Exiles centre Matt King and England winger Tom Briscoe are joint third favourites to cross the whitewash first with William Hill pricing both men at 10/1 while Michael Shenton and Sam Tomkins of England have been priced at 12/1 alongside Exiles centre George Carmont as outside favourites to score the game’s first try.
