Magnus makes international debut against tough Argentina

‘To see him receive his cap post-match was a special moment’

FORMER Oban High School pupil Magnus Bradbury made his debut for the Scottish national team at BT Murrayfield on Saturday in Scotland’s 19-16 autumn test win against Argentina.

Magnus made history by becoming the first player from the Oban area to represent his country at this level.

Having originally only been invited to train in the 2016 autumn test squad, the Edinburgh back rower was called up to the starting fifteen early last week by Scotland head coach Vern Cotter. Magnus was selected to play in the back row at blindside flanker alongside fellow Edinburgh players Hamish Watson and experienced number eight John Barclay.

Playing 52 minutes of the nail-biting, last-minute win, Bradbury impressed in his first Scotland appearance with some confident powerful runs, impressive tackling, including a try-saving effort on Argentina’s winger Guido Petti, and some clever play at the breakdown, slowing the ball for Argentina’s attack and helping build a good attacking platform for Scotland’s scrum-half and captain Greg Laidlaw.
