Your chance to train with England's rugby league stars
IT IS the dream of many young people to play rugby league with their England idols and learn from the country's finest.
From pulling off that try-creating pass to preventing a try with a last-ditch tackle, there are few better people to learn the game from than England's coach Steve McNamara.
In a prize that money can't buy, the Mail has teamed up with the Rugby Football League and England Rugby League to offer just that for one lucky school or rugby league club.
All young people need to do is design an England kit for the chance to win a VIP visit from the England coach and two England players.

They will run an exclusive training sessions working on core rugby league skills and drills.
Rugby Football League chief executive Nigel Wood said: "We are delighted our partnership with the Mail allows us to give children in Hull this unique opportunity to train with the England Rugby League coach and some of the sport's elite players.
"Rugby league prides itself as a sport that has retained strong links with its roots and a game whose biggest stars continue to be accessible, approachable and inspirational."
The England stars will also be available for photographs and autographs and will donate a signed England shirt to the winner before they leave.
This exclusive Mail competition is open to any junior community rugby league club or rugby league-playing school in Hull.
To enter, pupils or players are asked to submit a suggested design for the playing or training kit they think England should wear in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.
Each design should be on a single side of A4 paper with the pupil's name, age, school and/or club written clearly on the reverse. The most striking entries will be published in the Mail throughout November.
Mr Wood said: "I am sure the chance to rub shoulders with members of the England team will produce a fantastic response from schools and junior clubs throughout Hull, a city with a long tradition of producing quality young sportsmen and women.
"Rugby League plays an important role in the lives of many children in Hull and I look forward to seeing all the imaginative designs that come from that passion for sport."
The competition has been launched ahead of next Saturday's Autumn International Series match between England and France at MS3 Craven Park.
The game kicks off at 2.30pm, costing £12 for adults and £6 with concessions.
This week also marked a year until Hull plays its role as a host city in the Rugby League World Cup.
The winning kit designs will be chosen by England's coach Steve McNamara and Mail editor Neil Hodgkinson after the closing date of Friday, November 30.
Mr Hodgkinson said: "We are delighted to have joined with the Rugby Football League to offer this great opportunity for kids in our area.
"I'm a huge rugby league fan myself, so I know how exciting it will be to get the chance to train with the star players and be coached by Steve.
"They are great lads and this is a game that really is family-friendly, so I hope as many youngsters as possible get involved in this competition.
"I look forward to judging the entries. It should be a lot of fun."
