What about the other nations taking part?

Come on, give us a break; I may be mistaken but I was under the impression there were other Home-Nations in the World Championship event.

You would hardly think so, judging by the one-sided commentaries - not just on this site but in all sections of the angling media.

Don't ignore the fact that while Scotland, Ireland and Wales may be classed as minnows by you commentators, they are putting in just as much effort as Team England and given decent draws are capable of inflicting some serious damage this weekend.
