Match Report

Ireland Masters
The first Masters International Festival of the year saw Wales host both England and Ireland in a tri-nations at Bethesda Rugby Club writes Barry Andrews.

On a warm spring afternoon in North Wales, it saw three teams made up of players over 35 years old representing their national sides in a festival with every game finishing 0-0, as is the ruling in Masters Rugby League, no matter how many tries are scored.

Although every game finishes as a draw, the event saw every country give it their all to get themselves over the white line.

The first game of the day saw hosts take on Ireland. Both sides were unable to keep hold of the ball early on, but both grew into it as time went on.

Paul Moore of Ireland went closest but unfortunately ran out of steam as he was tackled into touch.

The only try of the game came Wales’ way as Gareth Evans found the only gap in the defence before going over the line.

Idris Evans found himself in behind the Irish defence on numerous occasions but was too fast for his teammates to be in support.
