"This is a fantastic honour for me to be selected for Lancashire during my testimonial year at Warrington. It gives me another shirt to auction off at one of my dinners!!

It is always good to play alongside the top players from other clubs, it is an opportunity to gauge my ability and I am looking forward to working under Paul Cullen at this level."
Warrington Wolves and Lancashire Origin Coach believes that Mark has worked hard to gain his place, "Mark backs up last year's selection and performance and his inclusion this year is a result of his consistency and progression. He offers the steel that we need to out muscle the Yorkshire pack."
