Mark Roughsedge and Jim Dyson have named their extended squad for the 2021 Celtic Cup, which will be hosted in Scotland.
The Bravehearts will take on Wales and Ireland on their home turf, with the competition taking place on June 12th at the Sport & Exercise Pleasance, The University of Edinburgh.
The tournament will be the team’s first matches in over a year, and their first matches under new joint Head Coach, Mark Roughsedge.
‘This will be the biggest squad to represent Scotland Wheelchair RL for a number of years, which is so important for us. This will help us to create a healthy competition for places which will drive our standards up.
The Celtic Cup provides a fantastic environment for us to test ourselves and benchmark against two very strong sides. It will also allow us to understand where we are at right now and the areas that we need to prioritise as we close in on the World Cup.’
