That is the prize Raiders won for winning the Samsung try of the season award for Jamie Redmayne’s superb team try against Dorking last season.

Anyone is welcome to attend to watch the training session which begins at 7pm, before there will be an opportunity for photos and autographs. A question and answer session will then take place with the yet-to-be-revealed England players.

Raiders head coach Kieron Dawson said: “It will be great for the lads. They’ll get to hear a different voice and we’ll try to get some different perspective.”

The try, which was entered into the competiton by Raiders’ Matt Farnes, was a stunning team effort and was rounded off by Redmayne.

After scrum-half Calum Waters had sparked the attack from deep, Worthing’s backs and forwards combined superbly to confound the Dorking defence. Eventually Redmayne hit a devastating line off the final offload, outstripping one would-be tackler before stepping past another to dot down.

Worthing beat entries from Barking RFC and Grammar School at Leeds, who finished second and third respectively, to win the training session.
