The annual Craig Hopson memorial rugby league game will be played this Sunday (12.45pm kick-off).

It will be played at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle as a curtain-raiser to the Castleford Tigers-Hull Kingston Rovers Super League match.

Craig Hopson was a Castleford soldier who was killed in action in 2009 in Afghanistan.

A match is played annually in his memory, raising money towards the memorial to keep the event going and also for the ABF Soldiers Charity.
