Weir: Tough Game But Not Much Between Sides

Duncan Weir made his first start for Scotland in today's 28-18 defeat to Wales and after the game he admitted it was tough but didn't feel there was much between the two sides.

Speaking exclusively to he said: "It was tough going but I don't think we executed getting out our own half as well as we could have and we put ourselves under a bit of pressure.

"Despite the result it was an amazing experience which I'll never forget and hopefully I'll be able to start a few more games."

Weir played for 78 minutes of the game, before being replaced by his Warriors teammate Ruaridh Jackson.

"It was a bit nip and tuck between the teams. We didn't really get going from our own set pieces and we couldn't really string that many phases together. I thought we did have a good few moments and we gained the territory battle at times but we probably didn't execute our moves as clinically as we would have liked."

Next week Scotland travel to Paris to play a French team still looking for their first win of the tournament.

Weir added: "France will be very tough on front of a home crowd in Paris and their coach will be applying pressure that they need a result, so if we can go over and spoil their party and come away with with three wins from the tournament we'll be delighted."
