Ben Barba is set to make his debut against Wigan on Friday September 1 and tickets for the clash are selling fast.
The game is already one of the most anticipated on the calendar – but the added spice of one of the world’s best players taking to the Totally Wicked Stadium surface ensures it will be the hottest ticket in town.
“I’m a bit nervous more than anything; it’s like I’m debuting again, it’s a big build up,” he said. “It’s going to be my first rugby league game in 10 months since the Grand Final in Australia so hopefully I don’t forget anything.
“I’m really excited and, on the other hand, nervous. I’ve always told myself when I feel nervous it means I’m alive, it means I’m normal. They’re good nerves.
“I’m really looking forward to the atmosphere too.”
Tickets for the clash are on sale from the Ticket Office at the Totally Wicked Stadium, by calling 01744 455 052 or online here.
