England open doors to the public
1st November 2012
England are to break with tradition by making Friday's final training session an open event.
The gates at Hull KR will be opened to the public from 10.00am and fans will be able to watch McNamara put his players through their paces before obtaining autographs afterwards.
“We feel it is a great way to engage with the public,” said McNamara.
“The kids are off school this week in Hull, so it will be a nice way for the public to come and watch the team train and then get to the game on the Saturday,
“The players enjoy playing in Hull and no doubt there will be a great atmosphere on Friday at training and then leading into the game the following day.”
Fewer than 1,000 tickets are left on sale for Saturday's match at Craven Park, where the capacity has been cut to just under 7,000 because of development work.
Tickets for England v France, at MS3 Craven Park on Saturday November 3 and the final of the 2012 Autumn International Series at Salford City Stadium on Sunday November 11 cost just £12 for adults and £6 concessions and can be purchased by calling the RFL Ticket Office on 0844 856 1113 or by visiting www.rugbyleaguetickets.co.uk
