Chris Bailey and Antonio Kaufusi have been named in the 27-man Exiles squad in the 2013 International Origin Match against England at The Halliwell Jones Stadium, Warrington, on Friday June 14. Kaufusi played in the two Exiles games last season while Bailey has been called up to the squad for the first time.
London Broncos head coach Tony Rea said: “I’m really delighted for them. Selection in any team is exactly that, they’ve been selected to be the best out of a group of people. They compete in a good elite competition and the reason they’ve been selected is that they’ve shown the attributes and performance levels needed and I’m sure they appreciate that."
The Exiles will be coached by former Leeds Rhinos and New Zealand Warriors coach Brian McClennan, who coached the Rhinos to Super League Grand Final success in 2008 and 2009. “I had a great time coaching the Exiles two years ago and I’m looking forward to replicating the spirit we had in camp in 2011,”said McClennan.
