Rugby: Lamont takes Robinson’s advice on move

Have your say

Rory LAMONT admits he had to quit Toulon after Scotland coach Andy Robinson warned a lack of match action could place his international career in jeopardy.

The 29-year-old, who has 26 caps, re-signed for Glasgow Warriors last week after negotiating his release from the French side. Lamont cited his lack of playing time for his decision to leave after claiming he was frozen out by new coach Bernard Laporte.

Lamont held talks with Robinson about his position following his return from New Zealand.

He said: “I spoke to him a short while after getting back from the World Cup and let him know my situation at Toulon.

“He told me I need to be playing rugby.”
