Scott Johnson, the head coach of the Scotland Rugby team has admitted that his team is far from being the finished article, but he is confident that progression is going according to plan and his side is capable enough of causing one or two upsets as the team prepares for the RBS Six Nations Championship.
Scotland have had to endure some of the worst performances in their recent history in the Six Nations Championship but there have been signs of improvement as the team showed enough grit and determination to push the Australians all the way in a narrow defeat in the autumn internationals.
Ryan Grant, Stuart Hogg, Richie Gray as well as Sean Maitland, all those who starred for the British and Irish Lions team during their summer tour of Australia last year have been named in the Scotland Rugby squad for the upcoming RBS Six Nations Championship and Johnson has also continued his policy of promoting exciting young talents in the form of Chris Fusaro and Dougie Fife as well.
According to the Aussie coach of the Scotland team, score board pressure as well as consistency will hold the key to his side’s performances but he has blatantly admitted that the team is still a long way from where he initially wanted to be at this stage ahead of the Rugby World Cup in England in 2015.
But he has insisted that although the progression has been slow, it has been steady and that is what that matters.
The Scotland Rugby team boss stated that consistency is the key to any good side and he thinks if his team can get some consistency going, then they are good enough to beat any side on any given day, adding that they are willing to take more risks as well.
