England vs The Combined Nations: Kick-off time, TV channel and confirmed line-ups

The final step on Shaun Wane’s road to the World Cup, England take on the Combined Nations All Stars for the second consecutive season.

Last year, the All Stars shocked England with a 26-24 win as Wane’s side struggled to find their rhythm, but now just months away from the World Cup they simply have to find some rhythm and need a win against a very exciting Combined Nations side led by another Wigan legend Ellery Hanley.

Hanley has included Englishmen Kruise Leeming and Daryl Clark in his side giving Wane a chance to look at the duo as well as the two nines in his side including Michael McIlorum who is making his first England appearance since 2013.

There are debuts for Jake Wardle, Joe Batchelor, Matty Lees and Jack Welsby with Welsby lining up alongside George Williams in the halves. Skipper Sam Tomkins starts at fullback.

A huge game which plenty of people will want to watch at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in Warrington, what details do potential viewers need to know?

Well, the game kicks off at 17:45 tonight with coverage starting on Sky Sports Arena from 17:30.

This comes after England women vs Wales women which is also live on Sky Sports Arena from 15:00 which kicks off at 15:15.
