Rugby Union: Scotland A to come out strong against USA

Scotland boss Frank Hadden has picked 10 full caps to face the USA team on Wednesday which sparked the critics of USA Rugby chief Nigel Melville.

Rugby Union: Scotland A to come out strong against USAMelville expressed concern that the Churchill Cup is not about top players but for development of young stars. Frank Hadden responded by saying that 26 players are resting for the World Cup, and the fact that he has a strong A team should not be held against him. He also added that the last year he was only minus 24 players.

Nigel Melville, a former England player and now boss of the USA Rugby, is pointing out a few full time internationals on the Scottish A team, and is accusing Hadden of stopping others with less experienced players having a shot at the Churchill Cup.

The Churchill Cup is for the A teams of England, Scotland and Ireland, and the New Zealand, USA and Canada lining-up their strongest teams. Last year Scotland A team reached the Churchill Cup final in Canada, but were beaten by New Zealand Maori. USA lost 3-51 to English Saxons in the opening match of the tournament last Friday.
