Fatigue no issue for Scots

Fatigue no issue for Scots

It was a solid performance by Vern Cotter's men who achieved what South Africa could not when falling to the Japanese in their first game of the tournament.

Next up for the men from north of the border is a clash with the Americans at Elland Road on Sunday and Strauss is confident that Scotland's back-room staff will have them ready for the game.

"Our conditioning staff are very good and they have got things in place for us to do to get the best results out of our recovery," he said.

"We have already implemented a few aspects of that after the game with things like our warm-down. They have done all the research and know what they are doing. I don't have the degree so I'll just listen to what they tell me to do. We trust them completely.

"We've got the full 31-man squad to use and so long as we get the rest we need, we should be okay."
