Fly-half Matt Scott has eyes on making Scotland's squad for the IRB Under-20 World Cup but knows he needs a strong finish to the season with club side Currie.
Scott starred as Currie demolished Howe of Fife 75-7 at Duffus Park on Saturday to ease into the last four of the Scottish Hydro Premier Cup.
And Scott is now focused on Currie's twin ambitions for league and cup, and hopes that strong performances over the coming weeks will secure his place in the squad for South America.
“There was a bit of rustiness there because we haven't played together for a while,” he said.
“We're just hoping we're going to get better and better as we gel together again.
“We started off pretty structured and we were dominating in the set-piece but it became a bit loose a times. We wanted to stick to our game plan but everyone was eager to get on the ball and everyone was keen, just because we haven't played together for a while.”
Scott enjoyed a head-to-head with Howe's Ross Aitken, who is on the fringes of the Scotland age group squad, but it is the highly-rated Edinburgh Accies playmaker Alex Blair who was first choice No.10 in the Six Nations.
“Alex is a senior Academy player and they rate him very highly. I've got great respect for him as a player,” added the Edinburgh University student.
“I was happy to get as much game time as I could and make the best impression I could when I came on. The coaches obviously felt Alex was the best player for the job.
“Hopefully I can push for a starting place in one of the games at the World Cup. But all I can do now is get my match fitness and my match practice back up.”
