Myler sets sights on England spot

New Leeds Rhinos half-back Richie Myler admits he has not given up hope of playing for England again in 2018.

The 27-year-old has started a new chapter in his career after deciding to leave Catalans Dragons at the end of last season.

The former Warrington Wolves star is currently out of the first-team picture with England, with Luke Gale, Kevin Brown, Gareth Widdop and George Williams all ahead of him in the pecking order.

Myler, who made his England debut at the age of 18, is confident he can force his way into Wayne Bennett's plans by having a good debut season for the Rhinos.

He told the Yorkshire Evening Post: "As a whole the depth England rugby league has got is great for the country, but it’s all hypothetical for me at the moment.

"My main focus is Leeds, coming into a new team, and I’ve got a big job to do. I’m lucky and fortunate this team is blessed with so many stars really.

"Obviously I would love to play for my country again. My first major focus is coming in here now and getting the best out of myself and this team.

"I know my task is a big one here at the moment at Leeds. That’s a challenge in itself and if anything comes down the line (with England) then great."
