There will be a 45-minute first half of football followed by 40 minutes of tag rugby league between the sides.

“I’m sure the rugby boys will be taking this as competitively as we are.”
Lokos’ season kicks off this month. Secretary Steve Bamford said: “It’s an unusual concept and the Lokos players are looking forward to taking on Albion at both sports.”
