RL stars come together

Some of rugby league’s biggest names will come together in support of Super League stalwart Feka Palea’aesina, following the announcement of his upcoming testimonial events.

The former New Zealand international was granted a three-month testimonial by the Rugby Football League and his committee have announced the first two of a number of events planned to celebrate the career of one of Super League’s most iconic players.

Former team mates and international stars Sam Tomkins, Gareth Ellis, Motu Tony and Kylie Leuluai will all join Palea’aesina for ‘Feka & Friends’, the official testimonial dinner which will take place at the KCOM Stadium on Sunday 30th April from 2pm.

Fans will have the chance to get up close and personal with the special guests, plus enjoy a three-course meal, raffle and auction.

VIP places are available for £50 per person, with regular tickets priced at just £35 per person.

The committee will also be hosting a testimonial golf day on Tuesday 16th May at Cottingham Parks Golf Club, with a shotgun start at 1:30pm.

Guests will be treated to bacon sandwiches and coffee on arrival, a two-course meal after their round and a prize presentation, whilst a number of well-known faces from the world of Hull FC are also expected to feature.

A team of four people can enter for £160 or individual places can also be booked for £40 per person.

You can also sponsor the event or individual holes on the course from as little as £40.

Hull FC’s Executive Director, James Clark, said: “Feka has been a tremendous servant to the game of Rugby League and it is fantastic that the Rugby Football League have seen fit to honour that dedication and service with a testimonial.

“The organising committee are working hard to put together a programme of events that are befitting such a tremendous player, who is recognised not only for his on-field performances but his unrivalled efforts in the local community.

“I’m sure in return that fans will rally around both these events and other activities planned to acknowledge his contribution to a number of great clubs.”
