It has been an up-and-down start to the Greene King IPA Championship season for London Scottish, but scrum-half Russell Weir is loving every minute, writes Paddy Von Behr.

Peter Richards’ side followed an opening-day defeat at home to Moseley with four wins on the bounce, including a 30-27 triumph away to league leaders Yorkshire Carnegie.

That run came to an end on Sunday, when they left Cornish Pirates with a solitary losing bonus point.

But Weir – who switched to Scottish in the summers after three years on the international sevens circuit – insists the omens are good at Scottish.

“I loved my time with the sevens, travelling around and seeing some pretty cool places, but it’s great to get back into XVs,” he said.

“If nothing else, it’s about getting back into the club atmosphere, playing every weekend and a training week with the focal point of playing at the weekend.”

He added: “This really is a league where anyone can beat anyone and no team probably shows that more than ourselves.

“We gave ourselves quite a lot to do against Pirates – at one point we were about 15 points astray.

“It was just a case of little things going wrong and making some errors that are quite uncharacteristic.”

Scottish host Nottingham tonight knowing they scored 30 points in a win over London Welsh last time out.

Weir said: “We have done quite a bit of analysis on Nottingham and in four out of six games they have played, they have scored 30-plus points.

“They have been on the wrong end of some really tight games. There is absolutely no taking them lightly and, coming off the back of losing to Pirates, we are looking for a bit of a reaction.”
