Home Internationals this weekend

[<<] [>>] by Chris Williams
15th June 2005 (International)

The 26th Home Internationals will be played this coming weekend at Southport. England and Ireland should be battling it out for first place, whilst Scotland are looking like comfortable wooden spoon winners, with their weakest team for many years.

The English team is not their strongest, but still looks very powerful. The Irish team is not quite their strongest, but is not far off it.

During the event Simon Williams will become the most 'capped' player in the history of the Home Internationals. Simon's third match this year will be his 56th in the event overtaking William Prichard of Wales who is on 55.

All players with at least 10 matches in the event are listed at
