RUGBY UNION: Getting right for the game comes first for Ross
GORDON Ross will remove his coach’s hat in the build-up to London Welsh’s clash at Nottingham tomorrow.
Ross, who is assistant to head coach Justin Burnell at the Exiles, retains his place at fly half.
He worked with Burnell in getting their message across in training, but on matchday will be very much focused on playing.
“When it is an hour before the game, I need to be able to get my personal preparation right,” said the former Scottish international.
“It has been going alright so far in pre-season and now in the league.
“I will always keep myself fit and be available when Justin and myself think I am right to play.
“If I can contribute to the team, I will keep playing as long as I’m able.
“It is just trying to make sure I can perform to a good standard.”
Ross added: “We made a lot of mistakes against Bedford, but the players realise that and are keen to work hard and improve.
“When we got our execution right, we looked quite dangerous and we would definitely have taken that result before the game.”
