LEEDS, England, Nov 15 PA - Scotland captain Danny Brough wants his side to build on their Rugby League World Cup success by pushing for a place in the 2016 Four Nations Series.

The Bravehearts' fairytale run came to a predictable halt when they crashed to a 40-4 defeat by New Zealand in the first quarter-final at Headingley but they bowed out with their pride and dignity intact.

Brough's men created several chances and, despite trailing 36-0, they drew the biggest cheer from the 16,207 crowd when left winger Alex Hurst scored their solitary try on 64 minutes.

Scotland now face an uncertain future until the next World Cup in 2017, especially after revealing that their funding was cut on the eve of Friday's match, but both Brough and coach Steve McCormack remain committed to the cause.

Brough, whose class stood out in a well-beaten side, is hoping they can retain the services of their trio of NRL players and be given the chance ahead of France to play in the next series involving the Kiwis and Kangaroos to be held in the northern hemisphere.

"We've got to try and push on and get in the Four Nations," the Hudersfield captain said.

"Hopefully we can get Peter Wallace, Kane Linnett and Luke Douglas back over because they've been outstanding for us.

"If we have a decent team next year and a good crack, you never know."
