    I am pleased to announce that the preliminary details of the WCC tour will be released next week.

    This follows a meeting I had yesterday with David Perry in Sydney, where it was confirmed that the Sea Eagles will only play the WCC game and not the second game V St Helens (as was proposed).

    We are just waiting on the Super League draw to come out (this weekend) to see if we can include a second game in the tour, the hope is that Le Catalans might be playing up in the midlands so that those on the tour might see "Le Beaver" play one last time.

    So for those that have been waiting (patiently) thank you and as I say preliminary details will be released (as soon as Monday), with final costs for the tour by the end of next week.

    One thing I can assure you, especially after yesterdays meeting, is that it will be a great trip.

    Yeah.....what I might actually do is have an option for people to arrive on say Friday, and do a game on Saturday.....with the main crew arriving either Saturday or Sunday....in essence a pre tour extension.

    We'd just need a minimum number to do transfers, otherwise it would have to be local transport or a rental car.

    I am sure I'll get plenty of suggestions over the weekend

    This tour will be quite different to the one in 2009....there was very little player-travelling supporter interaction back then (Des didn't want it), and it was really only after the WCC game back at the Leeds Marriott that the 2009 tourists saw the team.

    2V and the new management team have a different approach, if people are going to part with their hard earned to travel 24 hours in a plane (each way) then they will be welcomed with open arms, by them AND the players.

    So expect lots of opportunities to see the boys, lots of surprises and some really fun times......oh yes and the ocasional hang over

    You may not get another chance (in the near future) to get to a WCC game and enjoy the very best the MWTS have to offer, so make sure you are on my E-Mail data base to get the full details as soon as they are released.
