Bradbury broth­ers star for Scot­land

The Oban Times - - Sport -

OBAN’S Bradbury broth­ers - Mag­nus and Fer­gus - have been in ac­tion for their re­spec­tive Scot­land rugby teams.

Mag­nus, who plays his club rugby for Ed­in­burgh in the Guin­ness Pro12 league, played in the Scots team that thumped Italy in Sin­ga­pore on Satur­day. Mag­nus was on the bench but came on in the back row dur­ing the 34-14 de­feat of the Ital­ians.

The Scot­land squad is now con­tin­u­ing its tour, which sees them in Aus­tralia pre­par­ing to take on the mighty Wal­la­bies this Satur­day at the Al­lianz Sta­dium in Syd­ney.

Younger brother Fer­gus, who plays for Stir­ling County in the BT Pre­mier­ship, is in Ge­or­gia with the Scots team play­ing in the World Rugby Un­der-20 Cham­pi­onship.

The Scots have been do­ing well, de­spite los­ing their open­ing fix­ture against New Zealand on May 31. Fer­gus started that game but was on the bench for the sec­ond clash, in which Scot­land beat Ire­land 32-28 on June 4.

He was on the bench again last Thurs­day, June 8, as Scot­land won 17-16 against Italy to qual­ify for the knock­out stages in sec­ond place in Pool B.

Scot­land were play­ing Wales on Tues­day evening in their first knock­out game.
