Although Scotland rugby team has been currently ranked 12th in the world after they lost to Tonga, and just a month ago Andy Robinson resigned as head coach last month, their back player 31-year-old Sean Lamont has high hopes of winning against England at Twickenham in the Calcutta Cup dated Feb 2 on the opening weekend of the Six Nations.
The claim is certainly close to day-dreaming because England is now in its topmost form after their record win against New Zealand. Last February, England had Lancaster as their stand-by coach and the team won gracefully at Murrayfield and also won four matches in the Six Nations and walked away with the runners-up title.
The Scotland Rugby Union are not hasting up the announcement of the appointment of Scott Johnson as their provisional head coach because they are taking time to find the right replacement for Robinson. But according to the 71 cap holder Lamont, Johnson can be just fine. After their loss against Tonga, Andy Robinson had to resign as he concurred that the performance was a ‘coach-killing’ one.
Lamont said, “We crossed the line three times and didn’t get a score, which is criminal. That should have been at least 15 points.” Visser has shown particular disappointment because it was Robinson who first handed him his first cap in June after he had qualified through residency. He feels that the former coach had been made a scapegoat. All the players deply regretted his decision to quite as a coach.
But now it is time for the Scotland Rugby team to look forward to the upcoming matches. The opinions of the two players Viser and Lamont were taken during the official announcement of Caledonia Best as the official beer of Scottish rugby.
