Victory for Australian rugby team which fielded four British brothers - the first siblings to play for the same team in over a century.
Wildcats winger Ben Cockayne is rewarded for his fine start to the Super League season with a call-up to the England elite training squad.
Former Hull FC Rugby player Steve Prescott has raised £100,000 over the course of 2012 for a range of charities, it has been announced.
England rugby league head coach Steve McNamara coached four brothers who played together in Australia today.
He coached Sam, George and Tom Burgess when he was in charge at Bradford, and he hasn't ruled out all four Burgess brothers being selected for England at the World Cup later this year.
The four brothers who played in a top-flight rugby match alongside each other in Australia have strong roots in West Yorkshire.
Luke Burgess, who played most of his English career for Leeds, faced Sam and Thomas in separate matches when the pair played for Bradford. Three of the four brothers have played together at various stages but never have the quartet taken to the field together at any level.
Their team won in Australia today.

The rugby league community is mourning the loss of former Leeds Rhinos coach Graham Murray, who's died from a heart attack in his native Australia at the age of only 58.
After a successful playing and coaching career down under, Murray arrived at Leeds in 1998, and made an immediate impact, transforming the club from serial underachievers to major contenders.
He guided them to the inaugural Grand Final in his first season, and won the Challenge Cup Final at Wembley in his second, laying the foundations for more than a decade of success.
The former Hull and Wakefield rugby star Steve Prescott has been told by doctors he'll never be able to eat or drink again. The 39-year-old's been battling a rare form of stomach cancer for the last seven years. He's set up his own foundation - raising money to try and find a cure.
Kevin Sinfield has been named in the Rhino's squad for Monday's clash against Widnes despite concerns over a thumb injury suffered on international duty.
England skipper SInfield was withdrawn from last night's win over the Exiles citing a problem with his thumb. He said initially he thought he had dislocated it, but with no news of a diagnosis, the injury-hit Rhinos have called upon him.
Wakefield prop Andy Raleigh has become the first of the Wildcats' out-of-contract players to sign a new deal for 2104.
The 32-year-old has made 35 appearances for Wakefield since joining them from Huddersfield 18 months ago and says it was an easy decision to extend his stay.
– Richard Agar, Wakefield coach
Andy was very consistent last year and we feel he is getting back to his best.
His experience and consistency has been a strong asset to us in his time here and we're glad to have that for another season."
