Finn Russell says World Cup in Japan should show ‘real Scotland’ 

Fly-half??Finn Russell??Considers the World Cup Ought to show the”Actual Scotland” Following a disappointing Six Nations campaign.

Scotland recorded 1 victory using several injuries to older players demonstrating key.
The squad of gregor Townsend choose Ireland in their first match of Pool A – which comprises hosts, Samoa and Russia Japan – and also Russell thinks they could get through to the knock-out phase.
“It should be the actual Scotland we see today,” Russell explained.
“Here is the main stage, the World Cup, so if it’s not the actual Scotland we view then it will be disappointing for each of us.
“On our day, should we get things straight we’re definitely capable of getting out of this group. From there it is knock-out rugby and you also just take it game by game.
“We are here to do our job and also provide our very best performance. If we remain injury-free I believe we are in a excellent place to do this”
Russell was defeated with the consistency in the tournament of all the side, although scotland completed their Six Nations campaign with a historical 38-38 draw against England at Twickenham.
“The Six Nations turned down and up – it all seemed to be matches of 2 halves,” that the 26-year-old added.
“Against Italy the first half was amazing, then we let within three late tries. We had a good first period against Ireland also but slipped off. The England match was like that but in reverse.
“What was bothersome was that we never actually managed to devote an 80-minute performance. In a World Cup from the best teams in the world you need to devote an 80-minute display every game.”
Scotland will be without back-rower Jamie Ritchie as he steps up his recovery from a broken cheekbone while the Sam Skinner of Exeter has been the only player to be ruled out prior to the tournament.
