Academy game against Bulldogs called off

Due to unforeseen circumstances, England Academy’s game against Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs on Saturday July 16 has been called off by the home side.

With no fixture over the weekend, Sydney Roosters have stepped in and adjusted their training schedule to accommodate the Academy squad on Friday July 15 to offer the players a tour of The Sydney Football Stadium and a video session with Roosters assistant coach and former England head coach Steve McNamara.

The afternoon will then end with England Academy having a team run against Sydney Roosters first team at their training facilities, going up against the likes of Shaun Kenny-Dowell, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Boyd Cordner and Daniel Tupou.

Saturday July 23 – England Academy v Penrith Panthers (Pepper Stadium)

Sunday July 31 – England Academy v Australia High Schools (Dolphin Oval, Redcliffe, QLD)

Saturday August 6 (TBC) – England Academy v Australia High Schools (Southern Cross Group Stadium)
