Talisman Bright Targets New Year Improvement

20th December 2014

Mark Bright has demanded the London Scottish squad come back in 2015 refreshed and raring to go after their defeat to Worcester Warriors earlier today.

The captain scored two tries to take his personal tally for the season to 14, and despite cutting the score to 17-22 with 10 minutes to go it was the visitors who came out on top to consolidate their place in the Greene King IPA Championship top-two.

The 36-year-old said: “We made too many mistakes and gave away far too many penalties.

“Against a good side like Worcester they are going to capitalise on them all day and that’s exactly what happened.

“But it has been a solid start to the season and as long as we have a good break and all come back refreshed, we will push on in 2015 and be successful.

“We are in the top-four before Christmas which is where we wanted to be, however it’s a job half done at the moment.”

Reflecting on 2014 Bright believes that the Club have taken huge strides forward.

He continued: “If you had said at the start of the year that we would have been third behind Bristol and Worcester we would have been happy.

“We’ve had some great wins and now it’s about getting even better, starting at Nottingham in January.

“It’s a very hard place to go as we found out last year. It was a massive stumbling block so we will be looking to right a few wrongs there.”

London Scottish’s Player of the Year was on international duty last weekend in South Africa with the England Sevens squad and Bright said he was hugely proud to represent his country having also competed for England at this year's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

”It was a good experience and nice to see some sun,” he said.

“Playing for your country is great but I was back on Tuesday training with the boys here and was pleased to be back in the blue Scottish jersey today.”
