Leeds Rhinos star Richie Myler admits he is enjoying being back in the international fold after gaining his seventh England cap in the 44-6 win over France at Leigh.

Myler was in impressive form, particularly in the first half for England, earning praise from coach Wayne Bennett for his organising and talking to the squad throughout the game.

Speaking after the match, Myler said the night had been special for him. He commented, “I was really pleased. In the first half we were very clinical and got the job done to a certain extent. We knew it would be tough to keep that up but overall we were pretty pleased with the win.

“I have been around this environment before but I was excited about playing again as the kick off came closer. I was looking forward to getting out there and we got the right result.  There are some great players in the squad and we have only really had a couple of days together in terms of field sessions. It is a good platform for us to build on. We managed to blow the cobwebs off and we will certainly be better for having had this game,” added Myler.

The half back added, “That is my role and that is the job I am out there to do. I’m not the biggest but I try to be the loudest and that helps me along. As much as I can add to the team, that is what I want to do. If that means I am good enough to stay in for the next game, that would be great, but I will continue to work as hard as I can for the team. There is a lot of quality in that dressing room and we are all going for the same goal. It is good to be back in the fold and have the chance to pull that shirt on.
“There is a lot of competition. Everyone is a quality player, otherwise they wouldn’t be here. Whoever goes in will play well and I am excited to be here. It is nice recognition for the year I have had at Leeds and I am enjoying it,” added Myler.
