School children from Neath got their hands on the Rugby League World Cup recently when the famous old trophy made a whistle-stop tour around Wales.
The trophy was only in the area for a few hours, so two schools, Neath Primary and Tonnau Primary, were selected at random to have the 59-year old piece of silverware at their establishments.
Rugby League World Cup 2013 is delighted to announce that the kit to be worn by match officials at the tournament and a broad range of equipment for venues and teams will be supplied by Centurion Rugby.
