Rovers starlet makes dream Scotland debut

Hull KR Academy starlet Dave Scott made a dream debut for Scotland at the weekend, scoring two tries in a 26-6 victory over Ireland.

The 18-year-old Glaswegian also kicked two goals and was Scotland’s stand-out performer in the game which was played in his home city, making it an understandably proud day for him.

“I’ve dreamed of playing for my country from being a young boy,” he said. “I was nervous and excited at the same time to be honest and it was an experience that I’ll never forget.

“Scoring the two tries was obviously a massive bonus but I was just in the right place at the right time really. It was just a fantastic day all round and now I’ve had a taste of it I definitely want more.”

Scott should get that chance when Scotland take on France in their next Autumn International Series fixture and he’s looking forward to it already.

“It’s a couple of weeks away but I’m looking forward to it and it’ll be a big test for us,” he added. “As I did last weekend, I’ll just go out there and try and play as well as I can. I’m learning all the time and will keep working as hard as I can so that I can hopefully keep improving.”

The Robins’ Head of Youth, Martin Dunn, was delighted to see Scott perform so well and believes that the youngster has a big future.

“I am absolutely delighted to see David reap the rewards for the hard work he has put in since arriving at Hull Kingston Rovers earlier this year from Easterhouse Panthers in Glasgow,” he said.

“He is a model professional whose work ethic and talent can undoubtedly see him reach his goal of playing in the Super League for Hull Kingston Rovers.”
