The England Universities Rugby League Team needs your help.
In July 2017, they will take part in the Student Rugby League World Cup which takes place in Sydney, Australia.
The team is made up of the best student Rugby League players in the country and participation in the squad is self-funded.
Each player and member of the volunteer coaching and management team is responsible for raising money for themselves to cover UK-based training and friendly games, kit and equipment, flights, accommodation, travel, insurance and tournament participation fees.
The whole squad will be working hard to fundraise the £110k needed for the trip through selling sponsorship, Community Game Raffle Tickets and staging events, but all donations will go a long way to reducing the cost of taking part in the tournament for the players.
England Universities are the reigning 4 Nations champions
Australia overcame England in the 2013 World Cup final
"Anyone who witnessed the Student Rugby League World Cup in 2013 will know the quality of the competition and the importance of helping our England team as prepared as it can be!"
