They are travelling from all four corners of the country and from overseas. They are coming by plane and train, in a huge convoy of buses and cars.

There will be young and old. Father and son, mother and daughter.

Many will travel from Castleford - a gritty but honest northern town. Their club has seen some glory days but recent times have been hard. This season, however, the whole rugby world has watched and admired the club's endevours. The spirit and desire typifying the people of the area.

The final part of the journey will be made on foot. They will gather under one roof in the nation's capital. They will sing. They will be passionate. The noise will be deafening.

During Abide With Me they will remember those who are no longer with us. People who were loved and would have been thrilled to be part of a unique day. Some of those people made the ultimate sacrifice in far flung places for the rest of us. There will be tears. The spirit of everyone who cannot be there will touch every person who is watching.

In countries across the world, at all hours, people will watch and yearn to be there. Wishing that they were part of a special group of people wearing those famous colours who will give everything for the players, the coaching staff and everyone connected with the club.

Regardless of the result, anyone there or watching from afar will not forget what they saw on an incredible day - a sea of black and amber, a vibrant wall of noise.Thousands of pople united as one.

They are from Castleford.They are proud people. They will make an idelible mark on a day of all days.
