Thanks for that. The game at Manchester Regional Arena is the same day Cherries visit the Etihad at 3pm making a cheeky double possible.Smile

Slight error on my part. Sorry. Kick-off is 1.30pm not 1pm. I've amended the schedule. That's likely to give you the same problem/dilemma I'll face at Prestonpans on Saturday!

A 22-strong Australia High Schools (aka Australia Schoolboys) squad is touring in November and December. Five matches, culminating in two Tests against England Academy. The tourists are always an extremely talented bunch of players. Many go on to win full international caps for the Kangaroos. Shame there's no game with Cumbria's youngsters (plenty of them in the past). Schedule for the 'Junior Kangaroos' is:

Sunday, November 25 @ Kingston Park, Newcastle, 3pm
England Colleges v Australia High Schools

Wednesday, November 28 @ Wheldon Road, Castleford, 7.30pm
Yorkshire v Australia High Schools

Saturday, December 1 @ Manchester Regional Arena, 1.30 pm
Lancashire v Australia High Schools

Saturday, December 8 @ Leigh Sports Village, 2pm
England Academy v Australia High Schools

Friday, December 14 @ Headingley, Leeds, 7.30pm
England Academy v Australia High Schools

Looks like the RFL will be live streaming all these games.

Some talent in the Australia party: Tom Dearden is a member of the first team squad at Brisbane Broncos; Juwan Compain is said to be a target for every NRL club; Bradman Best is training with first team players at Newcastle Knights; Tommy Talau is the son of former St Helens and Salford centre Willie Talau. I'm hoping to catch at least one of the tour matches. If I can make only one, it'll be the opener at Kingston Park, Newcastle.

I emailed the RFL to enquire about the likelihood of match programmes for these tour fixtures (I've picked up programmes at matches on previous Junior Kangaroos tours), and received this response: "We, the RFL, will not be producing any match programmes. However, it is down to the venues' discretion as to whether they would like to produce one of their own. I understand that Newcastle are planning on producing one for this Sunday’s fixture."

Worth mentioning there will be a curtain raiser to this opening tour match. An Origin North of the Tyne XIII meet an Origin South of the Tyne XIII in a challenge fixture kicking off at 12.30pm.

Double header at Kingston Park on Saturday 16th February:

1430 Newcastle Thunder v Doncaster - League 1
1700 Toronto Wolfpack v Widnes Vikings - Championship

According to Toronto's website the home match vs Batley on 17th March will also be played in the UK and Sheffield Eagles 7th April in Europe, presumably this is the match they are hoping to play in Belgrade. Wolfpack not risking the Canadian winter being over until the visit of Swinton on 28th April.

I've been told that the Eagles away game against Toronto will be played as part of a double header at London Skolars. Nothing concrete yet though. One thing for certain, it won't be played in Canada!

May explain why Skolars v Workington is listed as 1215 kick off on 6th April in some places.



Watford FC supporter hence the name also follow Hull FC but rarely get to see either these days.

Have now visited over 800 grounds, progress in recent years has been rather slow and will continue to be as things stand.

Interesting double header at New River Stadium on Saturday, May 18:

Greece versus Norway (World Cup qualifier, 1pm) followed by London Skolars versus Doncaster (League One, 4.30pm)

Early bird ticket offer (to the end of March): £12 adults, £6 concessions (otherwise £15/£10)

The winners of the Greece versus Norway game host Scotland (November 2-3, 2019) before travelling to Russia (November 9-10, 2019) in the final European qualifying tournament for a place at the 2021 World Cup in England

Saturday 9th March

A rugby league double is possible in St Helens for those looking to go off piste between the first and last matches on the NWCL hop:

1400 Thatto Heath Crusaders v Rochdale Mayfield - Challenge Cup 3rd Round
1615 Pilkington Recs v Saddleworth Rangers - National Conference League Division 1

Although NCL and BBC sites have the latter down as 4pm, which would make the double tight, Pilkington Recs' pitchero site and a match poster on their twitter feed which looks like it was drawn by a school kid has the kick off as 4:15pm after an Under 18's game at 2pm. Ignore where it says Friendly, it has all season's games down as that!

It's not an Under 18's (sic) game - it's an open age 'A' team (for Pilks) fixture, against Manchester Rangers, in North West Men's League Division Two.

Thanks FL. Do they issue a programme for this? May well call in for the for first final at 1100 on my way to Otley and possibly catch the second half of the main final on way home. The 1530 kick off should also make a tight double possible for anyone going to Chesterfield v Sutton United at 1230.

Re: [cherryhopper] One For The Rugby League 'Hoppers [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I note National Conference League newcomers Batley Boys played last Saturday's (30/3) Third Division derby against Drighlington at their Halifax Road ground in Staincliffe - not at Batley RLFC's Mount Pleasant, where they're supposed to be staging all their 2019 home fixtures. I don't know why (maybe to protect the fragile Mount Pleasant pitch?), but a welcome development. I hope to see it repeated!

EDIT: word is Batley Boys intend to play only a handful of games at Mount Pleasant. The bulk will be at Staincliffe. At some point, I'll add this to the programmes thread: for 2019, Batley Boys are issuing a printed eight-pager (included with admission).

Chairman Jon Flatman has revealed (this week, to a fans forum) York City Knights plan to play their first game at the new Community Stadium "at Christmas, in pre-season". The stadium is scheduled for completion by autumn. Flatman announced also York will "in the next few months" unveil a blue heritage plaque at the site - now flats - of the original club's former Clarence Street ground, which staged its last game in 1989.
