10 v 102
Calderdale College, Halifax
Wales Wheelchair claimed their fourth Rugby League Celtic Cup title in as many years after easily seeing off Scotland and Ireland in Halifax on Saturday.
Like in previous years, it was a three-game one-day tournament, all 80-minute matches.
Wales’ two victories means that they still have a 100% record in the competition with eight wins.
The first game saw the Scots come back from a 38-18 deficit at half-time to beat Ireland 52-42.
With half an hour gone, Ireland were 38-8 up and cruising. Seb Groves scored four of their tries with Stuart Walker, Steve Argent and Ben Hope adding one each. Tony Godward converted five of them.
Calum Young and Rob Hawkins each scored two first half tries for Scotland with Calum Young converting just once.
Scotland pulled it back to 38-32, then Ireland scored again through a Godward try, before Scotland scored a further 20 unanswered points to claim a dramatic win.
Hawkins added five second half tries to take his total game tally to seven, whilst Jay Anderson and Gavin Dobson each claimed one. Young added two further conversions and Hawkins one.
Wales then cruised to 102-10 win over Scotland after being 54-4 up at the break.
Stuart Williams scored five first half tries and kicked seven conversions with Harry Jones grabbing a hat-trick of touchdowns and Scotty Trig-Turner with two.
Scotland had the last score of the half through a Rob Hawkins try, but couldn’t make another comeback.
Wales continued to run riot in the second half as Alan Caron picked up a hat-trick, Jones and Trig-Turner, who also punched four conversions, each added two tries with Williams and Gary Taylor each scoring one. Taylor and Phil Davies punched one conversion each.
Scotland’s lone second half try came from John Williams that Hawkins converted.
