5 St Helens based players included in the Lionhearts rugby league squad tour of Canada.
The squad for this year's North West Lionhearts tour to Canada has been confirmed.
5 players from St. Helens based clubs have been selected:
• Jordan Gibson – Haydock
• Danny Gee – Haydock
• Matthew Norton - Clock Face Miners
• Liam Quinn - Thatto Heath Crusaders
• Ben Roberts - Thatto Heath Crusaders
In the first game, the Lionhearts came away victorious, winning 38-6. A first half hat trick from Matthew Norton of Clock Face Miners was the difference in a close first period. Coach Mick Blakeley said “Our lads played well considering the number of changes we made throughout the game, and we can take nothing away from the Canadians who gave a great account of themselves, played in the right spirit and took their chance well. Our experience though showed through in the second half.”
Joint Coach John Ellis added, “The game itself really shook things up for how we plan to approach Saturday, some players made us stand up and take notice. It certainly hasn’t made picking the Test side any easier.”
