The Rugby League World Cup trophy paid a visit to Reactiv Media in Elland yesterday.

Tonga will take on Italy at the Shay on November 10 when the tournament comes to England.

Managing Director Tony Abbott said: “We worked alongside the Council to get a game here and it was a lovely gesture to bring the trophy down to us.

“There were a few wide open mouths when people saw it. It was a fantastic day. It’s great for the local community and I hope everyone supports it.”
