This weekend kicks off the 2017 Kingstone Press League 1 season as South Wales Ironmen welcome Whitehaven RL to the Wern Sports Park. Kick off 3:00pm Sunday 5th March 2017.
Head Coach Phil Carleton will be looking to his side to bounce back following last weekends disappointing Challenge Cup exit to Oxford RL. Carleton comments:-
” Last weekend was a disappointment but we’ve put it behind us and moved on. Whitehaven have a great pedigree in the game. They will be keen to put down a marker following relegation last season but we shouldn’t fear anyone. They’ve got a long trip down here so we’ll see how they react to that.”
” We’ve got a strong squad out. We’ve shown in patches what we can do this season. It’s now time to start delivering.”
It’s a double header at the Wern tomorrow with a young Ironmen side taking on Welsh Students following the Whitehaven game. KO 5:00pm. It’s a World Cup year for the students as well as the senior side this year and Sunday’s game will be a key part of the Students preparation.
