Get behind England as they take on the Kangaroos
England go into this Saturday’s Gillette Four Nations Final against Australia urging all Rugby League fans to get behind them and lift the team to victory.
England captain Jamie Peacock has described the fans that turned out at Huddersfield’s Galpharm Stadium to cheer on England to a 20-12 victory against New Zealand as ‘awesome’ and called for a massive crowd to turn out for next Saturday’s final.
Peacock told the Gillette Four Nations website “They’ve been great for us and they need to be great for us again next week. If we can get 30 thousand inside Elland Road and get them behind us it’ll be fantastic.”
Former England and Great Britain captain Paul Sculthorpe thinks absolutely anything can happen in next Saturday’s Gillette Four Nations Final.
“You only have to look at what happened in last year’s World Cup Final for proof of that.
“No-one gave the Kiwis a chance of beating the Aussies on home soil but they did just that. It was a game most of us watched on TV, but a game all of us wished we were there for.
“Saturday’s game is similar. Australia start as very strong favourites but, by beating New Zealand, England has given themselves a chance to be there and compete.”
“It’s vital that the crowd get behind the team on Saturday,” said Sculthorpe. “It’s a real ‘Your Country Needs You’ moment.
“We all wished we were in Australia last year to see the World Cup Final and I’d hate for England fans to wake up next Sunday morning kicking themselves that they weren’t there for the biggest result in English Rugby League for decades.”
