THE INTERNATIONAL season is well and truly underway, and we’re on top of all the action here at League Express.
From eighty point routs to two point nail-biters, we have reports on all the games taking place around the world whilst also bringing you the very best reaction and build-up of the games ahead of us.
And we aren’t stopping there, we’re still keeping tabs on all the domestic action, with plenty of tasty news coming from Super League and beyond.
Here are just seven reasons to buy this week’s 32-page paper.
1, After both England and New Zealand opened their campaigns with victories, all eyes are firmly focused on the first test at the KC Stadium this Sunday. Our reporters have been out and about talking to some of the big stars in both teams, with a special two-page spread featuring the thoughts of Sam Tomkins, Steve McNamara and many more.
2, Richard Agar is less than impressed with Catalans after France’s hammering at the hands of England, but why? A very juicy interview with the French head coach is in this week’s paper.
3, John Bateman was one of the star performers for England against France, so Wigan fans will be delighted that their man has penned a new four-year deal at the club. He’s signed a new deal, but how close did he come to leaving? Bateman has revealed all to us.
4, Josh Hodgson isn’t exactly the most liked person at the KC Stadium, years after choosing Hull KR over FC. His relationship with the Airlie Birds fans isn’t likely to strengthen following his chat with us last week, but just what did he say?
5, There’s plenty of movement going on in Super League as all twelve clubs frantically try to shape their squads for the new season. We’ve got transfer news from Wakefield and Warrington, plus some very interesting rumours coming out of Castleford and Salford.
6, The Kingstone Press Championship is rife with player movement too. Big news from Batley, Featherstone and Whitehaven can be found in this week’s Championship News.
7, From Leigh to South Africa, our dedicated reporters are still providing the very best reaction to all the games around the world. We have extensive reports of both test series warm-ups, the European Championship and the World Cup Qualifier.
