Scotland: Russell says ‘things are much better’ with Townsend – Fil Info


“It’s going much better”. Excluded even before the start of the Six Nations Tournament 2020, Finn Russell told AFP to be “eager” to find the Scottish XV and his coach Gregor Townsend. In January, the opening half was sent home “for indiscipline”. Since then, relations, a time conflicting, between the fantastic Russell and the rigorous Towsend have calmed down. “I spoke to him barely half an hour ago (Monday afternoon, Editor’s note). Everything is much better between us. Can’t wait to go back, to try to do my best and make things better. Things are going much better between us, ”assured the Racing 92 player to AFP. “We talk to each other regularly. During the confinement, we spoke to each other a few times and, for the past few weeks, it has been more regular, depending on our schedules. During the confinement, we spoke to each other once a month, even We talked about the fall matches and the different possibilities because I’m in France and that might complicate things. Things are going a lot better than before. That’s a good thing. I really hope that , in a while, I’ll be back in training with Scotland, “he added. Scotland will face Fabien Galthié’s Blues this fall, on November 22 at Murrayfield.
