England to headline Pacific Test triple-header


The 2017 edition of the Pacific Test will see England’s clash against Samoa headline an International Rugby League triple-header at Campbelltown Sports Stadium, New South Wales, Australia on Saturday, 6th May (7.30pm AEST).

In an action-packed Saturday that features some of the best Rugby League talent from across the globe, Papua New Guinea take on the skill and power of the Cook Islands, before traditional rivals Fiji and Tonga battle it out for Pacific ascendency in the penultimate match of the day.

England’s last encounter with Samoa was the opening game of the 2014 Four Nations in front of 47,813 spectators at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.

The Wall of White won 32-26 that day, but England Head Coach Wayne Bennett is expecting another physical game in Campbelltown.

“This will be a tough test for us with much of the playing group coming from the UK, but we’ll prepare the best we can,” said Bennett.

“The Samoans are always a physical side, but we’ve got a solid group of players to choose from and I’m looking forward to getting everyone together for the match ahead of the World Cup later this year.”

Pacific Test triple-header 2017 schedule:

Cook Islands v Papua New Guinea (3.30pm AEST)

Tonga v Fiji (5.30pm AEST)

Samoa v England (7.30pm AEST)

Tickets for the 2017 Pacific Test triple-header will be on sale from Ticketek to members and fans from 5.00pm AEDT Tuesday, 21st March.
