21-man squad named for final World Cup group match against Ireland

Wales head coach John Kear has named his 21-man squad for the final group match against Ireland at Rugby League World Cup 2017.

Gavin Bennion, who linked up with the squad when they arrived in Townsville, is in the squad and could be in line for his Wales debut. 

All 17 of the players who featured in the defeat to Fiji last weekend have been named in the 21. 

Matty Seamark, who missed the Fiji clash because of an arm injury, is back in the squad.

This will be Wales' only game that is live on FREE TO AIR TV after it was confirmed that Free Sports TV will show it live from 7am, along with Premier Sports, who will broadcast it in HD.

Free Sports is available on all platforms, as it says, free of charge, apart from Virgin.

The BBC's highlights coverage will be confirmed closer to the time.

WALES' 21-MAN SQUAD: Danny Ansell, Matty Barron, Gavin Bennion, Joe Burke, Michael Channing, Courtney Davies, Ben Evans, Matty Fozard, Andy Gay, Regan Grace, Dalton Grant, Phil Joseph, Elliot Kear, Morgan Knowles, Craig Kopczak, Rhodri Lloyd, Ben Morris, Steve Parry, Christiaan Roets, Matty Seamark, Rhys Williams
