The 29-year-old has signed a one-year deal after being granted a release from his contract with Hull, having spent just one season at the KC Stadium. Holdsworth left the Bulldogs in 2009 to signwith Salford City Reds, but he struggledwith injury and form last year. Scotland do it for Fisher SCOTLAND dedicated their latest Rugby League World Cup victory to veteran hooker Ben Fisher after his career was brought to a shattering halt before kick-off in their pool match against the USA. Fisher, who had planned to retire at the end of the tournament, tore a calf muscle in thewarm-up at Salford and, after being helped from the field in tears, watched on crutches from the sidelines as the Bravehearts came from8-0 down towin 22-8. In a surprise selection, Wallabies lock Rob Simmons has shifted to blindside flanker Italians plan big upset RUGBYUNION Wehave to try and attack themwith every scrum AUSTRALIA have not lost to Italy in 15 rugby internationals and not suffered nine Test defeats in the one calendar year. But the wounded Wallabies are under immense pressure to avoid disaster as they confront an improved Italian outfit smelling blood in Turin. The confrontational Azzurri have the wonky Australian scrum in their sights and aim to drain what little confidence is left in the Wallabies by rocking the set-piece from the outset at Stadio Olimpico this weekend. Ewen McKenzies men have suffered a 3-8 win-loss record in 2013, and one more loss sets them up for the worst season since the game went professional in 1996. With Tests against Ireland, Scotland and Wales to come, the unenvied record held by Eddie Jones 2005 team of 5-8 (37.5 per cent) would be hard to avoid. But a loss to Italy, better known for their round-ball exploits, in the home town of Serie A giants Juventus, would put the code in a deep, dark and dire hole. It looms as a Test where the Wallabies, now viewed as a fading international force, either get themselves back on track at the end of an annus horribilis or the ARU goes into damage control. Italy are ranked No. 12 in the world but took the scalps of both France and Ireland, both in Rome, in this years Six Nations to be a definite threat. Australias continued troubles at scrum time, which have prompted McKenzie to fire off a complaint to the IRB referees panel, have the Azzurri forwards licking their lips. If there is one point where we can put pressure on Australia, then Im sure it is up front, loosehead prop Michele Rizzo said. We have to try and attack them with every scrum. To counter the scrum threat, McKenzie has made the surprise selection of lock Rob Simmons as blindside flanker and kept bulky pair Sitaleki Timani and James Horwill in the second row. Its a big day for us forwards, Simmons said. Petero rates England rivals FIJI captain Petero Civoniceva fully expects England will reach the Rugby LeagueWorld Cup final. Fiji will tackle England in their final group clash, in Hull this weekend, and Australias most capped forward knows exactly what to expect after watching some of the English talent star in the 2013 NRL season. I feel that they are definitely going to be featuring in the final, said Civoniceva, whomade 45 appearances for Australia. Sheens warns no time for slip-ups RUGBY LEAGUE KANGAROOS coach Tim Sheens says his players cant afford to slack off against Rugby League World Cup whipping boys Ireland, warning one bad game could be enough to lose a spot in his side. Australia are expected to run out big winners in their final group game in Limerick this weekend, with Ireland conceding 72 points in their opening two games more than any other nation. Nonetheless, Sheens is treating the hosts with respect and believes intense competition for places within his best 17 will ensure there is no complacency from the tournament favourites. Guys cant afford to play poorly in any Test match, let alone as the competition goes through and were looking for our best team, Sheens said. Australia will face Ireland for the first time and victory will seal top place in Group A and a quarter-final meeting with tournament surprise packets the US. After rotating his squad throughout the group stage, Sheens is expected to return to his first-choice team from next week and several positions are still up for grabs. Daly Cherry-Evans, who starts at five-eighth against Ireland, is battling Robbie Farah for a bench utility spot while Boyd Cordner and Nate Myles are in the running to take injured Luke Lewis spot.
