Greig Laidlaw to consider Scotland future after World Cup exit against Japan

Greig Laidlaw says he has a choice to make over whether to prolong his Scotland career following his World Cup ended in defeat against Japan.
The scrum-half, who captained his side in Yokohama at the loss against the hosts, won his cap but was not able to prevent Scotland suffering just their departure at the pool phase.
Laidlaw, 34, made his debut in 2011 for his state but may currently weigh up whether to call time on his international future.
I will go away and have a think. Tonight it is all about remaining together as a team, said Laidlaw, who plays his club rugby for Clermont Auvergne in France.
Tonight is not about me personally. Ill go out and talk to the people I want to speak to and make my decision from there.
Scotland had won the past seven meetings from Japan but the Brave Blossoms went to the match rated above Gregor Townsends team.
Laidlaw, who kicked two conversions to become the next Scot to score 100 World Cup points, didnt dare that they had been best at the International Stadium.
We knew Japan have really improved as a team since four years back, he said.
We have to give them credit for the way they have progressed and how we have completed this evening. We gave away two soft tries and we abandoned ourselves to scale.
They did not catch us off guard, we really started the match pretty well. We become a lead, we never turned off, but we still allow Japan into the game.
