International rugby league is heading to Wales..

Wales is set to host an international rugby league fixture in November as qualification for the 2021 RLWC begins.

Wales will take on Ireland in an international fixture on the 11th of November at the Racecourse Stadium in Wrexham with John Kear’s side looking for their first win since they qualified for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup, which saw them lose to Ireland in the group stages.

The game will be a qualification match for the 2021 RLWC which is set to be hosted in England and Wales with League One’s Doncaster bidding to host a game at their Keepmoat Stadium.

Wales Rugby League chief executive Chris Thair said:

“We’re delighted to be hosting our game against Ireland at the Racecourse Stadium. The ground has a long association with rugby league.

“As the top two teams in the European Championship will qualify for the World Cup, we want a big crowd in Wrexham to hopefully cheer on the lads to success.

“We’ll be working closely with both Wrexham Football Club and Wrexham Council to promote the match over the next couple of months.

“I know that John, his backroom staff and the players are all eager to put on a good show in the European Championship.”
