The weekend is here. St Helens, Superleague's most successful club, will do battle against the up and coming London Skolars.
Interest in the game has been very strong with Setanta announcing it will cover the game, 106FM have advertised the game all week and will interview Sean McGuire, CEO of St Helens and Hector McNeil, Chairman of the Skolars, tomorrow. The Irish Sun has ran articles all week including a focus on locally produced Skolars trialist Vinnie O?Dowd. The Dublin Metro also featured Vinnie.
Leinster Rugby has also shown their strong support by using all their advertising channels to promote the game. It shows the two codes can work well together in Ireland.
St Helens and Skolars fans will already be in Dublin or will be on their way. It is expected to draw a strong local crowd from RLIreland supporters and volunteers and hopefully some curious union and GAA fans. All in all it?s a game not to be missed!!!
