Rugby League: Skipper can't wait for World Cup kick-off
WALES rugby league captain Craig Kopczak can't wait for the action to start as his side tackle a Welsh Select XIII at Colwyn Bay's Parc Eirias this evening (6).
Wales are preparing for their World Cup campaign which starts against Italy at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday, October 26.
"It's exciting times," he said. "We have quite a strong squad with a lot of Super League experience and we've gelled well together since our last tournament.
"We haven't met up as a whole squad for a while so I suppose that's what the camp is for, but playing the game at international level is totally different. Every game is fantastic."
The Huddersfield Giants forward added: "It will be an unbelievable achievement for myself to lead the Wales side out at the Millennium.
"I can't wait for opening day against Italy and I'm sure it will rank as one of the highlights of my career."
