If your Granny comes from Scotland …are you a Scot!.
Am a big rugby fan and this month Scotland heads to South Africa for its “winter tour” What a summer of sport we have to look forward to and South Africa is one of my dream countries. Frank Hadden has included Warrior player, Kiwi Sam Pinder.
I like Sam but he joins a really big list of “Kiwi’s” who have worn the Scotland jersey but are not really Scottish. Some have been great for Scotland like Sean Lineen who has given everything to Scottish Rugby to others who simply come here because they fail to make the grade at home.
Sam discovered that his Granny came from Musselburgh so he qualifies to play for Scotland….does the fact your Granny comes from here really make you a Scot…I have cousins who have never been to Scotland and yet according to this their yet unborn children have the right to represent Scotland….am not sure I agree with this!
