Ferres excited by Huddersfield sell-out

Brett Ferres cannot wait to play in front of a capacity crowd at his home ground for England when they meet Ireland at The John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield, on Saturday.

Both England and Ireland go into the game on the back of defeats – Fiji stormed to a 32-14 win over the Wolfhounds on Monday night in Rochdale and England lost their opening game to Australia last Saturday.

Ferres said: “When the fixtures came out, I looked at this game and hoped I would be involved. Playing at a packed John Smith’s Stadium is something that has not been seen for a long time, so it would be great to be a part of.

“Football is the main focus for many people in Huddersfield, so the Giants players would love to turn that around. Hopefully with games and occasions like this, the fans will turn out in force and grow to love the sport.

“Silverware is definitely something that is in my sights this year, and there is no greater prize in sport than the World Cup trophy. As a squad, we believe we can go all the way.

“Now it’s all about putting in a consistent performance Ireland, who are a quality side themselves. Playing for your country means there is a lot of pride and passion at stake, and Saturday will be a real stern test for us.”
