But here's some of what they had to say...

A P7 pupil at St Francis of Assisi Primary asked: Have you been playing since you were young and was being a rugby player your dream job?

Adam said: "I started play rugby when I was 6 years old.

"My dad took me along to the local rugby club called Hillfoots, just outside Stirling.

"Actually a lot of the friends that I still see and some of the guys I still play with, originated from that team so that’s pretty cool.

"I played for a few years, and as time went on I ended up getting involved in some other sports – things like golf, football, athletics, swimming, these kind of things, and I ended up stopping rugby for a while.

"When I was 14, I went back to rugby.

"My PE teacher at school said to me ‘What you doing playing for the football team? You’re a big lad. You should playing in the rugby team.’

"So, I went back to play for Hillfoots and I played a few games for the school and as time went on, I was really enjoying it and loving it so I went to play for Stirling County, which is my team that I came right through, before joining Glasgow Warriors."

D'Arcy added: "From a young age, I was quite interested in rugby and really enjoyed it.

"From the age of about 15, I was pretty sure that I wanted to be a professional rugby player."

A P7 pupil at St Michael’s Primary asks: What’s your greatest success in a game and your career?

Adam said: “Probably getting my first cap against Ireland last year – that was pretty special.

"The whole family was there.

"The whole extended family was there and I ended up getting an award from my local club back home because I was one of only three or four people to play for Scotland from Marr.

"So it was pretty special for the club and for my family.

"Even though it was deflating we lost, it was still pretty special."

Glasgow Times:

A P7 at St Mary’s Primary School wanted to ask Kieron two questions: How difficult was it to progress to professional level and especially in Scotland; and what advice would you give someone wanting to go down that path?

The basketball star said: "That’s quite a hard one to answer because it was never really my driving factor.

"For me, my purpose was to get a scholarship to America for my education.

"So I was really driven by that.

"My focus then, at that moment in time, was being the best I could possibly be.

"I was very fortunate in that sense that I was working hard every single day to be the best I could possibly be.

"I didn’t know where I could have went with that.

Glasgow Times:

"My advice now would be, if you’re looking to go down that path; first and foremost, you just can’t get caught up in the end result.

"You really have to focus on now and what you can do to improve.

"If you’re talking about being a professional player but right now you’re not the fitness, strongest, fastest, best player on your team or club, then you’ve got a long way to go.

"Your focus should be on the learning aspect of things and getting better every single day.

"Position yourself by playing club basketball or school basketball at a high level then hopefully on to the national team.

"Glasgow Rocks are there.

"They’re always looking for new talent. They have their trials every summer.

"So that’s another way to try and get into professional basketball.”

A P6 pupil at St Brigid’s Primary turned their question to Lawrence: What makes you keep going if you make mistakes?

He said: "It’s a big part of the game that I had to learn, personally.

"I was always really hard on myself and I used to think about it during games.

"It really affected my performance and I wasn’t performing the way I should have been.

Glasgow Times:

"So, I got myself into the way of thinking that; if I make a mistake, the next thing - I just try and do right and it seems to work for me.

"Even if you go on and make another mistake, if you always have in your head; right, I’ll do the next thing right, I’ll do the next thing right – then eventually, you will.

"You’ll do that right thing and you can keep it simple.

"Eventually, you can find your form again and your game starts to grow again from there.”
