Looks like Jamaica are playing England Knights in October too, at Cas. Haven’t seen the RFL release that info?

It was covered in the same email/press release that mentioned the France game.

This was the word salad in the email:

England’s Men and Women will play a double-header against France in Perpignan on Saturday 23 October – with the Women’s game kicking off at 2pm French time (1pm BST), followed by the Men’s Test at 4.30pm local time (3.30pm BST). England Wheelchair will then host France, the reigning world champions, in a two-Test series at Medway Park on Wednesday 10 (KO 7.30pm) and Saturday 13 November (KO 6pm). And the England Knights will again face off against Jamaica, this time at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle on Friday 15 October (KO 7.45pm), in a match which will form part of the testimonial year for the Tigers’ Jordan Turner.

Disappointing that there is only one full England international this autumn. Also why do the Knights have their own head coach, I’d have thought Shaun Wane would be the best person to coach them, it’s not like he has a lot else on other than one England fixture a week later.

I'm more than disappointed with this. We threw a hissy fit about Australia not coming over and then fixed up just one international for the England men's team. Shocking.

Is that the offer for the replica shirt and a top for £50? Pretty good deal that, I am definitely tempted.

I went for it.. let's see if I live to regret it.. should know in 3-5 days

Thinking of doing that myself, well I don’t like the shirt at all and wouldn’t pay a tenner for one but I do like the QZ top so might as well get a free shirt with it. Any idea how Oxen size up though, ie loose or tight?

What an image.

Who would ever have believed it.

France v England  

Both captains playing for Catalans Dragons maybe.

Nice, its great to see.

However RL mode time, and not wishing to be picky but its these little things time and again, surely they could have got Sam Tomkins an England jersey rather than just wearing a red training top? A white England jersey screams France v England, that photo doesn't really.

My eagles shirt is a good fit, normal sizing, maybe a little tighter but nothing major.  Better than hummel I would say, my himmel England shirt is a terrible fit

The collar on the England Hummel shirt was the worst designed item of clothing in history.

Shaun Wane doesn’t have time to coach the knights, England v France will be the 2nd game he’s been in charge of this season, after 0 last season.
 

As a full time job it’s steady work if you could get it. I wonder if the England coaching job was re graded as part time if there’d be more money to go around for League One clubs like Coventry.

Totally agree..

oxen stuff just delivered, amazing service as didn’t pay for next day.. fits well, slightly smaller than some, if you are close to the top end of a size bracket go up I would say but as a large it fits fine for me (I’m pretty much an average large, as in I always buy a large never an xl or medium)

Yeah Hummel is a lot tighter. Had to get 3xl in my Hull shirt this year, normally get xl or 2xl. Fell into this trap when I got the Hummel England shirt, got xl if I remember correctly and haven't even worn it after initially trying it on cos it cuts off the circulation to my arms and head.
