Braveheart Aitken inspired by Scotland visit

St George Illawarra centre Euan Aitken is hoping to use his Four Nations experience in the 2017 NRL season.

Aitken enjoyed a fine Four Nations tournament with Scotland, culminating with the Bravehearts’ surprise draw against New Zealand in Workington.

“It was a great experience to be able to go up against the best in the world and especially for Scotland Rugby League, it was massive for them to get that draw against New Zealand in the last match,” he told his club’s official website.

“I think in every game we improved and it showed in that last game when we were working against New Zealand.

“It was a very cold night and there was an 8,000-strong crowd there filling the stands watching while we competed against the best in the world at the time and the boys really turned up with the right attitude which is why I suppose we came away with the draw.”

Aitken also enjoyed visiting Scotland and exploring some of his family’s heritage.

“It was good getting away to Scotland and we stayed in Edinburgh for several days which allowed all the players to learn about their tartan as well as family crest,” he added.

“It was definitely good to have that opportunity and be able to learn about my culture.”
