Ally Miller puts Exile Derby behind him to focus on Rotherham test

11th September 2016

Flanker Ally Miller admitted that the Scots were hugely frustrated with yesterday’s defeat to London Welsh, but says they will bounce back against Rotherham next weekend.

Scottish started the match positively and had a 9-0 advantage after 24 minutes, but the visitors responded with five tries to secure a 36-9 win at the Athletic Ground. 

Miller, who was named man-of-the-match on his home debut, says the Scots must turn good starts in to 80 minute performances.

“I felt we put London Welsh under good pressure at the start of the match and were forcing them to make mistakes, but as a team we need to be more disciplined and not let teams get easy chances to put us under pressure.”

Scottish now face a trip to Yorkshire next weekend to face Rotherham Titans on Saturday as they search for their first victory of the new Greene King IPA Championship season.

The 20-year-old, who arrived in the summer as part of the Performance Partnership with the Scottish Rugby Union is sure that the Scots will respond at Clifton Lane.

“Going forward to the Rotherham match we need to control the ball more and play our style of running rugby. It will be a good show of character to head away to Rotherham and put down a good performance.”
