Elliot Minchella will captain the England Academy side against France in a one-off Test match at Wheldon Road, Castleford, tomorrow.

The Leeds Rhinos star, who hails from Bradford and progressed through the ranks at West Bowling, made his Super League debut last season and then signed a three-year full-time deal at Headingley.

Tomorrow’s match, which kicks off at 6.30pm, represents the first opportunity for the Academy players to impress ahead of the two-Test series against the Australia Secondary School Rugby League in December.
