BULLS youngster Cobi Green has been rewarded for some impressive displays for the reserves with a call-up to the Wales train-on squad.

The 20-year-old is one of three Bradford players selected in the 35-man group along with fit-again Rhys Evans and Dalton Grant.

Half-back Green, who made his senior debut for Bulls in the 1895 Cup at Barrow, will hope to make his international debut as Wales prepare for October's inaugural World Cup Nines in Sydney and the 2020 European Championship, with an eye on the next World Cup.

London Broncos centre Elliot Kear has been re-appointed as captain for the next two years.

The 30-year-old former Bulls player led Wales to the runners-up spot in the 2018 European Championship that secured their place at the 2021 World Cup.

The squad includes winger Regan Grace and loose forward Morgan Knowles from Super League leaders St Helens and Wigan prop Ben Flower, who won the last of his 17 caps in the 2013 World Cup, as well as six uncapped players.

Wales coach John Kear, also in charge at the Bulls, said: "We had a really positive international campaign last year and it was great to see a young, hungry Welsh side performing well.

"It's really important that we spend time together and continue to develop so that's the reason we've formed this elite group.

"As well as meeting up each autumn for international fixtures, we're going to be spending a lot more time with each other as a group for team-building exercises.

"We already have a number of players who are performing well at the top level, but we have plenty of talent and potential throughout the squad.

"I'm really excited to see how this talented squad develops over the next couple of years as we build towards the 2021 World Cup."

Other uncapped players along with Green are Caleb Aekins (Penrith), Luis Roberts (Salford), Lewis Hall (Warrington) and Matthew Morgan and Liam Rice-Wilson (West Wales).
