Many of us have been concerned about the number of players lacking rest in the Scotland team for the summer and this puts it into perspective with ‘Top of the moon’s ever brilliant statistics.
As it seems, the players many are concerned about are still within the recommended amount of game time within a season, which justifies their selection. However, with young talents to try out, The Lions tour coming up next year, many still want to see the stars rested. Conversely, with the World Cup pools being selected in May 2017, Vern Cotter will be looking at getting Scotland into the best possible position and therefore every game counts. There is also an argument that after so much progress over Vern’s tenure, he won’t want to kill momentum as the team begins to seriously threaten in the Six Nations once again.
