What is the matter with Carter? It can't be doing his Scotland prospects any good not playing matches!!

That is something that leaves a bit of a sour taste . McCormack wants a strong squad ... Players want to play in a WC , so they come together purely for this tournament . These players have zero allegiance and only want to join the month long jamboree . No thanks to playing Ireland next year at a windswept out ground ! But truly committed players who do all the treadmill work in minor games and turn out all the time get pushed out . Difficult to resist temptation but still must grate a bit . Will the coach stick to the loyal troops??? We'll see but wouldn't hold my breath if top stars want a gig .

do you reckon he will be expecting inclusion with around 18 new super League and NRL players included ?

Well he is in the 40 man squad with a good chance of making the final 24, so why not? As DavidM says it just depends how loyal McCormack is with the loyal players that turn up for the less glamorous games.

Defensively strong you'd hope but you wonder how many points are there . Matty and Callum massive holes . The 7,9, 13 axis stands out , so if they shut Lupton down its job done for them you'd reckon .

Recruitment must centre around creating and scoring points to give us more potency , more zip and more dimensions in our attacking game , which will make us a better team to watch and one with more points behind the scrum . We have the muscle , we need the silky skills

Erm ... And back three players who can catch a bomb or diffuse a grubber !!! Throw as much at Briscoe as we can at Acton .
