The men’s team will then take the field at 8.15 pm with new Head Coach Shaun Wane taking charge for the first time since his appointment, nearly 18 months ago. England will face a stern test against a Combined Nations All Stars.

Warrington assistant coach Andrew Henderson will take part as a Combined Nations All Stars assistant coach.

The Combined All Stars is a new name to reflect on the concept of England taking on a similar team known as Other Nationalities in April 1904. The idea was revived in 2011-13 being renamed as Exiles for four fixtures.

On 25 June the England Wheelchair Rugby League team will also face Wales at the International Institute of Sport in Sheffield. The kick-off for the fixture is yet to be confirmed.

RFL Chief Executive Ralph Rimmer said: “To have all three England teams who will play in those World Cups in action over the space of 24 hours in June, and for the England Women and Wheelchair teams to receive unprecedented levels of broadcast exposure through Sky and the BBC, really sets the tone for what we want to achieve this year”.

With fans set to be allowed back to stadia in June, the RFL said the following regarding ticketing for the fixtures:

“So far an initial allocation of 4,000 tickets are now on sale for the doubleheader at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Friday June 25, with the hope that further areas of the stadium of the stadium will become available as social distancing requirements ease”.

“The wheelchair fixture on Saturday June 26 has an initially limited allocation with more seats expected to be released nearer matchday”.
