Scotland name World Cup squad


Scotland have named their 24-man squad for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

Coach Steve McCormack has named Danny Brough as captain, with a very young squad named.

A host of experienced players have been ruled out due to injury including Leeds prop Keith Galloway, St George Illawarra centre Euan Aitken and Penrith hooker Peter Wallace and  North Queensland pair Lachlan Coote and Kane Linnett.

“It is a young squad but that’s exciting, too,” said McCormack.

“When we took our youngest ever team to play in France two years ago, I said some of them would be on the plane to Australia and a lot of them will be on Sunday.”
