It’s ‘mate v mate’ as rugby league’s 2012 International Origin Series gets under way on Saturday, with England taking on the Exiles at Langtree Park, St Helens.
The concept of the national team pitting themselves against the best Australian, New Zealand and South Sea Island players in the Stobart Super League was born last year with a one-off game. The Exiles won that one 16-12, thanks to a last-gasp try from Wigan’s George Carmon.
