10:43am Tuesday 1st October 2013 in Sport
YORK star Ross Divorty is poised to grace the Rugby League World Cup after being named in Wales’ 23-man squad.
The former York City Knights second-row, a product of New Earswick All Blacks ARLC, has kept his place in the Dragons party despite missing last autumn’s internationals through injury, having been an ever-present in their previous tournament, the 2011 Four Nations.
The 24-year-old, who scored seven tries in 29 appearances for Kingstone Press Championship big-guns Halifax this year, is the son of former Great Britain star Gary Divorty and qualifies for Wales via his Welsh-born grandmother. He made his international debut in 2009 and has 11 caps, with two tries.
Wales squad: Neil Budworth (Moranbah Miners, Australia), Ross Divorty (Halifax), Gil Dudson, Ben Flower, Rhodri Lloyd (Wigan), Jake Emmitt, Jordan James (Salford), Ben Evans, Elliot Kear (Bradford), Rhys Evans, Rhys Williams (Warrington), Dan Fleming (Castleford), James Geurtjens (Norths Devils, Australia), Danny Jones (Keighley), Craig Kopczak, Larne Patrick (Huddersfield) Peter Lupton (Workington), Rob Massam, Christiaan Roets (North Wales Crusaders), Matt Seamark (Wynnum Manly Seagulls, Australia), Anthony Walker (St Helens), Ian Webster (Central Queensland Capras, Australia), Lloyd White (Widnes).
