Tomkins anticipates Exiles encounter
England star Sam Tomkins is excited by the prospect of taking on some familiar figures when they face the Exiles on Saturday.
The Origin clash at Langtree Park will see head coach Steve McNamara and his men take on the best foreign players in the Super League, in the first of two encounters.
Tomkins has been a stand-out performer for Wigan Warriors once again this season and will be a key figure in the side to take on the Exiles this weekend.
The talented full-back believes there is great competition for places in the national side and is looking forward to the Origin clash at the home of St Helens.
Tomkins told Sky Sports News: "Every opportunity we get to play for England excites us as a team.
"It's going to be a tough battle on Saturday and one we're looking forward to.
"It's a competitive squad - there are a number of positions where there are two or three lads pushing for the same spot."
