Harlequins Rugby League will take on Australian NRL champions Manly Sea Eagles next year.
The Eagles will touch down at The Twickenham Stoop on February 19 for a warm-up game ahead of their World Club Challenge match against Leeds Rhinos on March 1. It will be first-ever meeting between the two clubs.
Quins boss Brian McDermott said: "Playing Manly in a warm up gives the club a chance to challenge themselves against the best team from Australia.
"The players are excited about this, as I'm sure will be our fans. It promises to be a great start to our campaign."
Quins skipper Rob Purdham is currently out in Australia with England's World Cup squad, but is yet to feature. * QUINS are holding reserve team trials for potential rugby league stars on Sunday, November 23, at Roehampton Vale.
The trials are open to all player aged between 18-21. Anyone interested in attending should email: firstname.lastname@example.org
