Just a quick one. Apart from Crocker and Calderwood, are there any Hull players representing countries in the forthcoming world cup.?

I know several have withdrawn through injury but have lost track of all teams.

Ex player, Scottie Logan is trundling out for the Jocks again, I think he played for them in the last world cup.

WHAT A JOKE COMPETITION

Is it just me or anyone else think this is more like a kick about in the school yard.
All these top teams picking the best players and the others picking up the scraps.

It was the same with the seeding of the groups,what other "WORLD CUP" would have the top three teams in the same group.

No wonder the sports a joke in the eyes of people who don't follow it.
Grrrrrrrrrrrr.

The game doesnt have enough strong international teams to make the world cup in league work.

I think the tri-nations works better.

I know it will never happen but for a decent world cup I'd have Aus, NZ, England, France, PNG, a home nation teams, A pacific Islands team and lastly a place for one of the stronger up and coming nations. Would make no difference to the eventual top 3 but you may not see some of the beatings that are no doubt going to occur.
