GB bring in Handley

Great Britain have flown Leeds winger Ash Handley out to join the Lions in camp following an injury to Ryan Hall.

Hall dislocated his knee in last week’s defeat to New Zealand, with Wayne Bennett electing to bring youngster Handley into the squad as a replacement.

According to Sky Sports, the Rhinos flyer won’t be considered to face the Kiwis this Saturday, but will come into contention to face Papua New Guinea in the final game of the tour.

“We’ve been considering our options since losing Ryan Hall last weekend and it makes sense for Ash to come out and join us in Papua New Guinea,” Great Britain tour manager Jamie Peacock said.
