Trinity ace ready to build on England snub
Wakefield Trinity ace Tom Johnstone says he will learn from his England snub as he tries to kick on during the 2019 campaign.
The youngster was named in Wayne Bennett's England squad but then failed to make an appearance during the series with New Zealand.
St Helens' Tommy Makinson and Huddersfield's Jermaine McGillvary were given the nod on the wing as England won the series 2-1.
Johnstone, who suffered a serious knee injury 12 months ago, is confident of learning from the experience as he tries to impress Bennett next year.
He told the Yorkshire Post: "It has been a real eye-opener and a change of scenery and it was really good to be alongside some of the top people in the competition who I play against week-in, week-out.
"I want to enjoy a few weeks away from rugby and relax first, but I am really hungry and eager to get back to training and kick on and have a big year next year.
"Going from where I was 12 months ago to now is amazing and I could not be happier. I wouldn’t have expected to be in the England camp 12 months ago so to be in it and be part of what the boys have achieved is something that’s going to live with me forever. I am really happy with that."
