should be cool. Maybe another one of those matches that will prove the Tier thingy is pretty inaccurate.

Scotland should look to use this game to build the platform they hope to execute during the Six Nations. A forward strong game that has clincial back plays when the move is on.

There isn't an unbeaten record. They lost on a tour in 1989 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1989_Scotland_rugby_union_tour_of_Japan), which was the first ever Japanese win against a Tier 1 nation. One of Japan's greatest players Yoshihito Yoshida scored a great try in that game.


Japanese knew Rugby existed in 1989 ?! :p just to annoy the crap out of you duck, I know what you like ;)
"of course they did you ignorant buffoon blah blah blah...."*insert 5 gifs*

Anyways:
the days when a try was 4 points. lol

Team looks pretty good. Only issue is De Luca, I know that he has been in great from this year. But we have tried him quite a few times on the International scene and he has never cut it. Always is a let down.

Good to see Denton getting the start. Will be interesting to see how Richie Gray does coming off the bench.

Disappointed to see Ford over MacArthur. Ford hasn't played well in a very long time! Also not happy to have Jackson over Weir - he just doesn;t have enough range on his kicks.

I suppose De Luca is about the only option left at 13? Bennett doesn't look ready defensively, and I don't think Duncan Taylor has played there?

I hope it's better than watching matches that make you really doubt whether you're watching Tier 1 nations at all anymore...
Exactly, I took a glance at all the games and so far only Scots and Japan are playing actual rugby I love this. God knows what the hell other teams are doing
