Superb Centurion…

Just wanted to make a quick post to congratulate Chris ‘Mossy’ Paterson on (hopefully!) becoming Scotland’s first Centurion!  As has been mentioned across media reports Mossy has played for Scotland during a era of huge change in the game and it is testament to his ability to adapt that Mossy is still a key part of the Scotland team.  He may not be the biggest or, these days, quickest of players but his adaptability, game awareness and one of the best kicking boots the game has ever seen has ensured that he remains a key player for Scotland.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting the man and he was a total gent – considering he was the only sober person in a 500 meter radius it was some achievement.  He happily spent time talking about rugby and even disturbed a grumpy looking French policeman to get a pen to sign a programme for Rory…legend!

So here is a salute to Mossy, may you get many more caps and points – you are a great ambassador for Scottish Rugby and I for one appreciate all your efforts in the navy shirt.

C’mon Scotland….

  1. Well said!

    Not knowing him personally, I feel I share the belief with many others that he exemplifies the best values in Rugby (and therefore in sport).

    Does us proud every time and still appears humbly in front of media, supporters, team mates…

    Keep the Heid, Mossy and I’m sure you’ll play a blinder!

    Go on scotland!
