WARRINGTON half back Lee Briers will be assisting Wales head coach and ex-Wolves player Iestyn Harris to plot the downfall of the pluck Italians in the second game of the World Cup’s opening double-header at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday.
The pair, who attended a Welsh legends dinner at The Halliwell Jones Stadium on Friday, have Wolves players Rhys Evans, Ben Evans and Rhys Williams in the squad to help them attempt to bring down to earth an Italy side that shocked England with a 15-14 win in a warm-up game at Salford on Saturday.
Former Lymm High School pupil Jacob Emmitt (Salford) and ex-Priestley College student Anthony Walker (St Helens) are also in the running to figure, as is Lloyd White (Widnes Vikings) who is hoping to follow in the footsteps of his uncle - former Warrington winger Phil Ford - by competing in a World Cup.
