2020 Follow The Kangaroos

20 Days

1 Country

Sport: Rugby League

“I’m really looking forward to following the Kangaroos in October and November 2020 with 3 big Tests against the resurgent Wayne Bennett coached England. These clashes are always hard fought with no quarter given.

Midweek matches may be added later to give us a chance to savour the unique local club League hospitality. This will also be my first visit to Belfast to experience the vibrant Northern Irish hospitality – the craics in the local pubs are legendary so we’ll probably have to sample a Guinness or two whilst there!

Sightseeing is of course included throughout, and we may also get the opportunity to enjoy a day at the races or take in an English Premier League game. Join me for another exciting Kangaroo’s adventure… I can’t wait!”
