Mariano part of Scotland plans

Scotland Rugby League have confirmed the identities of some more of the players who are likely to feature in their Four Nations campaign this year.

The team will also play a warm-up game for the tournament against Cumbria at Barrow on Friday, October 21.

Wigan winger Lewis Tierney, St George-Illawarra centre Euan Aitken and Frankie Mariano, set to depart from Castleford at the end of the season, are also set to feature.

Leeds prop Keith Galloway looks like he will miss out, though, having sustained an achilles injury at the weekend.

The Scotland team will begin its preparations for the tournment with five days training at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh ahead of the Cumbrian game.

They will then head to the University of Central Lancashire’s Tom Finney Arena in Preston to prepare for the game against Australia at Hull KR on Friday, October 28.

The team’s shirts will also feature Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, which treats children from all over the North of England and Scotland.

“We’re delighted to have been given this fantastic opportunity to have our charity logo on the Scottish Rugby League team’s kit – it really is an amazing honour!” said Angela Rowe, community fundraising manager for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity.

“Steve [McCormack, Scotland coach] kindly came to visit our Children’s Hospital and brought along the Four Nations Trophy for our patients to see, much to their delight.

“We wish the team the best of luck for the Four Nations tournament and will definitely be cheering them along!”
