Ferres anticipating an amazing atmosphere
England international second row Brett Ferres cannot wait to play in Saturday's sell-out clash against Ireland at Huddersfield's John Smith's Stadium.
The 27-year-old former Castleford Tiger, Wakefield Wildcat and Bradford Bull will feel right at home at the weekend as England are playing at the home of the now Huddersfield Giant.
Ferres knows all about the electric atmosphere the John Smith's Stadium can generate following the Giants' success this season and with no tickets remaining for the game he is expecting a feast of noise.
England need a victory following last Saturday's loss to Australia and Ferres, a surprise selection ahead of Liam Farrell, is excited ahead of the contest.
"It's a massive place Huddersfield. To sell it out for 25,000 or something like that it'll be absolutely fantastic," he told Sky Sports.
"We've only seen it this year with 10,000 people in it and that was pretty special and they made a lot of noise.
"I can't wait for this weekend to run out in front of that."
Youngster George Burgess is expected to retain his place in Steve McNamara's match-day squad and the imposing forward, who scored a try on his debut against the Kangaroos, believes the team can do a long way.
"I think we've got a great squad building and I think we can really do something special if we put our mind to it," said Burgess.
