David Scott, who has recently joined the VLUK team at Hull FC as a HND lecturer, has been selected to play for Scotland in the Rugby League World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. In his current role he is delivering 4 degree level units throughout the week to his students giving them a good foundation which will enable them to continue onto university to gain an honours degree.
Scott made his Scotland debut in 2011 when he was 18 and has played continuously since then. Scott plays rugby league for the Batley Bulldogs and after proving himself in the past year at club level, picking up Player of the Year, he was selected to play for Scotland in the World Cup.
The Scotland team have recently flown out to Cairns where they will spend their first 2 weeks playing a New South Wales representative side in a warm up and then their first group game against Tonga. Following this they will fly on to New Zealand for a week to play the Kiwis in Christchurch. Then it’s back to Cairns for their final group game against Samoa. If Scotland are successful in reaching the knockout stages they will stay on a week longer.
