    [2017 RBS Six Nations] Round 4: Wales v Ireland (11/02/2017)

    You can only use phrases like 'Back to what matters actually' when you get your facts right in the first place. It was Halfpenny who set up Liam Williams and it was the quick tap and go from Webb that set the whole thing up. Scott Williams was merely an extra. - - - Updated - - - Very...

    [2017 RBS Six Nations] Round 4: England vs Scotland (12/03/2017)

    Couldn't agree more - it's truly pathetic. This is one of the worst sports forums I have ever seen. Many on here are only willing to have a constructive exchange with their cronies or engage in petty immature bickering with anyone else who dares to have a different point of view. Thank you and...

    [2017 RBS Six Nations] Round 4: England vs Scotland (12/03/2017)

    Hadrian's wall & haggis - are you going for stereotypical post of the year? You missed 'Donald far's your Calcutta cup' :cool:

    [2017 RBS Six Nations] Round 4: England vs Scotland (12/03/2017)

    Great at turning over ball and has the incredible knack of getting back on his feet quickly after taking a hit from 2-3 players while carrying and being able to gain a further 5-8 metres.

    Maybe you meant Hardie and Strauss? Think Barclay is set to captain the side again.

    [2017 Six Nations] - Scotland

    Are any Scotland supporters on here members of any other rugby forums, specifically related to Scottish rugby? I've participated in numerous sports forums over the years and I'm sorry to say that this one just feels like a big clique with certain members only willing to engage in conversation...

    Lions Captaincy 2017

    I have no doubt he'll step up and perform on the pitch as he is without question a test match animal. I still think there are question marks over his leadership qualities. He doesn't seem to be as dynamic or vocal as say POC or Keith Wood. He seems to be more of a passive character.

    (Very) early thoughts on the 2017 Lions

    Pretty good although some picks are based on previous form and reputation. Assuming they (Faletau, Mako) can re-discover their form and fitness, the only changes I would make would be as follows: 12. Farrell (harsh to be drop out after one ropey game against Italy where he wasn't the only...

    (Very) early thoughts on the 2017 Lions

    This is true. The starting 15 isn't necessarily the strongest 15. One or two on here were questioning Cotter's decision to start Hardie ahead of Watson against Wales but it was the right thing to do as Watson came on and gave a less than fresh Warburton a beat down. Impact in the second half is...

    [2017 RBS Six Nations] Round 3: Scotland vs Wales (25/02/2017)

    I'm not a big advocate of selecting players based on reputation and past form. Moriarty was one of Wales' best performers against England and deserved to keep his place for the Scotland game. The coaches will see Faletau close up in training and I think it's fair to say his impact off the bench...

    [2017 RBS Six Nations] Round 3: Scotland vs Wales (25/02/2017)

    Do Welsh fans genuinely believe that Howley is calling the shots given how much of a control freak Gatland is? It can't be that hard for the two to stay in touch and for Gatland to be dishing out the orders over the phone especially as he has a lot of time on his hands at the moment. Howley...

    [2017 RBS Six Nations] Round 3: England vs Italy (26/02/2017)

    This isn't restricted to sport though. The world is full of morons who are incapable of digesting facts and information rationally and logically. Look at all the racist Trump supporters. They were just low hanging fruit in terms of picking up votes. Perhaps unsurprising given that election and...

    Can we say Scotland are actually back now?

    I did use the words 'soundly beaten' in my original post. For me a big sign of progress this year is closing out wins against the likes of Wales and Ireland. We have really struggled to do this in recent years. This should hopefully breed confidence and lead to winning against the top sides on...

    Can we say Scotland are actually back now?

    That's all well and good but we'll be missing quite a few of our best players who'll be on Lions duty when we go to Australia. They'll be at full strength so it's hardly going to be a progress defining series. Strength in depth is an issue that can't be fixed overnight. The term false dawn is...

    Can we say Scotland are actually back now?

    It's quite conceivable that we go to Dublin and Cardiff next year and lose then people will claim it was another false dawn which shouldn't be the case unless we get soundly beaten. There needs to be some acceptance that the gap is narrowing and that home advantage can really be the difference...

    [2017 RBS Six Nations] Round 3: England vs Italy (26/02/2017)

    A couple of weeks ago Jim Telfer was labelled a mouthy moron/idiot by several English supporters on here for giving an honest account of his experience of playing at Twickenham. I agree it's refreshing to hear honest responses from players and coaches but let's appreciate the honesty across the...

    [2017 RBS Six Nations] Round 3: England vs Italy (26/02/2017)

    It was a tongue in cheek remark in reference to Jim Telfer's siege mentality approach. Scottish rugby's equivalent to Sir Alex. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pHqw4XZhPE

    [2017 RBS Six Nations] Round 3: England vs Italy (26/02/2017)

    Pity this isn't a quote from the English press as it could be pinned up in the Scottish dressing room in a couple of weeks. I think cricket score might be going a bit far. Scotland are getting better at putting in 80 minute performances and were solid in the second half against Ireland and...
