History will be made on when six Englishmen play in an NRL match for the first time this weekend.

Brothers Sam, Tom and George Burgess will line up under England head coach Wayne Bennett for South Sydney against Canberra Raiders and fellow countrymen Josh Hodgson, Elliott Whitehead and Ryan Sutton on Saturday.

The top-four clash, which has been dubbed the "Battle of Britain", will break the record of five Englishman in one match set in 1976 when Penrith's Bill Ashurst, Mike Stephenson and Dave Topliss went up against Manly's Steve Norton and Phil Lowe.
