Great Britain coach Brian Noble has tipped his hand adding halves Richard Horne and Iestyn Harris to his team for Saturday night's Tri Nations showdown with Australia at Wigan's JBB Stadium.
The addition of 23 year-old Hull halfback Horne for youngster Rob Burrow and the inclusion of former rugby great Harris at five-eighth suggests the Lions are looking for more out of their halves against Kangaroo debutant Scott Prince and the classy Darren Lockyer.
Prop Nick Fozzard was a casualty when Noble revealed his squad today. Vice-captain Brian Carney has been given a chance to redeem himself after his shocker against New Zealand last weekend.
Great Britain squad:
Paul Wellens Brian Carney Martin Gleeson Keith Senior Chev Walker Leon Pryce Iestyn Harris Kevin Sinfield Paul Deacon Richard Horne Adrian Morley Keiron Cunningham Micky Higham Stuart Fielden Jamie Thackray Paul Johnson Jamie Peacock (c) Lee Gilmour Gareth Ellis
