Scots target World Cup win


Former Scotland back Chris Paterson believes his country could achieve their target of winning the World Cup in 2015. That, along with a Six Nations Grand Slam, is the headline aim in Scottish Rugby's new four-year strategic plan. "It's an ambitious target, but I think it's good to set ambitious goals," Paterson told BBC Scotland. "International rugby is so close, so why wouldn't it be do-able?"

Scotland bounced back from finishing bottom of the Six Nations to emerge from their Australasia tour undefeated. "We've seen Scotland win three games on tour over the last three weeks," said Paterson, who retired at the end of the Six Nations to join the national coaching structure. "In the Six Nations, Scotland won zero out of five, and certainly the first three could have been wins against England, Wales and France."
