Rugby League – Connor talks up Makinson partnership

England centre Jake Connor says he is relishing his left-flank partnership with winger Tommy Makinson. Connor had a hand in two of Makinson's hat-trick tries in Sunday's win over New Zealand, which secured the Baskerville Shield for England. His offload for Makinson's second earned the Hull star plenty of plaudits, even though the spotlight fell on his wing partner after full-time. Connor said: "Every day I work hard at training on those two-on-ones. As soon as I've got that winger dipped in I know he's gone. It's about getting Tommy in space. He'll finish it. In my head I just know that if he's got space he'll take advantage of that." England are 8/11 with bet365 to win the third and final Test against the Kiwis at Elland Road on Sunday.
