I’m re­ally dis­ap­pointed by the way the Scot­tish Rugby Union have treated Lon­don Scot­tish (end­ing their de­vel­op­ment part­ner­ship). The Scot­land team needs a big­ger pool to pick from and the Cham­pi­onship is a high stan­dard.

If there is a change to the ‘project player’ rule, as there should be, the Scots team will re­ally strug­gle.

Fur­ther­more, the SRU should not be reneg­ing on prom­ises – that puts a dark cloud over the union. RW says: It was wrong but to their credit the SRU have since re­in­stated the re­la­tion­ship, al­beit on a more mod­est foot­ing. when I first started play­ing in the Six­ties they were locks and num­bers four and five were sec­ond-rows.
