Rory Kerr has spoken about his disappointment at missing out on a place in Scotland's World Cup squad.
Rory Kerr has spoken about his omission from the Scotland squad going to the World Cup in Australia.

Today's Herald reports that Rory was too upset to talk about his non-selection on Tuesday after receiving the unwanted call from Ian McGeechan, the national coach, on Monday evening.

"I don't really remember much of what he said after he told me I wasn't going. It was a bit of a shock. I thought I had done enough to make the squad and I'm very disappointed because I gave it my all."

Rory goes on to explain that he feared for his professional career after being frozen out of the Glasgow set-up by the former coaching regime. "I never thought last April that I would be in this situation because I didn't think I had any chance of getting into the national squad. I still regard myself as very, very lucky to have played for Scotland recently.

"I'm still young and, if I'm called up again, I'll be really excited. However, I love playing for Glasgow and Hugh Campbell and Sean Lineen have got us back playing the old Glasgow rugby.

"It makes a huge difference if the coaches are looking to play that sort of game and last Friday it was fantastic to beat Cardiff playing that way so I just want to have fun, enjoy our style of rugby and look to keep improving."
