JAMES NAMES 20 FOR ENGLAND FRIENDLY

Paul James has selected a 20-strong squad to play for an England Select team against Scotland Select on Saturday 12 May.

The friendly, at the NIA, Birmingham at 12:30pm, is a precursor to the BBL play-off Final.

The final selection of the team will depend on which BBL teams are playing at the NIA that weekend but it includes three full Great Britain caps as well as a number of players who have previously featured for England in non-competitive internationals.

Andy Wedemire insists he’d be delighted to pass up on earning his England debut if it means Glasgow Rocks are in with a shout of lifting the BBL play-off title.

The Canadian-born centre was a surprise inclusion after team chiefs discovered his father comes from Coventry.

But Wedemire says he would gladly ditch the Three Lions if the Rocks have an alternative engagement in the season finale.

He said: “The championship is my number one priority and that’s the game I’d really love to be involved in that day. And I admit I’m not too sure what to expect from the England set-up. Three of my team-mates here are in the Scotland squad so it would be strange to go up against them. But it’s a new opportunity if it happens.”

Squad:

Jamell Anderson, Leicester Riders
Devan Bailey, Mersey Tigers
Sam Cricelli, Mersey Tigers
Darius Defoe, Newcastle Eagles
Paul Elderkin, Durham Wildcats
