Along with William "Billy" Banks, Edward "Ted" Cahill, Keith Holliday, William "Billy" Ivison, Robert "Bob" Kelly, John McKeown, George Parsons, and Edward "Ted" Slevin, Gordon Haynes' only Great Britain appearance came against France prior to 1957, these matches were not considered as Test matches by the Rugby Football League, and consequently caps were not awarded.[2]
