THE England Wheelchair rugby league team have completed a series whitewash of Australia under Warrington-born head coach Mark Roughsedge.

Former Sir Thomas Boteler High School student Roughsedge, 35, guided his team to a 58-20 win over the Wheelaroos this morning to secure a 2-0 series whitewash.

Tom Halliwell, Jack Brown and Nathan Collins scored two tries each in Wollongong, with further efforts from Ryan Richardson, Sebastien Bechara and Wayne Boardman.

This latest victory followed Monday's stunning first-Test success in Sydney when England romped to an 84-28 victory, with skipper Brown scoring five tries.

“They are a world-class team who have gone to another level since being included in the England Performance Unit that we launched shortly after the 2017 World Cup,” said Rugby Football League chief executive Ralph Rimmer, who attended the Wheelchair International at the Whitlam Leisure Centre in Liverpool, south west Sydney.

“They showed that this summer by becoming the first team ever to beat reigning world champions France on home soil, now they have stepped up again in Australia.”

Roughsedge grew up in Latchford, an ardent Warrington Wolves fan.

And he was part of the Wire community set-up and scholarship before moving to Kent, where he is a sports development officer and doorstep sport advisor for Streetgames.

He has also overseen wins against North Queensland and Queensland on this current tour.
