His call-up crowns an excellent couple of months for the youngster, who has been handed a full-time Super League contract from 2008.

The first will takes place on November 23 at Halliwell Jones Stadium, Warrington, with the second game on November 30 at Belle Vue, Wakefield.

Before then, Lawrence still has his commitments with the Giants, which continue tonight with the re-arranged trip to Warrington Wolves (7.30)

Giants: Robinson; Lopag, Lawrence, Worthington, Lyons; Broady, Barber; Thomas, Firm, Roberts, Dewhirst, Gorman, Chappell. Subs (from): Williams, Talbot, Prendergast, Pearson, Brown.
