Brough could make Scotland return after England snub

Danny Brough could play for Scotland at the World Cup after being snubbed by England boss Steve McNamara.

McNamara left the Huddersfield half-back out of his Elite Training Squad last week, meaning Brough’s England career could be over after just one game.

The 30-year-old, who played in the second test against the Exiles last season, has been instrumental in the Giants’ excellent start to Super League in 2013.

He could now be brought back in to the Scotland fold by Steve McCormack, having played for them at the last World Cup.

Brough said: “I didn’t get in the squad and that’s up to Steve.

“He picks his team. I’ll just keep playing for the Giants and, I’ll be honest, I’m not overly fussy.

“He picks four (half-backs) in front of me every year. I don’t want to just get in the squad, end up training and not play. That’s not my cup of tea at all.

“If he’s going to pick me I’ll play. If he doesn’t… nevermind, I’ll play elsewhere.

“If an opportunity comes I’ll play for Scotland. If Scotland want to pick me I’ll gladly speak to Scotland about it.”

Brough has scored 63 points in 10 appearances for Scotland, with his last appearance coming in the 26-12 defeat to France in October 2010.
