Townsend: ” Scotland Need To Be Better Than Autumn Tests ”

Written by on January 25, 2018

Head coach Gregor Townsend believes Scotland will need to play better than they did in the autumn to have a chance of winning the Six Nations title.

Scotland took New Zealand to the wire before thrashing Australia by a record margin in their final November Test.

“We are well aware this tournament is going to be very difficult. It is the best rugby tournament in the world on a yearly basis,” Townsend said.

“We will have to play even better than in November if we are going to win.”

Townsend highlighted the challenge of facing a “hugely experienced” Wales side in their opening game on 3 February in Cardiff, where Scotland have not won in eight attempts since 2002.

England will visit Murrayfield this year in an eagerly anticipated match.
