Sean Lamont takes care of the Fijian wingers

Sean Lamont takes care of the Fijian wingers

The Lamont brothers returned to international rugby on the weekend as they were recalled by new Scotland coach Andy Robinson for the match against Fiji at Murrayfield. Right wing Sean managed to make his impact felt with two great hits.

Both brothers have been out of the limelight in recent times as they battled back from bad form and injury problems. The Evans brothers, Thom and Max, then emerged as the Scottish brothers on the block, which overshadowed the Lamonts to an extent. Because of that, this recent call up came as a nice surprise to Sean.

“To get the call with the amount of talent that Scotland has in the back three, I’m very surprised, but very happy,” he said.

Younger brother Rory disagreed though. “I wasn’t surprised,” said the full-back. “I was hopeful that we’d both get picked. Having seen Sean play, I knew he was back to his best rugby and I knew he had a good chance.”

Scotland expected a bit of a physical stuff against Fiji, which is perhaps one of the reasons why Robinson went ahead with the selection of the powerful, well built outside backs.

“I expect hard hits, occasional high hits and the odd swinging arm, as you do against the islanders,” said Rory. “Genetically, they’re just a little bit different to British players. They’re strong and quick. But I feel ready for it.”

Ironically it wasnt actually the Fijians who put in the biggest hits of the match, but Rorys brother Sean, who as you can see here nailed both of the South Sea Islander’s massive wings with two awesome tackles.
