Highlights: England 16-17 New Zealand

England vice-captain James Graham will miss Saturday’s Four Nations match against Scotland with a knee injury.

The Canterbury Bulldogs prop, 31, skippered England in their warm-up victory over France in the absence of Sam Burgess, who was suspended.

“Graham has got a small medial tear. It is not serious, he should be right next week [against Australia],” said boss Wayne Bennett.

Burgess will play against the Scots despite suffering with a sore side.

Wigan half-back George Williams and club team-mate Liam Farrell come into the side having been left out of the 19-man squad to face New Zealand last Saturday.

England lost to the Kiwis by a single point in their opening fixture, while Scotland were resoundingly beaten by Australia on their debut in the competition.
