No rift with Scotland pal Jackson, says fly-half Weir

Published: 01/02/2014

Scotland fly-half Duncan Weir insists he is still best of friends with team-mate Ruaridh Jackson despite taking his jersey for tomorrow’s six nations championship opener.

Weir has been chosen to start at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin as the Dark Blues take on Ireland looking to win their opening match for the first time since 2006.

His Glasgow colleague Jackson, however, has not even been selected in the match-day 23 despite kicking-off two of the country’s three November Tests.
