Finn Russell and Scotland in the run-up to the Six Nations: "We are confident going into the tournament"

The Scotland Flyer Finn Russell, this convinced that his team arrives with confidence at the Six Nations when they face England on the first date. Last year the Scots snapped a 38-year winless streak at Twickenham, beating La Rosa 11-6 in a memorable encounter and for the back this year the team will raise the bar in the tournament.

The 29-year-old made it clear that the team led by Eddie Jones is not the only Six Nations team to beat, as this year’s edition will be very close. “We know what a good team they are. They had a great November window, as did Wales, France and IrelandRussell told the podcast. Scrum V Rugby.

All games are tough we have to treat them all the same. obviously it is England versus Scotland, which is a different match” said the opening and added that “we are confident for the tournament and we know what we have to do to try to perform at our best. That’s what we’re going to focus on and try to take the rivalry out of the equation.”.

Despite missing out on the 2020 edition of the Six Nations due to a dispute with manager Gregor Townsend, Russell will certainly be a key player as the Scots look to improve on their fourth-place finish in 2021.

I love the anticipation around the Six Nations and the excitement that comes with it is brilliant.” he said about the tournament and analyzed that “They are high-level matches, high-intensity matches, which is great. I love the Six Nations. We are lucky to have it every year”.

The World Cup is an amazing tournament, but having the Six Nations every year is great. Teams may or may not be at their best, so every year it can be anyone who wins it. Last year we lost two games by a couple of points in each of them and that’s the thin margin between winning it and finishing third or fourth.”.
