in as McNamara names unchanged England team

England coach Steve McNamara has named an unchanged team for Saturday’s Gillette Four Nations match against Wales at Leigh Sports Village.

Half-back Rangi Chase, centre Jack Reed and loose forward Chris Heighington all keep their places after making their debuts in England’s 32-18 win over France in Avignon last Friday.

“It is an opportunity for that group of players to rectify some of the errors we made in the game against France and bring in some consistency,” said McNamara.
