One problem the Scottish players seem to face is that there is no middle ground for them between the EIHL and the SNL. In the past years a few guys have made the GB junior teams then amounted to nothing because they either sit on the bench in the EIHL or play in the low standard SNL and don't really get anywhere. Whereas in England the EPIHL provides a good middle ground and even the NIHL divison 1 is better than the SNL. With Solway in the NIHL now things could improve.
England always beat them easily in the U19 game for the simple reason there is a larger pool of players. They should combine Wales and Scotland to make it more competitive.
