Josh Hodgson: 'I was shocked to get England call'

Josh Hodgson reveals that he was "shocked" by his England call-up for the Four Nations campaign.

Hull KR hooker Josh Hodgson has revealed that he is relishing the chance to represent England at the Four Nations.

The 24-year-old, who will move to the Canberra Raiders after the tournament, has secured a place in Steve McNamara's squad after the withdrawals of James Roby and Michael McIlorum.

"I was a bit shocked, to be honest. It's a tough spot to get in is hooker - there's some fantastic English hookers in the league," Hodgson told Sky Sports News.

"I'm sure there are six or seven that could do a good job internationally so I'm honoured to be part of such a great squad.

"I'm not going to worry too much about who's not in the squad. Everything happens for a reason - I'm a big believer in that."

England begin their Four Nations campaign against Samoa next Saturday.
