Are Wolves Irish or Ireland Wolves?

Are Wolves Irish or Ireland Wolves?

Right so, as you may know, I'm an Irish Wolves fan, and as I'm sure you're aware, Wolves has 5 Irish internationals in it's team.

The Irish squad had 15% wolves players against Northern Ireland and with 4 Irish players playing, here's how they panned out:

Ward - Ward made his international debut, but looks a shoe in to replace the ageing Kevin Kilbane at left back. He picked up a goal for his efforts too. He was fantastic at getting up the touchline and sending in crosses. He will start against Scotland as well on Sunday.

Foley - He played central midfield in a kind of holding position, quite Henry like. He kept his cool, and decided where most moves went. Although he will not start the Scotland game, he is around that first choice position of right back, deemed by many as Ireland's best right back. Although this game has showed that he can cut it at midfield, even as a Henry replacement!

Hunt - Came off the bench and had a fantastic game. Himself and Ward constantly linking on the left side. His performance has earned him a starting place against Scotland.

Keogh - Also came off the bench. All in all, was quite poor. He was offside for a sitter. Although this was unsurprising as he missed two tap ins against Wales earlier this year.

Doyle - Although Ireland's no. 1 striker, missed due to injury. So for the Scotland, Ward will start in left back, and Hunt on the left wing. Foley and Keogh will be on the bench.
