'Convinced Scottish rugby has a bright future'

Your views
[BBC]

We asked for your views after a youthful Scotland side scored 11 tries to batter Canada in the first outing of their summer tour.

Here's what some of you had to say:

David: I was able to make it to Ottawa for the game. Great display, Dylan Richardson was really impressive as a ball carrying hooker and Harry Paterson at full-back brought pace and skill. Really good to see the team gel so well, with complex moves and a very low error count. Great start to the tour for a young team.

Jock: This performance showed that we have some really talented players coming through and should not be wetting our pants when we see our U20 players not doing so well in the Six Nations.

William: Fantastic win with a young side. The future is looking good.

Tom: I’ve been convinced Scottish rugby has a bright future and I'm pretty sure we are to reap the rewards of a strong coaching scheme, but do we have the right coaches at the top?

Colin: Good to see new caps in a young and fresh team. They had a crack at taking opportunities when they arose and most of it came off. Gus Warr and Ross Thompson looked useful, as were Paterson and Richardson. Pack needs a bit of bulk, well done Canada for taking their chances. Tougher tests to follow but good to see a confidence-boosting win under the belt.

Martyn: Got to be honest the opposition weren’t great. However, there were some outstanding individual performances. Paterson looks the real deal. Warr was excellent and the team looked really sharp. Hopefully the opposition improves as the tour goes on.

Stuart: Good to see the array of young talent on show. Some of these lads were out to show they are quality. Paterson was outstanding, Richardson fabulous, Warr enterprising. I know Canada were poor, but our line breaks and support lines were top drawer!
