Brough to captain Scotland
Scotland Rugby League have announced that their captain at the 2013 Rugby League World Cup will be scrum-half Danny Brough.
“We are lucky to have a number of outstanding players representing us in this year’s World Cup,” said Scotland head coach Steve McCormack. “Danny has had a fantastic season both individually and as captain of the Huddersfield Giants. His leadership quality is something that I’ve kept an eye on during the year and he is an ideal choice to lead us into the competition.”
McCormack handed Brough his Scotland debut in his first game as coach in 2004 against Ireland, when Brough was a youngster at York City Knights and about to embark on his Super League career having signed for Hull FC. Brough, who has won 10 Scotland caps during which he has scored 59 points, is named on the shortlist for the Super League Man of Steel award.
Scotland will confirm their final RLWC2013 squad next Wednesday, 2 October.
