England Head Coach Wayne Bennett has revealed what players are going to be on the pitch as rugby league heads to America.

The Three Lions will be taking on New Zealand in a historic match at the Mile High Field, home of 2016 Super Bowl Champions Denver Broncos.

The big news is that Tommy Makinson and Jake Connor will likely make their international debuts after being named in the 19 man squad.

The squad is largely the same to the one that narrowly lost the 2017 World Cup Final against Australia, with Makinson and Connor replacing George Williams, who has been declared unfit, and Kallum Watkins.

Luke Thompson misses out on making his test debut.

The match kicks off at 9.10pm UK time and the referee will be Ben Thaler.
