On Wednesday, 23rd January, the seventieth anniversary of the very first cross-code rugby game, former Hull Kingston Rovers and Great Britain star Alan Burwell will launch a brand new trophy to be competed for by the University of Hull's rugby league and union sides.

And for the first time, he will exclusively reveal the great secret of his rugby career at a public charity event that will raise money for both Rugby League Cares and Wooden Spoon.

At the launch of the Alan Burwell Cross-Code Challenge Cup, the man who scored Hull Kingston Rovers' only try at the 1964 Challenge Cup Final will reveal his secret career as an undercover Rugby Union player.

The trophy has been generously sponsored by Hull FC, Hull Kingston Rovers, Hull Rugby Football Club, and the Wally Simpson Fund administered by Hull and District Youth League.

The event will raise funds for both Rugby League Cares and Wooden Spoon, and take place on Wednesday, 23rd January at The University of Hull.

Please find attached a press pack relating to launch. The committee will be grateful for all publicity that will generate public interest in the event and maximise its fundraising potential.
