Rugby league stars of yesteryear will be coming to Brisbane Park tomorrow to take on Hindpool Masters for the second successive year.

Former Great Britain internationals Paul Sculthorpe, Paul Wellens and Graham Steadman will take to the field for this Masters clash, which kicks off at 2:30pm, while Sean Long’s move to rugby union with Harlequins rules him out.

Over 25 Tigers veterans have put their hands up to take to the field at around £150 each, with the monies being donated to the Rumnick School on Barrow Island, the Tigers youth section and to the Masters charity.

The Tigers will parade a one-off strip for the game, which will include coach Darren Clarke, who will then skip across the road for his side’s cup clash with Culcheth Eagles (kick-off 3pm).

Clarke said. “It is all for charity and one many lads want to participate in, myself included. Our chairman Graham Shaw has put a lot of effort in getting the game on.”

Last year’s game was a huge success with several hundreds paying through the gate to see a game that included Wellens, Sculthorpe,Steadman, Rob Burrows and Adrian Morley.

The Tigers’ senior side take on Culcheth in the quarter finals of the North West Men’s League Trophy and are without the McDermott boys with Cameron, Shane and Connor all on other duties at former Raiders star Brett McDermott’s stag night.

Back in contention are Cameron Hayton, Mike Kummer and Mike Pearce, Rob Bowyer, Dale Sneesby and Josh Crawford. Unavailable are Jamie Lynne and Jamie Knight.

Hindpool beat local rivals Roose Pioneers in the previous round to reach the last eight.

Clarke said “Culcheth are a league below us and are not going too well with some heavy defeats, but we will not take them lightly.

“I have played in many games when we have really underestimated the opposition and come unstuck.

“The lads will have to go into the game with the right attitude as we are looking for a semi-final place and also to keep us on track for a top four position.”

Ulverston were due to play in the quarter finals of the North West Men’s League Cup away at Heysham Atoms, but have had to forfeit the tie due to injuries ensuring they were unable to raise a team.

The Dragley Beck side didn’t want to draft in ‘A’ team players, as they are playing in a Harry Warman Cup semi-final against Dalton tonight.
