England to play match against Affiliated States

England will play a match against an Affiliated States side ahead of the Rugby League World Cup at the end of this year.

The match is scheduled to be played at nib Stadium in Perth on Friday 20 October, with players from Western Australia, Victoria, South Australia and the Northern Territory eligible for Affiliated States selection later this year.

NRL Affiliated States Manager Martin Meredith said the opportunity for an Affiliated States side to play one of the powerhouse rugby league sides in England would be a once in a lifetime match for some players.

“This match is an enormous boost for rugby league throughout our Affiliated States programs and I’m sure there will be plenty of competition for positions to line up against the likes of Sam Burgess, James Graham and others from the English team,” Mr Meredith said.

Further details on the match will be released on NRL.com later this year.
