Celtic Challenge 2022

The long standing tradition for the Celtic Challange between Wales and Ireland got back underway this year with a bit of a twist.

Firstly, it was Wales's turn to host the Juniors and as ever the Matchroom was the venue. Friday night saw a warm up knock out competition being played, which was won by Brad Ferguson, beating Rhys Morgans in the final. That was however, just the warm up...

The first session got underway at 10am on the Saturday with a strong start for the Welsh, taking the session 15-9.
