Gareth Ellis: Named in 21-man squad

Sky Bet

England forward Gareth Ellis has been named in a preliminary 21-man squad for Saturday's Gillette Four Nations final against Australia at Elland Road.

The Wests Tigers second rower has fully recovered from the back injury that forced him to miss last weekend's 28-6 win over New Zealand in Hull.

Garreth Carvell, who replaced Ellis in the only change to coach Steve McNamara's match-day squad during the tournament so far, has kept his place in the enlarged party.

However, it remains to be seen if the Warrington prop will still be involved when the final group of 17 is named for the contest.

The 21-man squad also includes the Leeds trio of Carl Ablett, Ryan Bailey and Danny McGuire, none of whom have made an appearance in the tournament so far.

Huddersfield centre Leroy Cudjoe, Rhinos winger Ben Jones-Bishop and Wigan hooker Michael McIlorum are the three players omitted from McNamara's 24-man set-up.

Squad: S Tomkins (Wigan), R Hall (Leeds), J Reed (Brisbane), K Yeaman (Hull), T Briscoe (Hull), K Sinfield (Leeds), R Chase (Castleford), D McGuire (Leeds), G Widdop (Melbourne), J Graham (St Helens), G Carvell (Warrington), J Roby (St Helens), J Peacock (Leeds, capt), A Morley (Warrington), R Bailey (Leeds), J Wilkin (St Helens), B Westwood (Warrington), G Ellis (Wests Tigers), C Heighington (Wests Tigers), J Jones-Buchanan (Leeds), C Ablett (Leeds).
