Fit again: London Scottish scrum half Jamie Stevenson

London Scottish scrum half Jamie Stevenson cannot wait to put the nightmare of last term behind him and win his number nine shirt back, writes Andy Weston.

The 22-year-old Scotland A international missed most of last term with a serious knee injury but has played a full part in pre-season clashes with Glasgow Warriors, Saracens and Esher in August.

The exiles kick off their Championship campaign at home to Rotherham tomorrow as they bid for a top four finish, having finished fifth last term.

And Stevenson is ready.

“We want to use this game to set down a marker for the team’s around us,” he said.

“Last year we were very close to the top four and over the last few seasons we have progressed a lot. We are an ambitious club that wants to be in the play-offs.”

He added: “I don’t want a repeat of last year.

"I want to stay fit, play well and get my starting spot back.”
