Can we not send macca to Scotland instead?

Quite why the best halfback in the country is being overlooked for England selection is something the RFL need to be asking their coach

Agreed 100%

We've been bemoaning the lack of a quality halfback for a couple of decades, we finally get one and we make him an outcast for showing the very same qualities that we all admire when looking back at the likes of Murphy, Gregory and even Goulding.

He's a cocky, arrogant, sometimes stroppy but often brilliant, creative and dangerous player who won't have any respect for the Ausies and Kiwi's.

he is understood to have been omitted not only from the elite training squad but also from a list of 40 names that McNamara was required to submit to World Cup organisers last month.

Are all nations in the World Cup required to do this? Whats the reason months away from the tournament?

Agreed, I'd have him starting never mind in the squad. I'm led to believe McNamara has no time for Brough and he has absolutely no chance of making the squad. Ridicolous. Would be a shame if he ends up as the next Briers who was ignored when in heindseight he should have been a regular.

At least Briers had the courage of his convictions and never jumped ship to England.

He's told the world he's Scottish and so he should continue to play for Scotland.
