New Zealand-born stand-off Rangi Chase pledges his international future to England.

Castleford's Rangi Chase has pledged his international future to England after being named in Steve McNamara's train-on squad for the Four Nations.

The stand-off was born in New Zealand but has never represented the Kiwis and now qualifies to feature for England on residency grounds.

"It's excellent news that Rangi wants to play for England and commit his long-term future to our international programme," McNamara said.

"I have met with Rangi and he has shown to me that he is totally committed in playing for England and he can't wait to be part of our plans. It is exciting news that we have a player of Rangi's quality available to us.

"His presence will enhance the Elite Training Squad and will add great competition for places, especially in the crucial half-back role."

Chase, 25, was recently named on the shortlist for the Super League Man of Steel award.
