THE IRISH ARE COMING!
The 2012 Donnybrook Cup between the USA Tomahawks and Ireland Wolfhounds will be played on St.Patrick's Day, Saturday March 17 in Philadelphia. Rugby League Ireland have confirmed with the American National Rugby League that the two nations will square off for the eighth time in the USA.
Last year the Wolfhounds beat the Tomahawks by 26-8 and the USA will be looking to avenge that loss after a successful Rugby League World Cup Qualifying series in which they won the Atlantic Region by defeating South Africa and Jamaica to advance to their first ever Rugby League World Cup in 2013.
The series currently stands at four wins by the USA Tomahawks and three wins to the Ireland Wolfhounds.
