One of Yorkshire's greatest sporting rivalries is set to be put to one side in support of an ambitious project in Hull aimed at helping people who have served in the armed forces.

Hull KR and Hull FC are joining forces to help build the world's first so-called 'veterans village' for armed forces veterans.

The city's two Super League sides are to put together a rugby league 'super team' to take on squad of rugby union internationals next month in aid of the charity - Hull4Heroes.

Former England star Mike Tindall is among the union names already signed up to play in the friendly match at Craven Park on March 4.

The money raised will help the charity achieve its ambition to build a village - giving veterans a place to live, rehabilitate and work.
