Masters Rugby League: Canada Calling

Masters Rugby League: Canada Calling

Canada's national Masters team begins its first-ever tour of England at the South Leeds Stadium this Sunday (14 November).

Masters Rugby League is a social form of the game for players aged 35 and over (men) aged 30 and over (women).

'The Grizzlies' will face a combined 'Dads and Lads' team - a side made up of father/son combinations all of whom must be Masters players.

The oldest 'Dads and Lads' combination this year will be Brian Rishworth and his son Simon, who have a combined age of 138.

The tourists will then travel west of the Pennines to face the experienced Crosfields Masters under the lights at Warrington's Victoria Park on Thursday 17 November, before taking on Masters sides from England, Ireland and Wales at the Leigh East club on Sunday 21 November (1pm-3pm).

Meanwhile, there will be more Masters Rugby League action this Saturday (13 November, 1pm) at the Rochdale Mayfield club which is hosting an ex-Armed Forces invitation game - the first Forces event since the outbreak of the Covid pandemic.
