Scotland is punching above its weight on the international stage despite struggling in the amateur ranks. John Davidson reports.
One of the surprise packets of the 2013 World Cup, along with the USA, was the performance of Scotland. The Bravehearts beat both Tonga and the Tomahawks and went through the group stage undefeated after a 30-30 draw with Italy. Reaching a quarter-final was unexpected and although Scotland was well beaten by New Zealand 40-4, they were not embarrassed by one of international footy’s heavyweights.
