Warrington welcome Ireland to Wilderspool
Warrington Wolves show their support for the international campaign by welcoming the Ireland Rugby League team to Wilderspool for training purposes.
Wolves' Tyrone McCarthy has brought his fellow Ireland squad team-mates to Warrington this week to train at Wilderspool.
Tyrone made his mark on the Wolves first team towards the end of the season and has already experienced a taste of success. After having played in only two first team games Tyrone found himself in the victorious Challenge Cup Final team at Wembley, and soon after was selected for the Ireland international squad for the rugbyleague.com European Cup making his debut against Serbia.
With two games under his belt he has been training well under Ireland coach Andy Kelly.
'Tyrone is doing really well especially as we have played him out of position which he has coped well with. He put in hard work last week and is ready to step things up.'
Tyrone himself is enjoying the experience and is gaining a lot from it. He is part of a youthful side with many players also making their debuts within the competition.
Andy Kelly was delighted that Warrington made Wilderspool available to the team and explained why it provided a good training option for them. "We needed to identify somewhere with a stadium feel which Wilderspool has as it still operates as a training environment."
Andy reflects on the squad and training. "Training has gone well...and the positive has been the learning experience gained despite the disappointing result at the weekend.
"The guys have started the week positively. We need to tighten up on some areas so we are grateful to have another game this weekend."
