England To Take On Italy In World Cup Warm Up Match

Mark down Saturday October 19th on your calender as it will be the first time England plays a Rugby League international against Italy.

The match will be held in Salford and will provide both teams with a decent hit out as they head into the World Cup.

Italy will play the match just 3 days after arriving in England. The match will also be held just a week before the opening games of the World Cup itself.

England will take part in this match after their much talked about trip to South African.

The reality is that this Italian side won’t have many true Italian players in it. Most players with be Australia’s playing under the stupid eligibility rules we have in Rugby League. They should give England a decent hit out though.
