Michael Carter has finalised his Chairman’s select XIII squad ahead of Monday night’s spectacle where he alongside his team made up of former Super League stars and current touch rugby league stars will take on Richard Silverwood’s RFL Referees in this exhibition game!
“We have had a fair bit of negotiating to do over the last few weeks with players and now’s the time for our team to shine on the hallowed turf here at Belle Vue. I’m really looking forward to the game and playing alongside so many stars, its set to be a great night and I encourage all to come down, pack the stadium and support this event. We owe one to the referees after last years controversial try that saw them win in the last minute but I’m sure with the calibre of players that we have this year we will be on the right side of the score sheet come the 80th minute!....we might just have a video referee this year!!”
“On a serious note we’re doing this for a bit of fun and to raise money for the Wildcats Community Trust which enables us to host these types of events, but also to be able to get stuck into our referee friends! Love them or hate them they have a very tough job to do week in week out and for them to accept our challenge is testament to there characters”
