Scotland are far from done at the Rugby World Cup as they prepare to face Romania and position themselves for a pool stage blockbuster on the final weekend.


Gregor Townsend's team, after a bruising defeat to South Africa, ran in 45 points against Tonga to give themselves a chance at qualifying.

With respect to Romania, who have conceded 158 points in their two matches, most are already looking ahead to Scotland’s clash with Ireland - which Townsend has described as a 'straight shootout' for the last eight.

Romania have already faced Ireland and South Africa, conceding 24 tries and scoring just one.

Following the Romanian performances against each of those elite opponents, you would expect Scotland to come away with another bonus point and put themselves in the optimal position for the Ireland decider next time out.

Watson has been Scotland’s premier 7 in recent years, and his work rate and determination has often been unparalleled. But the emergence of Rory Darge and a slew of injuries to Watson has altered his position in the Scotland hierarchy.

He’s one of just five Scots not to play in this World Cup as of yet, and you can be sure he’ll put all his energy into a dominant performance against Romania - and hopefully crack his way into the match day squad against Ireland.
