This will be the ninth year in succession for London to take a game on the road and, up against the champions; it should attract a massive following across the channel.
It is also expected that the traveling party (of Broncos and Rhinos fans) will easily surpass that of previous years' road games.
If you plan your trip early enough, you could have yourself a fabulous summer break, along with a cracking Super League game to boot.
Tickets are now on sale (from just ?15) for this big event. An exclusive corporate dinner and the French Championship ? Final will precede the main game which kicks off at 7pm.
