Russell makes debut in six nations against France

Finn Russell is getting ready to make his first six nations appearance against France this weekend. The 22 year old Glasgow warrior will make his fourth appearance for Scotland this weekend when he plays rugby at the Stade de France.

He said “it would have been great to start my six nation’s career at home but France will be amazing […] I’ve played a few games for Glasgow this season and got a wee taste but nothing this big,”

Scotland are looking to win the six nations this year as they have never won it before and are looking good in the lead up to the start of the tournament. The last time Scotland won at France was 1999 in the last five nations when Scotland won the trophy.

Finn Russell has played two games in France this season both for Glasgow warriors. He knows that they have to apply pressure early on against them but be careful not to overdo it as that happened to him when he was playing against Toulouse and he got yellow carded for a dangerous tackle. “One little thing like that can cost you a game” he added.

Russell is hopeful that they can beat France this year and win their first six nations.
