Doncaster will embrace World Cup visitors Samoa - Carl Hall

Doncaster will be Samoa’s training base at the Rugby League World Cup 2021.

"I'm delighted that we'll be hosting Samoa,” said Hall.

“For me it’s a personal thing, Samoa are very close to me because I was brought up by a Samoan family. I'm really looking forward to welcoming the team to Doncaster.

"Hopefully Doncaster will become Samoan for the tournament and help the team not feel homesick. I think the people of the town will embrace it. I know the management and the players of the Samoan team will embrace Doncaster.
