Hamilton claimed this was not what he had expected from his fellow countrymen. “I’m not embarrassed for the team because I don’t play for them now… but I was embarrassed after the game for a number of reasons.
“One, because I put my neck on the line before the game on here [The Rugby Pod]. Doing ITV, I’m with (Brian) O’Driscoll and (Paul) O’Connell, legends of the game, and I was trying to convince them that Scotland will win the game.
“Now an element of me was thinking, ‘We don’t need to win the game, we just need this to be respectable’. But I was watching it and I was embarrassed.”
