Scottish rugby sevens battle it out for Games
09 July 2002
Scotland has announced the 20 players from whom the 12 strong team will be seleceted.
Louise Martin, chairman of the Commonwealth Games Council for Scotland (CGCS)said: “We have selected a strong team, with everyone who has met the selection criteria going to Manchester regardless of overall numbers. Our minimum target is to improve on our medal tally in Kuala Lumpur and I am confident that this can be achieved given our thorough preparation and thanks to the support of our team sponsor Bank of Scotland, Sport Scotland and many others.”
Following feedback from the 1998 Games, the athletes will be supported by an increased team staff, which again reflects the requirement for increased medical and sports science support including doctors, physiotherapists, psychologists and analysts.
The main party of the Team will travel to Manchester on Monday 22 July.
The rugby sevens team are
Michael Blair, Darren Burns, Marcus DiRollo, Iain Fairley, Ross Ford, David Gray, Rory Kerr, Graeme Kiddie, Clark Laidlaw, Sean Lamont, Mark Lee, Donald MacFadyen, Ian McInroy, Scot Paterson, Adam Roxborough, Gavin Scott, Conan Sharman, Kenny Sinclair, Simon Taylor, Andrew Wilson.
