    According to his Wiki :blush: He was invited to play for the 2017 WC Pool B qualifyers last year.

    It ends saying he plays for some yawnion club..

    I seem to remember he played in the qualifiers last year and they said it was his swan song before retiring.

    At least keary has "Irish blood"......I suspect vidot & nikorima have only sank a pint of Guinness once or twice..

    Also..that team Rory has posted a few posts up...is that for real or has he just picked out Irish sounding names??

    Reminds me of that time some absolute Nob wrote out a Jamaican team and named every black player in super league..lol

    actually Sneyd was named in the initial world cup squad in 2013, but didn't make the cut, you'd think he'd definitely be making it this year. It doesn't sound like you blokes are believing me, so go and search for yourselves.

    yeah ik, ive looked around the internet, found nothing on ayshford being irish. Vidots wiki page and nathaniel roaches say they have irish heritage. Although i wouldnt want vidot, roache or nikorima in my team. Ireland 2008, that was when passion was unbelievably high.

    The Ireland Rugby League has a comment on a photo of Liam Finn and Scott Grix, and there was a question saying "Is Brad Singleton playing for Ireland?" the reply by the Ireland rugby league page was "Brad is in the 40 man squad. The final squad will be out next week" So the Leeds forward is just another one to add to the list. Do not count out Ireland.
