Finn Russell reveals secret behind Scots’ second-half revival
Scotland fly-half Finn Russell has revealed a half-time “argument” with head coach Gregor Townsend helped spark Scotland’s remarkable comeback in their 38-38 Calcutta Cup draw with England.
“I actually had an argument with Gregor [at half-time],” Russell told ITV.
“I said to him ‘you’re telling us to kick and when we kick, they just run it back and cut us open, and when we run it, they’re just hitting us behind the gain line and winning the ball back’.
“Second half, we just came out with nothing to lose, played our rugby, kicked out of our half and scored some great tries. We played good Scottish rugby.”
