Rugby League European Cup

By Richard Cowley, Date: 26/10/12

Scotland go into the 3rd and final match of the Alitalia European Cup at Meggetland Stadium this Sunday afternoon against the tournament favorites the England Knights.

Scotland were defeated by Ireland 18 – 30 in Game 1 of the European Cup. The England Knights will be much harder team to tackle than the Irish squad. Scotland could be on the wrong end of a big scoreline if they run out of puff against the Knights.

Scotland have named their squad for the match with the England Knights team unchanged from last week.
