“Cheers Netflix, you’ve done me over” – Finn Russell not happy with documentary

Scotland skipper Finn Russell has been discussing his “jokey comment” comparing himself to Lionel Messi in Netflix’s new Six Nations documentary.

Rory Darge and Russell have been named co-captains for Scotland ahead of the 2024 Guinness Six Nations.

Both players have captained Scotland already this season with Darge leading Scotland to victory over Italy in the summer and the following week Finn Russell took on the mantle in a memorable comeback victory over France at Scottish Gas Murrayfield.

During an interview with BBC Sport he said: “I think it was just a joke comment, I didn’t think it would go viral,

“He’s won a lot more trophies than man. It was a throwaway comment. I just meant the fly-half position in rugby was similar to what he played in football”

He finished by saying: “Cheers Netflix, you’ve done me over” – Finn Russell isn’t happy with documentary
