WHS is very proud of our past pupils Andrew and Matthew Coade who played a fine game on their first caps for Ireland in rugby league on Saturday 30th June.
Matt started at fly half and Andrew at centre. Against a much larger team, Ireland had to front up early and the first five minutes were all big hits. But in the sixth minute Andrew ran in his first international try for Ireland which was then converted by Matthew.
At half time Ireland were well ahead with a combined score between the brothers of 30 points. Ireland went on to win well at 74-0. The next fixture is at home against Canada in August and then on to the world Cup in 2019.
