Jamaica and England Knights all set for Castleford clash

Jamaica and England Knights all set for Castleford clash

Jamaica will host England Knights at Castleford's Mend-A-Hose Jungle for Jordan Turner's Testimonial Match tonight.

Getting underway at 7.45pm, the game pits England's future against Jamaica's present with a host of exciting talents on show from both sides.

Jamaica are able to call upon some of the best talent from across the UK's three professional divisions, with brothers Izaac and Joel Farrell of Sheffield Eagles amongst the brightest talents outside the top tier.

They will also call on other leading lights from the Betfred Championshop such as James Woodburn-Hall and Ben Jones-Bishop, as well as talent from Betfred League 1.

And they can boast Super League players in the form of Castleford's Turner and the Huddersfield pair of Ashton Golding and Michael Lawrence.

In the opposite camp, Paul Anderson's young side is selected exclusively from Super League clubs, with a host of emerging teenagers amongst their ranks.

The likes of 17-year-old Leeds Rhinos star Morgan Gannon and 18-year-old Will Pryce from Huddersfield will have the chance to shine tonight, alongside more established talents such as Wigan's Liam Marshall and Danny Walker of Warrington.

And Matty Ashton's rise from playing in the community game as recently as 2018 continues as he is set to feature in the international clash, while breakout Hull KR star Mikey Lewis will pull on a Knights shirt for the first time.

Tickets are available on the gate and priced at just £10 for adults, £5 for children and £20 for a family ticket. Meanwhile the game will be shown live on Our League for £4.95:
