Sports Update: Hart-break of miss will inspire Clay kicker Rob Claymore.

CLAYMORE Rob Hart is determined to ease his conscience by taking the Scots all the way to the World Bowl.

The English-born kicker is still haunted by a field goal he missed in World Bowl 2000 against Rhein Fire in Frankfurt.

Hart's 42-yard attempt drifted wide with just eight seconds left as the Claymores slumped 13-10.

Now, he wants to see off Amsterdam Admirals on Sunday in the hope that it is enough to give him a date with destiny in World Bowl XI at Hampden on June 14.

Hart said: "My whole family were in Frankfurt that day, as were hundreds of fans from Scotland.

"Sadly, I'll never be able to forget about that kick as it was such an important attempt in such a big game - but missing it has only spurred me on to do better.

"If we make the World Bowl this season and I'm put in the same position again, it would be really special for me to make the kick and make amends for what happened.
