He is not yet tied to Scotland and he is also eligible to play for England (where he was born).

Sorry, you're right Caldi, I had my 'puter on split screen and I didn't notice it had cut the right hand side of the squad off the screen, so a few were missed off. I though the list looked light! :oops: Duly edited now.

Well the lists rather show the point i was making that despite our optimism we also agree that there is almost no one in our squad ready/ capable of being in the top 40 or so in England. Thankfully it is a team game and we have some talent in our non EQP ( as indeed do most teams) . However we need to accept that we are not yet a team of world beaters !!!!!

You should read Tony Cascarino’s autobiography, he hadn’t even met his ‘third’ grandmother before he played his first game for Ireland, if I remember correctly, he hadn’t even been to the country before playing the first match which was played overseas.

Eddie Jones take note!
