North Queensland Cowboys full-back Lachlan Coote is among the major names in Steve McCormack's Scotland squad for the 2016 Four Nations.

Coote is joined by team-mate Kane Linnett, plus Wigan's Lewis Tierney and Warrington's Matty Russell, who played in the Super League Grand Final.

St George Illawarra wing Euan Aitken is in, as is Huddersfield's Ryan Brierley, who can play full-back or halves.

Brierley's club team-mate Danny Brough is captain of the side.

St Helens prop Luke Douglas is also in the squad, having moved from Gold Coast Titans for 2017.

The acquisition of Coote for Scotland is a boost for McCormack, having previously called up the 2015 NRL premiership winner in 2013.

He was linked with a New South Wales State of Origin call by coach Laurie Daley who praised his form for the Cowboys.
