The Scottish rugby stars John Barclay and Geoff Cross have selected the Ford Focus and the Ford Kuga ready for the new season, and collected their vehicles two days after being named in the 30-man squad representing Scotland in New Zealand.

Geoff Cross, Edinburgh Rugby's prop, is one of 12 players selected for the premier global rugby tournament for the first time and John Barclay, Glasgow Warriors' flanker has won 29 international caps since making his debut in 2007.
Anthony Ireson, marketing director, Ford of Britain, said: "As we celebrate our centenary, it is only appropriate that Ford should continue our relationship with the game of rugby. We are delighted to extend our contract with Scottish Rugby and to provide these rugby stars with models from Ford's product range - the Ford Kuga and all-new Ford Focus."
