Six Nations 2014: Chris Fusaro thrilled with Scotland debut despite loss
Six Nations 2014: Scotland debutant Chris Fusaro insists he enjoyed his first appearance despite losing to England
Chris Fusaro may have made his Scotland debut in the 20-0 Six Nations defeat by England but the Glasgow Warriors star insists he will never forget the experience.
The 24-year-old’s international and club future looks bright despite the disappointment, however, with Fusaro signing a new two-year contract extension with the Scotstoun outfit last week.
I was so proud to make my Scotland debut on Saturday
Fusaro has made more than 60 appearances for the Warriors since joining the club in 2010 and skippered the side several times this season.
“Since joining the Warriors I’ve never looked back and I’m delighted to be staying at the club for another two years,” Fusaro said.
“I’m enjoying working with the coaches and my game has really developed over the past few years.
“I was so proud to make my Scotland debut on Saturday and although I was very disappointed with the result, I will never forget the experience.
“I believe the best place for me to be is in Glasgow, as it’s a club with a very bright future with success on the horizon.”
A product of Bell Baxter High School, Fusaro has represented Scotland at all three age-grade levels, from Under-18 to Under-20, and has played for Scotland 7s and Scotland A.
“It’s fantastic news for the club that Chris has decided to stay and continue his development in Glasgow,” said Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend.
“Chris has had a very good season, which has led to him winning his first cap on Saturday. He displays leadership qualities everyday at the club.
“Chris epitomises what you want to see in a rugby player and is very well respected by everyone in the group.”
