RUGBY LEAGUE: Upbeat Farrell.

Great Britain captain Andy Farrell insists his side can overcome the likely loss of his right-hand man Paul Sculthorpe for the first Test against New Zealand.

Sculthorpe, Super League Man of Steel for the last two seasons, is almost certain to miss the first of three matches in the series at Blackburn after failing to recover from a damaged thigh muscle.

The St Helens loose forward or stand-off suffered a rupture in training before his club's Super League final eliminator against Wigan a month ago.
