Ex-Maori All Blacks forward considering Scotland switch

New Zealand-born forward Blade Thomson is open to a future with Scotland but is concentrating on settling in at new club Scarlets.

The 27-year-old qualifies for Gregor Townsend’s squad through his Scottish grandparents.

“I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t thought about it,” he told Scrum V when asked about his Scottish connection.

“But, to be honest, this [Scarlets] is my job first and foremost.

“If it happens, it happens. We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it, I suppose.”
