Jonny Gray says playing alongside brother Richie can prove an “emotional” experience
The Gray brothers are likely to make up the second row for Scotland against Argentina on Saturday
This comes two years after starting their first international together against the same opposition
Glasgow Warriors second-row Jonny Gray has revealed playing alongside brother Richie for Scotland can prove an “emotional” experience.
The Gray brothers are likely to make up the second row for Scotland against Argentina at Murrayfield on Saturday as the men in blue look to bounce back from their narrow defeat to Australia last weekend.
“During the national anthem when I’ve got my brother by my side it’s pretty emotional,” said the younger Gray.
“It’s hard to describe and it does make you feel lucky.”
He added: “To be involved in the Scotland set-up and have my brother by my side is something I never thought [would happen].
“I’m very lucky that I’ve always had Rich by my side growing up to see how he’s got to that level and how hard he’s had to work to get there.”
A regular for Glasgow and a full Scotland international before he was out of his teens, the 6ft 6in lock already has 26 caps to his name.
