Brooks proud after Scotland debut

Whitehaven forward Sam Brooks is very proud, after making his international debut for Scotland against France last weekend.

Although Scotland lost the game 32-18, the 22-year-old was very pleased to have played at international level.

“There were mixed emotions after the game,” Brooks told the Whitehaven News & Star.

“We were disappointed with our first half performance and we spoke about that at half-time.

“We said with it being the last half of the tournament we needed to go out there and save face and I think we did that.

“We started slowly and were caught a bit short, and they had quite a few players from Catalans Dragons in their squad but we dug in and we’ll get a lot of experience from that game.

“The effort was there and the average age of our squad is only 22. To play in the Four Nations next year would be a dream come true.

England, Australia and New Zealand are the best teams in the world and you want to be playing them.”
