The Dragons face Serbia at Parc Stebonheath on Saturday, October 15 in the opening Rugby League World Cup Qualifier. Ian comments, “I was delighted to be named in the 29, and to then make the 22 man squad was an achievement in itself. I now have the opportunity to push for my debut so I just need to work hard and hopefully earn my chance”
