Skolars players on International duties – England Knights v Jamaica

18th October 2019

Sam Powell has been appointed captain for the England Knights international fixture against Jamaica at Emerald Headingley on Sunday afternoon.

The 27-year-old Wigan hooker or half is one of a handful of players in a new-look Knights squad who have been involved in the programme for the last two years, and played in both internationals on last autumn’s short tour of Papua New Guinea.

Paul Anderson, the Knights head coach, said: “Sam was one of our vice captains in PNG, and he’s an ideal man to step up and lead the team this year.

“He’s a senior man in a young squad with a lot of experience at the highest level, and he’s respected by all of the group.

“We’ve had a really good preparation for the game, including an excellent session with the Academy squad at Weetwood which was really valuable to both teams.

“It’s a great weekend for the England Performance Unit with five of our six teams in action. We’re delighted to be part of that with the Knights, and I’m really looking forward to seeing the boys rip in against Jamaica.”

England Knights v Jamaica match tickets priced from £10 Adults, £5 U21s and £3 for Juniors (age 16 and under) are available from, by calling 0371 423 1315, or heading to the Leeds Rugby Ticket Office at Emerald Headingley Stadium.
