England v Combined Nations All Stars Predictions & Tips (Friday 20:15 GMT)

With the 2021 World Cup taking place at the end of the year, England have a warm-up game against a Combined Nations All Stars at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Friday. This will be the first time head coach Shaun Wane will have put a squad together on the field and players will be looking to put in strong performances in order to be selected for the World Cup. Wane has named six uncapped players in his squad with Tom Davies, Ash Handley, Morgan Knowles, Mikolaj Oledzki, Joe Philbin and current Man of Steel Paul McShane all set for their debuts. All Stars coach Tim Sheens has upset the applecart by naming two players who wanted to be in the England squad but were overlooked. Huddersfield winger Jermaine McGillvary and Hull full-back Jake Connor have both been named in the All Stars squad. When you look at Sheens’ squad, the lack of St Helens and Warrington players and only one Wigan star, shows that some clubs are not happy with his fixture as there are a number of big-name players not selected. This means the likes of Kenny Edwards, Matt Prior, Andre Savelio, Ricky Leutele and Ken Sio will all feature. When this fixture I was announced, I was excited about it, but now I think it is meaningless considering Super League fixtures will still be going ahead this weekend. And now the likes of Lachlan Coote, Regan Grace, Theo Fages, Willie Isa, Blake Austin, Tommy Leuluai and Joel Thompson will not be involved, it seems like a waste of time. I am backing England to win this quite convincingly in the end, while I am backing Catalans winger Davies to mark his England debut with the first try of the evening.
