  1. Rugby - Union And League

    Strongest team available so pleased overall. All we need is for Finn to remember his brain and we're good to go. It'll be interesting to see who starts at centre alongside Sam Johnson for Glasgow on Friday night since Grigg's with Scotland. Ruaridh Jackson isn't in the Scotland squad I can see so I reckon he'll start at 15 for Glasgow. Lee Jones was concussed during the Cheetahs game on Friday night. I'm not sure if he's injured or recovered but Toony's allowed him to stay with Glasgow...

    Well that was a fantastic result for Edinburgh on Friday night. If I'm being honest Ulster are in a bit of a poor place atm but you can only play what's in front of you and Edinburgh took advantage. It doesn't appear to be entertaining rugby but remember that they're managed by Richard Cockerill-saurus. Nothing fancy but far tougher. If you want to beat Edinburgh just now then you'll have to go through a brick wall to do it. Delighted with the Glasgow game on Friday night. After the Dragons draw it was great to bounce back with a BP win. Caught out at the start with the Cheetahs pace but Niko scored a great try and Jacko's try made me think that Hogg and himself had been separated at birth. The fact that Munster had to settle for a losing BP means Glasgow are now 16 points clear with the trip over to Munster on Friday night.

    Staggered over the weekend. However they try to avoid Sunday if possible as kids rugby is played then traditionally.

    Warriors team for home game vs Cheetahs tomorrow night. Potentially a very tricky match. We're the only team to have beaten them in SA. The Cheetahs haven't won away from home yet but it'll happen soon as they made Cardiff work very hard on Sat night. I just hope that it isn't tomorrow night. I hear that a few of their flying machines are away with SA 7's atm and Dave Rennie will know this opposition from his days managing the Chiefs in Super Rugby. Therefore we have a couple of potential advantages there. Tough old game nevertheless though...

    What a day at Murrayfield. Great win. After last weekend I think we needed a BP win to still have a shot at the title but it was very important to recover from Cardiff or else the critics and relegation merchants would perk up. Greig Laidlaw was like a conductor with his orchestra. In these better times his cool head leadership philosophy is 2nd to none. I'd even consider having Ali at 9 and Greig mentoring him at 10. Greig had his first handful of caps at 10 when Chris Cusiter was at 9 including when we beat Oz on their own patch in 2012. However the forward pack were just as instrumental in getting the win especially Gray and Gilchrist. At the end when the ref turned over the maul to us was what won us the game. Forwards take a bow. Finn was very self indulgent again. He can do something to just about cost you a game but on the other hand he can win you a game when on form. He's like Niko's Scottish cousin. On a final note, it's a very forward and physically orientated France team these days but Teddy Thomas is one of the greatest wingers to ever have visited Murrayfield. Serge Blanco-esque.

    The dive was early but he was too obsessed with the try line and forgot about the guy who was just to his right who'd have scored a try. Gatland said in the build-up that he thinks Wales are the fitter team. Not sure if I agree with that. They're being suffocated.
  10. Rugby - Union And League

    Wales were very unlucky but to me there was no CLEAR downward pressure. We're now into the last 20mins and Wales seem to be huffing and puffing a bit. I think the 2 early tries have given the Welsh a wee bit too much to do.
  11. Rugby - Union And League

    One of the finest No8's in the world but at f/t today will have lost 97 international matches. We have Keith Earls to thank for that last ditch tackle as Italy were close to a try BP. Just incase Scotland's trip to Rome is a wooden spoon decider. Though Ireland have lost Robbie Henshaw and Tagdh Furlong which may help going to Dublin...

    Last night, whilst not disappointing, was certainly frustrating. We coughed the ball up in the Dragons danger zone too often but fair play to the Dragons as they would possibly target this with our injuries and internationalists away. What has to be remembered is the Dragons are limited but they make themselves very stuffy to beat on their own patch where other teams can struggle on the 'challenging' surface. Also, their only 2 Welsh internationalists, Tyler Morgan(?) and Hallam Amos, weren't picked for Twickers as they're just back from injury so played last night. This meant Dragons were at full strength. If I had been offered Glasgow to be unbeaten domestically barring 1 defeat and a draw so far I'd have bitten the proverbial hand off. Next week's a break week in the 6N so hopefully a few more guys are released for the Cheetahs visit on Friday night. As for the internationals Scotland MUST bounce back tomorrow. France traditionally suffer from travel sickness and we need to prove that last Saturday was just a bad day at the office. The French will be bigger and more physical but we're more mobile imo so if we can keep the scrum up we can hopefully get our backs to run them ragged. My main concern is another hiding for the Under 20's though...
  13. Freemasons “discriminated against”

    I believe in a God i.e. higher power and I'm fairly certain of an after-life. Therefore, I'd meet that prerequisite to join at least. Despite this I'm not really a religious person imo but I think Freemasonry is likewise. Belief in a higher power is essential but they don't come across as a religious organisation overall...

    Tomorrow night will be a banana skin for Glasgow. For a start the Rodney Parade pitch is hardly beautiful and the Dragons have the experience of Zane Kirchner starting at fly half with Gavin Henson on the bench. Then they have Hallam Amos starting at full back who's always a threat. Our team is very strong and the game is very winnable but we'll need to be careful.

    If lunchtime firewalls are down in the office lol then check out Glasgow Warriors website. They've announced the team to play the Dragons. Ratu Tagive makes his first start after long-term injury.
