Sibbit and Wood Selected for the 'A'
Paul Wood and Ian Sibbit have been named in the England 'A' squad for this Autumn's representative honours.
Ian Sibbit, 22 returned to the Wolves this season after spending a year in the NRL competition with Melbourne Storm.
Both Wood and Sibbit have worked their way through the structure at Warrington since joining the Academy in 1998. Wood has made 13 appearances for the club this season scoring 2 tries while teammate Sibbit has made 14 appearances scoring 4 tries.
Paul Wood commented on his selection,"I'm really pleased to get a call up for the second year, it was something that I was aiming for this season. Last year I didn't make the final cut which was very disappointing, so this year I am aiming to make it into the 17."
Ian Sibbit was delighted with his selection, "It is an honour to be selected in the A side, it will be my first international honour if I make it through to the final cut, which is what I am aiming to do."
Head Coach Paul Cullen commented, "It rewards both players for their efforts so far this season and encourages other Warrington players that they are also in consideration. There is along way to go from now to November, this is all about who can have a crack at the Aussies via GB or England."
