Spain and Italy are the only 2 teams that lie between Ireland and the 2021 World Cup in England. The top 2 teams out of Ireland, Spain and Italy will secure their
place at the 2021 World Cup. After a promising European Championships and a squad average age of only just 22, Rugby League in Ireland is in a promising place.
Stuart Littler handed out 10 new caps and with all of this added experience the squad is building up nicely ahead of next years qualifying games.
Ireland are due to play both Spain and Italy in October/November of 2019, with Spain away and Italy at home.
