On 7th September 1895, the famous Mount Pleasant slope held it’s first game under the new code as Batley hosted Hull FC, making the now Fox’s Biscuits Stadium the oldest in the game.
On 22nd January 2017 Toronto Wolfpack played their first professional Rugby League game, also against Hull FC, becoming the first trans-Atlantic team in the history of the sport.
On April 8th 2018, the ages collide, as the newest club in the game, visit the oldest stadium in the game. Trailblazers and History Makers. Make sure you see it!
