This week we’ve seen the likes of Jamaica and Samoa name their squads for the Rugby league World Cup and now Scotland have followed suit with an impressive squad of their own.
Scotland have included a number of Super League stars including James Bell who was unlucky to not be included in St Helens’ Grand Final 17 after a terrific maiden season at the club and playing a key role in the semi-final win over Salford.
Speaking of which, Salford’s Ryan Brierley who scored twice in the play-offs getting a lovely try against the Saints an a vital try against former club Huddersfield is also named.
Brierley’s former Leigh teammates Ben Hellewell of Halifax and Toulouse’s Matty Russell – who will be looking for a new club during the tournament – are also included.
One man who already has a new club for 2023, Sam Luckley, will look to show Hull KR fans what they’re going to get next year and will be joined by fellow Robin Kane Linnett in perhaps the biggest name included in the Scotland squad.
Jack Teanby, who confirmed his future today by staying at York, has also been included alongside the experienced Dale Ferguson.
Meanwhile, Liam Hood of Wakefield will provide some quality at nine and is joined by a former Trinity player in fullback Alex Walker.
Scotland have also named their Wheelchair squad for the most inclusive tournament our sport has seen.
Here’s both in full:
