Wakefield Wildcats youngster Kieran Holt has been named in the England Youth squads to take on Wales this Easter by coach Dave Elliott.

Kieran Holt has been selected in the England Youth squad.

The Youth side will renew their traditional Easter rivalry with France when they travel across the channel for a two-test series which begins on Friday April 6, with the second test to be played on Tuesday April 10 while a second Youth side will take on Wales on Wednesday April 4.

“Both sets of players have big tests coming up and they’ll be presented with different types of challenges,” said Elliott.

“We know the French side will be physical and their age groups always give us a strong test and Wales will put up a big fight as well so this is a fantastic opportunity for these lads to experience what it’s like to play in an international game.

“There are a lot of newcomers to the international environment in this squad so we’re keen to see how they respond to the challenges put in front of them. We’ve got a lot of talented players at our disposal and we’re confident that they can get the results.”
