Scotland and England will play out what may be a Four Nations decider on Wednesday afternoon (kick-off 3.30pm) as they open day two of the Student Rugby League Four Nations at Pontypridd RFC.
The two auld enemies won their opening matches on Sunday in convincing fashion and with Scotland looking for their first ever title, the battle swords will be well and truly sharpened for the afternoon clash.
However neither Ireland or Wales are out of it yet despite both sides having a poor start at the weekend.
Ireland started well against England but after having a player sinbinned, the favourites started scoring and didn’t look back.
Wales suffered their heaviest-ever Four Nations defeat as they lost to Scotland but are now determined to bounce back against an equally shellshocked Irish knowing they must win big to stay in contention for the title. Kick-off for this game is 7pm.
Wales head coach Craig Fisher said: “We’ve done a thorough review of the Scotland game, and as a squad we’ve drawn a line through that game and will not speak about it again. The lads know my standards and have their own high standards and that performance was unacceptable and was not representative of the talent in the group and of Wales Rugby League. We feel galvanised now as a collective and the mood is very positive. The lads are ready to right some wrongs on Wednesday.”
Entry to both matches costs just £5 for adults, £3 concessions and free for U16s.
