    Penny, Byrne and Hawkshaw are all guys I'd more or less guarantee will start European knockout games for Ster in the next 5 years, huge losses.

    Still a stronger squad than the last two years but a big ask to beat England again as well as Australia (Id imagine but have no idea) and Italy who are no slouches.

    Pfft, I was very hopeful but without Penny and Byrne there isn't much hope. We'll do well but without those two we're massively weakened.

    No Luke James is silly, he's significantly better than Redpath

    Guess they just really want to convince Cam to declare for England

    At least 7 of that squad have family members who are playing, or have played, at a decent level.

    I think his dad is Scottish and he definitely played for them in the younger age grades. Not sure where he was born, but AFAIK, he’s spent most, of not all of his life in England.
