RLWC Round-Up: O'Hagan scores on Ireland debut

The Rugby League World Cup kicked off on Saturday with England triumphing 60-6 against Samoa to truly stamp the hosts' mark on the tournament and, over the opening two days, York RLFC had representation.

While Scottish prop Jack Teanby was named as eighteenth man and didn't take to the field against Italy for the Bravehearts' 28-4 defeat at Kingston Park, the Knights' Irish connection had a much better Sunday afternoon.

Starting at hooker, Brendan O'Hagan - recognised more as a half-back - scored a debut try for the Wolfhounds in their comprehensive 48-2 victory over Jamaica. Centre Jacob Ogden was on the receiving end of that scoreline, pulling on the Jamaica shirt in the Reggae Warriors' World Cup debut.

Further Knights connections will be shown over the coming days with Wales - with Bailey Antrobus included - set to play against Cook Islands on Wednesday.
