Grubber in town for derby
The town of Warrington continues its countdown to Rugby League World Cup 2013 with the visit of the trophy at tomorrow evening's epic Super League clash between the Wolves and Warriors.
The Rugby League World Cup trophy is taking time out of its busy schedule to be at The Halliwell Jones Stadium, having already been photographed with British Prime Minister David Cameron, Irish Taoiseach Enda Kelly and Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones.
A dedicated Trophy Tour website was launched last month, allowing fans to check when the Trophy is near them, and upload their own snaps for the chance to scoop tickets for matches at RLWC2013.
So don't miss your chance to catch a glimpse of a small piece of international sporting history tomorrow night, and visit http://trophytour.rlwc2013.com for your opportunity to win. The trophy will also be out and about round the town during the afternoon so why not pop along to see the silverware up close? It will be at Sainsbury's Church Street 1.30 - 2.30pm and Cockhedge Centre 4.30 - 5.30pm.
"The Trophy Tour has been an excellent way for Rugby League World Cup 2013 to raise awareness of this autumn's tournament," said RLWC2013 Marketing Manager Mark Foster.
"It's been in regions new to Rugby League, and was even in the company of Radio 2 DJ, and proud Warringtonian, Chris Evans for his Breakfast show earlier this year.
"But we're also delighted whenever we see the trophy being so well received in areas where the locals are already fanatical Rugby League fans.
"The Halliwell Jones Stadium hosts two games at RLWC2013 and the Wolves fans will play a huge role in the success of both events.
"I hope they take the chance to see the trophy on Monday, and that we see them proudly representing their club and getting behind international Rugby League this October and November."
Also at the game tomorrow night will be Wolves' supporter Luke James, age 12, one of the three youngsters behind the design of the RLWC2013 mascot Grubber. Grubber and the trophy will be on hand for a memorable photo opportunity with Luke on the pitch ahead of the big kick-off.
The Wolves will welcome New Zealand and Samoa for their tasty Group B encounter on October 27, and the action will return on November 17, when the Halliwell Jones hosts Quarter-Final 4. But tomorrow night the focus will be on the Super League when Luke, Grubber and supporters from both Warrington and Wigan pack out the home of the Wolves for 'The One' north-west derby not to miss!
Tickets for tomorrow's match are still available at WolfWare Online until midnight tonight and also in the WolfWare store from 9am - 5pm tomorrow. Ticket office windows will open at 5pm with turnstiles opening at 6.15pm.
