LUKE Thompson and Tommy Makinson are two of the new caps in England head coach Wayne Bennett's 19-man squad to take on New Zealand later this month.

They join Jonny Lomax, Mark Percival and James Roby as Saints' five-man contingent in the 19-strong squad.

Hull FC’s Jake Connor is the other uncapped player for the mid-season Test in Denver, Colorado.

Prop Thompson, was also named in the Knights Squad at the start of the year and has been one of the in-form front-rowers in the Betfred Super League leading to his first call up to the senior England squad.

Makinson will also be hoping for his first senior international cap and is one of five Saints players travelling to Denver to take on the Kiwis.

England v New Zealand will be played at the Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Denver on Saturday June 23 (Kick off: 21.10pm BST) and fans in the UK can watch live from 9pm on BBC Two.
