RUGBY UNION: Scott wants more of the same against Pirates
11:00am Saturday 26th October 2013 in Sport
Nick Scott is relishing the chance to show Cornish Pirates what he is capable of – again.
Arriving on loan at London Welsh from Bath just prior to the club’s 2012 Championship play-off run, Scott finished the season with seven tries in 12 league appearances.
These including a crucial score in the semi-final win over Bedford, as well as one of Welsh’s four tries in their first leg final win over the Pirates at Mennaye Field.
“We put in an outrageous performance down at the Mennaye and that sent us up,” he said.
“The second leg at the Kassam was class. It was a great time to be involved with the club and they’re memories I will always have.
“I’ve had some incredible highs, culminating in winning the Championship and then went through another rollercoaster with the boys in the Premiership – massive highs and big lows.”
He added: “The club has changed a lot. That season in the Premiership has really kicked the club on.
“We got relegated, but the standards have been set. As Justin said when he first came in, he sees this as a Premiership club. We want to get back where we think we belong.”
Last Saturday’s try in the British & Irish Cup loss at Pontypridd was Scott’s 16th in a London Welsh jersey, but his last-gasp intercept try to defeat Bath in the Premiership at the Kassam will take some beating.
“That was my highlight, I loved that game. It wasn’t just because it was my old club Bath. To get wins in the Premiership is such hard work,” said Scott.
“You start on Monday and with all the effort put in at the weekend to get the result from the last play of the game was something special.
“The best thing about it wasn’t actually the try, it was the celebrations afterwards.” Try No 17 and a fifth consecutive league win would be a nice way to mark Scott’s 50th appearance.
