Halifax will host a ‘Meet the Italians’ event at the Shay tonight ahead of Sunday’s World Cup showdown between the Azzurri and Tonga.

The game, which is on course to attract the ground’s biggest crowd since Fax were in the top flight with the East and South Stands already sold out, will decide whether Italy make the knockout stages.

Tonight’s event will include a question and answer session with Italy coach Carlo Napolitano, the former Salford player, and captain Anthony Minichello, the former Kangaroo full back and a multiple NRL Grand Finalist.

Admission is free, the bar opens at 5.30pm and the Q and A session will run between 6pm and 7.30pm.
