The match, sponsored by our sister company Sports Funding, features stellar names from Rugby League including two of the greatest players in history Jason Robinson will finally tick the last remaining box on his incredible CV. Jason won every honour possible in Rugby League with Wigan before crossing codes and lifting the Rugby Union World Cup and going on to be the first black captain in history in the 15-man code.

The game is littered with rivalries; in the pack two of the fiercest competitors will once again draw swords with Barrie McDermott (Lancashire) taking on Stuart Fielden (Yorkshire). In the halves the mercurial Sean Long will pit his wits against the live wire and Leeds Rhinos legend Rob Burrow.
