Danny Brough’s international allegiance has been one of this season’s hottest topics – now the Huddersfield halfback has lifted the lid on his reason to play for Scotland in this year’s World Cup.

Brough tells Rugby League World the sequence of events leading to him turning his back on England, and how he believes that he never really had a chance of making Steve McNamara’s squad.

Staying on the World Cup, we exclusively reveal how Stuart Fielden will also switch from England, and has made himself available for Mark Aston’s Ireland squad.

Jamie Jones-Buchanan could be in direct competition with Hull FC’s Danny Tickle for a place in McNamara’s team – but that hasn’t stopped the pair sitting down to chart Tickle’s fascinating career.

We also ask what can be done to end the dearth of English halfbacks in Super League, looking at how one club in particular is aiming to reverse the trend.

Swinton Lions assistant coach Ian Watson tells us what he really thinks about the club’s controversial use of the dual registration system, Castleford’s Justin Carney reveals how he almost had a completely different sporting career, and we look back to Wigan’s remarkable 1990-91 title-winning season.

With regular columns from the Nigel Wiskar of the Sunday People, Robbie Hunter-Paul and Dave Hadfield, it’s another packed issue.
