“I’m a bit surprised”, said Short after finding out he was leading try scorer in the tournament’s history.
“There’s a lot of good players, both old and new who have played in the JP Morgan 7s so I’m quite proud with that record, and I’m looking forward to adding to my tally this year”.
“The JP Morgan 7s is fast becoming more than just a curtain raiser for the regular 15 a-side competition; teams want pick up that first available piece of silverware – It is important that players get that experience for the season, getting some game time, getting some touches of the ball and things like that” said the 23 year old.
Short added; “Every time I’ve played in the JP Morgan 7s I have played quite well as have all the lads - For me personally I’d like to improve upon what I’ve done previously in this tournament and set the standard for the rest of the season”.
“I don’t see any reason why we can’t go all the way this year.”
