Ovenden head coach Jake Connor is set to start for England against France at the Leigh Sports Village tomorrow evening (7.45pm).

The Hull FC half-back made 24 appearances for the Black and Whites last term, scoring six tries.

The 23-year-old, who celebrates his birthday on Thursday, made his England debut against New Zealand midway through the 2018 season.

The Calderdale-raised player made a big impact during the mid-season test, scoring a try as England beat the Kiwis 36-18 at the Mile High Stadium in Denver, Colorado.

The game against France will be England’s first on home territory since they reached the final of last year’s World Cup, with their win over New Zealand in America their only fixture since.

Tickets for the game against France are on sale now at and are priced at £20 for adults and £5 for juniors.
