EUROPEAN NATIONS CUP 2004

To encourage development in countries such as Scotland, Ireland and Wales each 20-man squad must also include four members who have played in each nationís domestic competition.


Last year Scotland missed out on a trip to the final on two points of goal difference after thrilling games against Ireland in Glasgow and France in Narbonne. This year we hope to go improve against this group opponents Wales and Ireland.

Our home fixture against the Welsh will again be played at the magnificent Old Anniesland home of the Glasgow Hawks - tickets can be prepaid or bought on the gate - our international adventures kick off at 3pm on Sunday the 24th of October.

The Scotland Rugby League shop will be in operation at the ground in the main stand. You are welcome to use the bar facilities courtesy of our hosts!
