View Full Version : Scotland A

At least one of our squads are doing well at the moment. Andy Robinson and Sean Lineen seem to be doing a good job with Scotland A as they got another good win last night, beating Ireland A 67-7. A 10 try win is not something you can cheer for as Scottish fan. At least the future of Scottish rugby is looking good but it also begs to question, why arn't some of these players playing in the 1st XV?

We might as well just play the A side, cant do any worse..

Yeah at least they might score more than one try in three games

Ireland A had Michael Bradley as a coach, excellent scrumhalf, terrible coach. When was the last time Connacht didn't finish last?

Munsterman - in about 3 months time! ;)

Seriously though, a fantastic win for the A side - you can use the irish being bad as an excuse all you want, but (apparently) we were still good.

But Hadden MUST reward these players by giving them a first team chance - otherwise it proves what he was talking about pre-tournament to be utter ********!

Also good to see Max Evans played well - hasnt even been playing for Glasgow this season, yet comes in and scores a double on his debut at this level. heres hoping Lineen rewards him with a place in the 22 at least for friday. Certainly the Evans brothers seem to be our new Lamont brothers - now all we need is a decent stand-off and midfield and were laughing! :D (although G-Dog played well also)

Yeah I'd like to see Morrison come up and play at 12 against England or Italy. I've not seen much of him, but from the highlights of the game he looks like he's got a better passing game than Henderson and can actually straighten up and create space outside him. If you put him and De Luca together we might have some semblance of potency in attack.

You can see the highlights here (http://www.scottishrugbytv.com/ScoIre.html). Max Evans has the best celebration. :)

Thanks for the link, and yeah these players are playing really well at this level and could solve some of the problems that Scotland currently have. As Schalk said, wont make the team any worse really
