World Cup fever hits Workington

October 30, 2013

Proud to be a host for the Rugby League World Cup," declares one of the colourful banners hanging high.
Excitement had been building in the competition's most northerly outpost - Workington for weeks and last night games did not disappoint locals with the Scotland side conjuring up a World Cup night to remember.
The Bravehearts got their campaign off to the best possible start with a thrilling 26-24 win over Tonga thanks to Matty Russell's late try.

The Scots will look to build on their impressive victory when they face Italy on Sunday November 3, again at Derwent Park (4.00pm).
