Did you see Kyle Amor comment on social media the other day? If not here it is again last time Cumbria played a fixture 4 years ago vs England Knights.....defo due another fixture.
I am sure all Cumbrian RL fans and quite a few Non Cumbrians would agree !
The third county of Rugby League first played as Cumberland when Queen Victoria was still on the Throne and from that point on produced Players Like Joe Ferguson, Jim Lomas , Martin Hodgson , Jim Brough through to Dick Huddart Brian Edgar and in the Super league era Robert Purdham and Kyle Amor .
Also Cumbria can boast numerous victories over International Touring Teams including the Kangaroos and Kiwis .
It is indeed a sad reflection that the Border County has been so marginalised in the last few decades , the recent Test series showed just popular games with touring teams can be.The Rugby Football League have taken Scotland games to Cumbria in the last few years but its a safe bet that those attendances for the RLWC would be surpassed should Cumbria RL be given a home game with an international touring team .
The Four Nations next year would provide an ideal opportunity for this game , Wouldn't you agree?
So in closing Kyle Amor has already put his name in the hat for a such a game , what other Cumbrians would you select to play along side him ? Suggestion in the comments section please
