Town set for more World Cup action?
11:06am Wednesday 25th April 2012 in News
COULD Warrington be in line to host a third game in next year’s Rugby League World Cup?
The Halliwell Jones Stadium has already been confirmed as the venue for a quarter final and the New Zealand v Samoa group game.
And Warrington Wolves chief executive Andy Gatcliffe has already told the RFL that the stadium - a ‘template’ for the sport - is ready for more.
That could now be a reality after World Cup bosses said Whitehaven would no longer host the Scotland v Tonga and Scotland v Italy games because of problems with a new ground in the Cumbrian town.
Tonga last played in Warrington in 1995 during the World Cup, in a memorable encounter with New Zealand at Wilderspool.
A spokesman for the World Cup said the new venues for those games would be confirmed soon.
