Leicester Lions to stage GB v Australia Test match

Leicester Lions will host a Test match between Great Britain and Young Australia at Beaumont Park on Tuesday, 18 September.

Ben Barker and Ty Proctor will captain the teams, and Lions promoter David Hemsley hopes more international events will follow at the East Midlands venue.

Hemsley said: "Fans often tell me that the old Blackbird Road stadium was a venue that staged many internationals.

"I would like to think Beaumont Park will be regarded in the same vein."
