IT'S been quite a week for the Warrington contingent in the Great Britain men and England women rugby league sides touring in Papua New Guinea.

As well as preparing for this week's matches in Port Moresby, they have had opportunities to meet and mix with the locals who are fanatical about the sport and its players.

Warrington Wolves' Chris Hill, Jack Hughes, Blake Austin, Daryl Clark, Joe Philbin and Gareth Widdop attended a dinner with the Lions party.

And the England women, including Warringtonian Jodie Cunningham, proved to be a big hit on a school visit.

The Second Test of England Women’s historic tour of Papua New Guinea will be shown live by the BBC on Saturday morning – as the first part of a double header from Port Moresby.

England won their first ever match in PNG 24-10 in front of a crowd approaching 7,000 in Goroka last Saturday, with four tries from captain Emily Rudge.

And their attempt to complete a 2-0 series win at the Oil Search Stadium in the PNG capital will be broadcast live on the BBC Red Button, iPlayer and the BBC Sport website – as well as through the RFL’s Our League web and app.

The match will kick off at 5am UK time, before coverage switches to BBC Two at 7am as Great Britain’s men play their first Test against Papua New Guinea since 1996.

Both matches starting with the England Women will be repeated on Red Button from 09:30am, and will be available to watch on iPlayer for 30 days. There will also be highlights of the men’s match on BBC Two from 1630-1745, repeated 19:30-23:45 on BBC Red Button.
