France coach Richard Agar believes that Danny Brough‘s commitment to the Scotland international team makes him a fine example for other players to follow.
The Huddersfield halfback has been named in Steve McCormack’s Scotland squad for the European Championship, which begins this Friday, when Wales travel to Workington to play the Scots.
While many Super League players have been unavailable for selection for their national teams, for a variety of reasons, Brough was keen to pull on the dark blue jersey once again.
Agar, who will have to find a plan to deal with the playmaker when his team face the Scots in Galashiels, thinks that attitude is worthy of praise.
“If Danny Brough plays for Scotland he’s obviously going to be influential,” Agar told Love Rugby League.
“If Danny does play then it’s of tremendous credit to him. There’s plenty of guys can find an excuse to get out of these games at the end of the year.
“I think Danny’s commitment to Scotland, for a player who is a very recent Man of Steel and is a club captain of a team in the top four of Super League, is very admirable.
“That passion and commitment is superb, and there’s maybe one or two guys knocking about in the game who should take a leaf out of his book.”
