Wolves youngster in Ireland squad

Warrington teenager Tyrone McCarthy has been called up to Andy Kelly’s Ireland squad for the European Cup.

Kelly followed his Scottish and Italian counterparts in naming a training squad for the competition, which kicks off next month.

The former Dewsbury coach said: “In naming the 28 man training squad it represents a new dawn for RLI. Following on from our very successful World Cup in 2008 we have looked at bringing a number of the younger players who have been pushing for inclusion. The selection has been interesting especially if you consider the injured players not on the list such as Damien Blanch and Simon Finnigan.”

McCarthy, who played in the Wolves’ Challenge Cup final victory over Huddersfield, is joined in the squad by fellow debutants Luke Ambler (Leeds), Jason Golden (Harlequins) and James Coyle (Barrow).

Squad: Scott Grix, Sean Gleeson (both Wakefield), Bob Beswick (Halifax), Liam Harrison (Barrow), Karl Fitzpatrick (Salford), Liam Finn (Dewsbury), Luke Ambler (Leeds), Sean Hesketh (York), Pat Richards, Michael McIllorum (both Wigan), Gareth Haggerty (Harlequins), Tyrone McCarthy (Warrington), Jason Golden (Harlequins), Eamon O’Carroll (Wigan), Wayne Kerr (Oldham), Dave Allen (Barrow), Marcus St Hilaire (Oldham), James Coyle (Oldham), John Coleman (Dublin City Exiles), Brendan Guilfoyle (Treaty City Titans), Paddy Barcoe (Carlow Crusaders), Shane Mullay (Treaty City Titans), Shane Kelly (Tullamore Knights), Mark Toohey (Treaty City Titans), Alan MacNamara (Treaty City Titans), Tommy Ratahi (Carlow Crusaders).
