“ BARLA would like to thank the Cumbria County Committee for organising this game which will see their Open Age side take on the BARLA Lions in a final hit out before they embark on next month’s four game tour of Fiji.

“I have attended the majority of the Lions training sessions and seen the hard work that the coaches, players and management have put in for preparation of the tour and this is their final test. Cumbria County will be a perfect test for them who themselves are preparing for next months Open Age BARLA Three Counties Championship.”
