Rugby World Cup 2023: Gregor Townsend glaubt, dass Scotland sein Potenzial mit der bekannten Niederlage gegen Irland erreichen kann

Laut Gregor Townsend sind die Schocken bereit, „ein weiteres Rekord zu brechen“, während sie versuchen, die Nummer eins der Welt Irland zu beeindrucken und in die Quarter-Finals des Weltcups zu gelangen.

In order to advance to the last eight, the Scots will probably require a win by eight points or more in Paris on Saturday.


Townsend wurde gefragt, ob er der Meinung war, dass es jetzt a der Zeit war, dass sein talentiertes Team endlich ihr volles Potenzial entfalten konnte.


Also, warum nicht? He explained, “The players have performed in massive games before where we were underdogs.”


We have previously broken records, regardless of whether it was a win in Paris, a win in Twickenham, or a win over England in seven or so years.


We believe in them and this is a chance for them to break another record. We believe that where they are physically and mentally in good shape, they are prepared to play their best rugby.”


Was Schottland und Irland benötigen, um zu qualifizieren

Rugby ist nicht anspruchsvoller oder aufregender.

All the news, opinions, and updates about Scotland in France.

Ali Price was selected ahead of Ben White in the scrum half as one of 12 changes made by Scotland for the final Pool B match against the Irish.


After Townsend gave fringe players a chance to impress during last week’s 84-0 thrashing of Romania, Price is one of only three players to retain their positions.


Grant Gilchrist, der als Kapitän des Tages fungierte, und der Stürmer Darcy Graham, der vier Versuche erzielte, werden erneut am Stade de France in Paris antreten.


Blair Kinghorn, der Rückkehrer, erzielt erneut seinen 50. Cap, während White nicht den 23. erreicht, wobei Price’s fellow Glasgow Warriors scrum-half George Horne auf der Bank steht.


As Townsend selects six forwards, including front-row reinforcements Ewan Ashman, Rory Sutherland and WP Nel, Ollie Smith is the only other backline player among the replacements.


In the first half of the Tonga match a fortnight ago, Captain Jamie Ritchie returns to lead the team after going off with concussion.


The only change to the team that started the match against South Africa on the opening weekend of the tournament is Price in place of White.


The 30-year-old owned the number nine jersey for three years until he lost it to White at the beginning of this year’s Six Nations.


In Nice früher diese Woche erklärte Price, dass seine verbesserte Maturität ihm half, die Verlust seiner Position zu überwinden, nur zwei Jahre nach seiner Nominierung für die British and Irish Lions.


Nevertheless, he appears to have convinced Townsend that he is worthy of being put back into the thick of it for one of Scotland’s biggest games in years as they try to get a bonus-point win over the Irish or deny their opponents a losing bonus in order to get to the quarter-finals.


Despite impressing against Romania, Flanker Hamish Watson, another Lion who has fallen from prominence this year, has not made the 23.


In Schottland spielen Blair Kinghorn (Edinburgh), Darcy Graham (Edinburgh), Huw Jones (Glasgow Warriors), Sione Tuipulotu (Glasgow Warriors), Duhan van der Merwe (Edinburgh), Finn Russell (Bath) und Ali Price (Glasgow Warriors). Pierre Schoeman (Edinburgh), George Turner (Edinburgh), Zander Fagerson (Edinburgh), Richie Gray (Edinburgh), Grant Gilchrist (Edinburgh), Jamie Ritchie (Edinburgh), Rory Darge (Edinburgh), Jack Dempsey (Glasgow Warriors).


Ewan Ashman aus Edinburgh, Rory Sutherland (nicht verbunden), WP Nel aus Edinburgh, Scott Cummings aus Glasgow Warriors, Matt Fagerson aus Glasgow Warriors, Luke Crosbie aus Edinburgh, George Horne aus Glasgow Warriors und Ollie Smith aus Glasgow Warriors wurden ersetzt.
