Sky Try success at International Series

Sky Try success at International Series

Over 900 young Rugby League players from across the country enjoyed memorable money-can't-buy experiences during England's recent International Series win over New Zealand, thanks to Sky Try.

First up in Hull, 150 local under 8s kids took part in a Sky Try festival with the FC Foundation; the likes of Hull Wyke, West Hull, Beverley and Myton Warriors amongst the teams involved.


The players watched on as Oliver Gildart made it an international debut to remember, scoring a late winning try as England won 18-16 at the KCOM Stadium.

Next up was Anfield in Liverpool as the Saints Foundation helped over 150 youngsters from local under 7s and 8s teams enjoy another Sky Try festival ahead of a series-clinching win for England, a hard-fought 20-14 triumph.


The curtain came down on the series at Leeds United's Elland Road as over 600 local Rugby League-playing youngsters paraded around the pitch in front of over 30,000 people.


Supported by the Leeds Rhinos Foundation, clubs such as Drighlington, Stanningley, Batley Boys, Farnley Falcons and many more took in the big game atmosphere before watching the third test unfold.
