THE final two games of the Autumn International Series will now be a mini series of England v France over the next two weekends.
England play France at MS3 Craven Park, Hull on Saturday (Nov 3) and the second half of the double header takes place in Salford on Sunday November 11.
These matches are key preparation for teams in the build-up to next year’s Rugby league World Cup which is being held in England and Wales.
Tickets for both games are priced at £12 for adults and £6 for children and represent great value for families to come along and support the England team. Tickets can be booked on the RFL website.
Hull has a long tradition of staging international matches and Saturday’s game will see the England team led by new Captain Kevin Sinfield take on France, who will be based in Hull during next year’s World Cup.
Speaking ahead of the game England coach Steve McNamara said; “All the England players love coming to Hull because the reception they receive is always fantastic. We have spoken about playing at MS3 Craven Park this week in camp and the whole squad agreed that it’s a ground which creates a great atmosphere.
“We expect a real physical battle against France. They are progressing in their Rugby League education and you only have to see how far the Catalan Dragons have developed over the past couple of years. They will want to cause us problems and make us work hard.”
