Dave Woods, who is the head coach of Whitehaven RLFC, said the squad are looking forward to having a fun day at the races:
Whitehaven Coach Dave Woods got the idea when he lived in Australia. Discounts were given to Rugby fans attending race meetings. Attendances went up as a result and the Rugby Club shared in the profits. It worked Down Under, and Richard Clements believes both parties can benefit here as well.
Whitehaven Rugby League Club will launch its own corporate raceday at Carlisle this summer.
Supporters of the west Cumbrian club will be offered discounted tickets and discounted travel to a meeting this summer.
International players Lee Paterson (Scotland), Rodney Pora (Papua New Guinea) and Seb Martins (France) will be on hand as details of the meeting are announced.
The three players are all hopeful of being part of this year's Rugby League World Cup, which will see some group games played in Cumbria.
