Josh miss­ing his daily dose of Glasgow ban­ter

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - Sports -

Scot­land star Josh Strauss has swapped Glasgow War­riors for Sale Sharks.

“To beat Aus­tralia on their own patch was a great feel­ing,” he states. “It’s a new man­age­ment team, and that was a good state­ment for us to make.

“In last sea­son’s Six Na­tions, we won three big games, but that de­feat against Eng­land wasn’t what we wanted or ex­pected.

“A lot of peo­ple have asked me about our mind­set for that game and how it went.

“The train­ing that week was ex­cel­lent, but it didn’t hap­pen on the day. Eng­land clicked and we didn’t, but that’s rugby. There were two op­po­sites and that’s why the mar­gin was so big.

“But we are get­ting closer. Our strength in depth is bet­ter and I’ve seen it grow im­mensely in the five years I’ve been here.

“There are now some great young play­ers com­ing through and that’s ex­actly what Scot­tish rugby needs.”
