The Tongan forward, signed from Parramatta Eels last year, will be one of many high profile names at the showpiece event to launch the new rugby league season.

Moimoi will join fans and players at the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester from 6.00pm. Supporters are making sure they don’t miss out by snapping up tickets fast for this spectacular live show.

Leigh play Keighley at the Sports Village on Sunday in a friendly, kicking off at 2pm.

More tickets are being made available on the day at the Rugby League Rocks event giving supporters the opportunity to welcome in the new era of the game in style by partying with their favourite players.

Hosted by former European and Commonwealth champion Iwan Thomas, BBC presenter Mark Chapman and sports broadcaster Natalie Quirk, Rugby League Rocks is an all-action live show featuring headline act Reverend and the Makers who will play a live set including their top 10 single ‘Heavyweight Champion of the World’.

The event will have added stardust from a host of Rugby League stars including Ryan Hall, Eorl Crabtree, Gareth Ellis, Keiran Dixon, Josh Charnley, Dan Sarginson, Paddy Flynn, Chris Hill, Daryl Clark, Kyle Amor, Scott Moore, Chris Riley, Mason Caton-Brown, Paul Wood and Chev Walker.

Super League general manager Blake Solly said: “To welcome in the new era with a fantastic entertainment package including Reverend and the Makers just shows how exciting 2015 is going to be for fans, players and everyone involved in rugby league.

“Supporters are going to get the chance to interact with the extraordinary athletes of our game as they entertain the crowd.

“Ticket sales are going really well and we will be making more available on the day of the event because we don’t want fans to miss out on what is sure to be an amazing evening.”
