“Trip of a lifetime!” …. the unanimous verdict of the 80 British Rugby League supporters who travelled Down Under on the OZ06 Tri-Nations supporters tour.
Organised and operated by Howes Etc, whose Managing Director David Howes is a former Great Britain Tour and England World Cup Manager, and Traveleads, current official travel specialist for The Rugby Football League, OZ06 was chosen by the RFL as the official fans’ tour package with exclusive access to the Great Britain squad.
The OZ06 supporters party were aged from 14 to 75, coming from right across Rugby League territory including Hull, Leeds, York, Castleford, Huddersfield, Cumbria, Widnes, Wigan, Rochdale, Leigh, Oldham and Bradford, plus London and Toronto.
Two-thirds of party chose to travel Down Under for the full four weeks, flying with Emirates from Manchester to Sydney via Dubai and return, taking in three Great Britain matches in Sydney, Wellington and Brisbane, plus the Sydney Final between Australia and New Zealand.
