THERE could be four Giants players in action in Sunday's England v New Zealand clash at Warrington (2.15).
Chris Thorman will again lead an England side including teammate Eorl Crabtree, with the two having impressed against France a fortnight ago.
And already named in the Kiwi side is new signing Robbie Paul.
But now fellow new recruit Stephen Wild, pictured, is in the England frame after being released for the weekend by Great Britain.
Former Wigan ace Wild and St Helens' Jon Wilkin were left out of the Lions side to face Australia at the JJB Stadium tomorrow night, and are in need of match practice.
And Great Britain coach Brian Noble believes Sunday is the ideal opportunity.
Playing for England will also give Wild the chance to stake a claim for a place in the Great Britain squad to face New Zealand at his new `home' at the Galpharm Stadium when the teams go head-to-head in the Tri-Nations clash on Saturday, November 12.
However, Wild and Wilkin are also needed by England coach Karl Harrison, who has been struggling to name a fit squad of 17.
Harrison lost Leeds prop Ryan Bailey from his initial 21-strong squad with a knee injury before their game against France and St Helens second rower Mike Bennett has since undergone shoulder surgery.
Warrington hooker Mark Gleeson (ankle) and St Helens winger Ade Gardner (knee) were both injured in the 22-12 win.
In their places come Salford winger David Hodgson, Warrington back row forward Ben Westwood and Leeds prop Danny Ward.
* In a further England link with Huddersfield, former Fartown doctor David Hooper has again taken up that role with the national squad throughout this series.
