Bennett's squad to meet in April
After naming his squad, England head coach Wayne Bennett says the players will be looking forward to meeting up in April.
The 30-man squad will meet up in April and further meetings are planned later in the year but there are no games scheduled ahead of the Great Britain tour of New Zealand and Papua New Guinea later this year.
Super League's top two sides, St Helens and Warrington, each have six players included, while Castleford have four and Bennett says the players will be looking excited to join up.
"I know the guys will be looking forward to getting together again in April," Bennett said.
"We had a good year in 2018 with four wins out of five, three of them against the Kiwis."
