Reaction: Fergusson praises squad effort in hard-fought victory

23rd October 2016

Robbie Fergusson, who captained Scottish in the thrilling 34-29 victory over Ulster ‘A’ was quick to recognise the entire squad for what was a hugely physical battle.

The Scots came from behind to secure a late win and make it two wins from two in the British and Irish Cup, but after a number of injuries during the match they were forced to play with prop Dan Koroi in the back-row and flanker Joe Atkinson on the wing in the final moments as they looked to close out the match. 

“The boys showed real heart at the end with bodies on the deck but that's what it's all about and we came through a real dog fight.” Said the centre.

He added: “Fair play to Ulster they made it a real battle. As a team it needed to be one of our best performances to get the win and we can keep the momentum building in to what will be a massive test against London Irish next weekend.”
