England prop James Graham is expected to be fit to face Samoa on Saturday despite suffering concussion.

Graham, 31, suffered a head injury 14 minutes into Canterbury Bulldogs' 16-10 victory over Canberra in the NRL.

However, a spokesman confirmed Graham is expected to begin training with England later this week.

The former St Helens player is England's most-capped current international, having played 33 Tests for England and Great Britain.

England have lost several players from their original squad for the Samoa game, with half-backs Gareth Widdop and George Williams ruled out through injury.
