Around the Leagues: how have Wales internationals been getting on at their clubs?

Despite a shorter fixture list because of postponements, there were some Welsh internationals in action last weekend and we round-up how they got on in the latest edition of Around the Leagues.

In Super League, Wales’ captain at the 2017 Rugby League World Cup, Craig Kopczak, came off the bench for Salford Red Devils in their 34-2 defeat at front runners St Helens.

For Saints, meanwhile, Regan Grace started on the left wing and played a full 80 minutes.

Elsewhere, Ben Flower was named at starting prop in Wigan Warriors’ 32-16 comeback win over Widnes Vikings.

Gil Dudson and Lloyd White weren’t available for the Vikings due to injury.

In the Championship, three internationals – Rhodri Lloyd, Andy Bracek and Gavin Bennion – were all in action for Swinton Lions in their 52-12 defeat to Toronto Wolfpack.

Rob Massam was on the wing for Rochdale Hornets against Toulouse Olymique XIII, while Blake Turner, a possible star for the future who came through North Wales Crusaders’ system, made his debut for Alan Kilshaw’s men.

Finally, both Rhys Evans and Larne Patrick featured for Leigh Centurions in their 38-30 defeat at home to Featherstone Rovers.

All League 1 fixtures, including Crusaders’ trip to Workington and West Wales’ clash with Doncaster, fell victim of the weather that has affected large parts of the United Kingdom.

Check back next Monday as we continue our Around the Leagues series.
