League returns to Wembley for Four Nations double-header
Friday 01 July 2011
International rugby league is to be played for the first time at the new Wembley Stadium. The ground, whose predecessor last staged a Test in 1997, is to host a double-header on 5 November, with England playing Australia and Wales taking on New Zealand in the Four Nations.
The tournament starts the previous weekend with Australia facing New Zealand at Warrington and England against Wales at Leigh. England play the Kiwis at Hull on 12 November, with Australia against Wales in Wrexham the following day. The final is at Elland Road on 19 November.
Semi Tadulala is to return to his first British club, Wakefield, for the rest of the season. The Fiji winger played for the Wildcats for three years from 2004, before moving on to Bradford and later switching to rugby union. He has recently been released by Leeds Carnegie and has been training with Wakefield.
"He has been doing some conditioning work with us and he is looking very good," said the Trinity coach, John Kear. "We know what we are getting with Semi."
Tadulala is in line to make his second Wakefield debut against St Helens on 10 July. The club also hope to have another overseas player on their books by then, but are not yet ready to reveal his name.
In the meantime, the Rugby League is investigating reports of an intruder on the pitch after Sunday's match against Hull. An elderly woman pushed an in-goal judge in an attempt to get at the referee.
Hull have confirmed the signing of the New Zealand Warriors' scrum-half, Brett Seymour, on a three-year contract. The Australian is Hull's fourth major signing for next season.
Kylie Leuluai has agreed to play one more season for Leeds before retiring. The prop has been with the Rhinos since 2007.
