The BARLA Great Britain Lions open age team embarked on their 17 day trip to Australia late last night Monday 26th August, to take part in a three match tour.
After arriving at Coffs Harbour on Wednesday, 28th August, the squad will have time to find their feet before taking on Coffs Harbour Comets on Saturday 30th. The Coffs Harbour 18 will include Preston Campbell, the former Indigenous Australian Rugby League player, who played for the Gold Coast Titans, Cronulla Sutherland, and in the Grand Final winning Penrith Panthers side. Campbell won the most prestigious individual award in the ARL when he was named the Dally M player of the year in 2001, beating Andrews Johns by one vote
A fixture change for the second game means the Lions will face the Australian Aboriginals at Armidale, on Tuesday 3rd September, and will hope to retain the Perpetual Trophy they currently hold after their 2004 test victory over the Lions, in Australia in 2004.
