“It’s a big game and something I’m really looking forward to,” he said.
“It’s a fantastic draw for us and a big challenge but it’s something all the players are buzzing about.
“It’s a big game for our boys and probably will be the biggest game they will ever be involved in for the Lions.
“Every single player from 1 to 17 is a local lad. We have players who could definitely play at a higher level and they are looking forward to testing themselves on Friday.”
The match is being played at The Big Fellas Stadium, Post Office Road, Featherstone.
