On 30th November Old Trafford will play host to the showpiece final of the Rugby League World Cup. With the tournament currently in full swing, featuring games played all over the country, the Club's Museum has unveiled a special Rugby League exhibition to coincide with the tournament.
Over the past week, players representing the teams of Ireland, Scotland and Papua New Guinea came down to sample for themselves what the museum has to offer. The players were in good spirits, enjoying a look back at some of the finest moments of the Rugby League World Cup. All were very keen to share their experiences with fans by posting pictures of themselves on Twitter soon after their arrival in Manchester.
Scotland half-back and Super League 'Man of Steel' Danny Brough commented: "It's my first time at the museum today and I've really enjoyed myself. I'm quite proud and humbled by what I've seen because not everybody gets to see so many things from the history of Man United."
The exhibition, which runs up until the 30th November, not only covers the history of the competition itself, but also that of the 14 competing nations. In addition, the exhibit also explains the history of Rugby League in the Manchester area.
The Museum & Tour Centre is open daily from 9.30-17.00, and as part of a special offer, supporters presenting any Rugby League World Cup ticket can gain a 20% discount on entry price to the Museum. Supporters attending the final can also gain a discounted price of 50% on the day of the match itself. A limited number of tickets for the final are still available for the final and can be purchased by clicking on the link below.
