England v Pacific Islanders - 2 for the price of 1
**2 for 1 tickets for adults, �10 for juniors for a limited period only**
England Team Manager Martin Johnson will face his first Test in charge of England on Saturday November 8 (kick off 2.30pm) when they take on the Pacific Islanders in the first Investec Challenge match. What better way to start the international rugby season than by supporting your country at Twickenham, and get 2 adult tickets for the price of 1?
This limited offer ends midnight next Tuesday 28th October.
Fans at the 82,000 capacity Home of England Rugby will have the opportunity to watch the first outing of Johnson's England. Players in the 32-man England squad include Danny Cipriani (London Wasps), James Haskell (London Wasps), Toby Flood (Leicester Tigers) and Mathew Tait (Sale Sharks), and you can be there!
The match will be the ultimate test of strength as England take on the powerful Pacific Islanders, with representatives from Samoa, Fiji and Tonga, ready to test England to the limit. Players include Soane Tonga'uiha (Northampton Saints), Sunia Koto (London Welsh), Aleki Lutui (Worcester Warriors), Daniel Leo (London Wasps), Moses Rauluni (Saracens), Sailosi Tagicakibau (London Irish), Seilala Mapusua (London Irish), Seru Rabeni (Leicester Tigers), Kameli Ratuvou (Saracens) and Census Johnston (Saracens)
England last faced the Samoans and Tongans in their own right at the 2007 Rugby World Cup, with both nations making England work hard en route to the final. With the strength of three nations merged into one team it's one game you can't miss.
Martin Johnson said: "The Pacific Islanders have some great athletes, players like Mapusua and Tagicakibau love to run the ball, they're powerful and dangerous.
"It's not a warm up game and one thing's for sure - it's going to be a full on Test match."
