DANNY BROUGH has been confirmed in England’s starting line-up.
The Giants’ inspirational half back will make his England debut on his ‘home’ ground at the Galpharm Stadium tomorrow night (7.45) in the international match up against the Exiles.
Brough, who is joined in the England starting 13 by clubmates Leroy Cudjoe and Eorl Crabtree, will line-up at stand off alongside Salford City Reds’ Matty Smith in a new-look half-back partnership.
England head coach former Giants player Steve McNamara is looking forward to seeing how Brough and Smith cut it at this level forming a new half-back combination.
“Matty and Danny really excite me,” said McNamara.
“They have been in tremendous form in the Stobart Super League and I know they both have the ability to step up and perform at this level.
“They will complement each other’s skills and can form a devastating partnership.”
