    Listen mate, I agree with you. However, tribalism and sheer hatred comes first in football. A bit sad but that's the way it is bud...

    I recorded the Edinburgh game to go to Shire's game at Spartans. I then found out that Scarlets were fielding a development squad due to the play-offs and Europe so didn't bother watching it. I'd imagine Leinster did likewise though that's indeed a shock.

    Coming home from the game. Pleased with the performance overall. We lost a try from a maul at the start which was poor but we bounced back with Hoggy's try which was excellent. Horne deserved his MOTM. Finn was good when he came on. He was needing benched tbh and Dave Rennie was honest that if you're not on form then you're dropped. Ali came on and got blown away for Connacht's try which was disappointing. There's something not right with his form at all. We weathered the storm well in the last 20 mins when the ref did everything in his power to get Connacht back in the game. For ages he was stopping the scrum and not allowing any fluency. Alex Allen's binning was expected as the ref was gasping to send off a Glasgow player. To round things off he bins Harley and awards a penalty try. I met him briefly after the game and he was stumped as to why he was binned. However great win and a home s/f awaits. Wouldn't be surprised to see a reserve side for the Ulster game with a view to the derby then the play-off tbh.

    Right enough. Point taken

    There will be a few questions asked about that but I'd rather have him in the Glasgow team personally. Good to see that Rennie isn't afraid to wield the axe regardless of reputation. The way Price and Finn have played recently a spell on the bench will do no harm. A win bags us a home s/f so it's a massive game tbh...

    I'm looking forward to a nice day out in North Edinburgh tomorrow. So far, it's been tough for us to win at Spartans as they're strong at home and we've been a bit unlucky, so it could be a famous win if we pull it off. Ainslie Park is a tidy wee ground with a nice social club up the stairs. Easy to watch the game from the upstairs bar area. Top day out

    Our home game to Connacht on Fri night has an all-Irish set of officials...

    I think Glasgow got him from the same glass factory as Leo Sarto. He got injured at the start of the season then we haven't saw him again till recently. He was stretchered off with his leg in a protective block then Ryan Wilson followed with his shirt being used as a sling to keep his shoulder steady.

    To lose away to a fellow 'big gun' isn't a disaster in itself but coming near to play-off time and making the errors we did was extremely disappointing. We have a home game to Connacht on Fri night so we must ensure we put things right. What's doubly disappointing was clear season-ending injuries to Oli Kebble and Ryan Wilson I'd think.
  10. Rugby - Union And League

    Edinburgh snatched defeat from the jaws of victory I'd say. They were at home and had chances to put Ulster to bed but couldn't finish the game off. So Ulster decided to win the game instead. Tbf, a lot of the Edinburgh team are playing on notice, as Cockers is going back to the drawing board over the close season. That might affect how they play but window shoppers won't be impressed if they can't win important games at home. Edinburgh are the rugby cousins of Hibs.

    George Clancy marks his milestone 100th game as a pro ref when he takes charge of Scarlets vs Warriors this Sat.

    What I find odd was how Fowles is getting praised on the Scottish rugby forum on FB. He's the only pro rugby player I can think of who turns away from the ball in his own danger zone so sells the 1st try to allow Cardiff a base for their win. Also, in a critical period of the game Edinburgh were at a man advantage after a Cardiff yellow card, peppered their danger zone but came away with hee-haw. If you're serious about winning silverware in knock-out rugby you need to be taking advantage of that. Especially at home...
  13. Rugby - Union And League

    Nathan Fowles sold that 1st try to Cardiff and the 2nd try was no communication in defence. Edinburgh appear to have went back to normal as they're all over the place. Cardiff can only throw the game away the way Edinburgh are playing tbh.
  14. Hungary vs Scotland Tues 27th March

    I agree with you in theory but Ireland's best players play in England and get better coaching hence they're more successful. I've only ever been to Scotland footy games for a wee night out and the social occasion but if you take it seriously then look to Ireland's model to see what they're doing right. A win's a win but can't look too much into Hungarian opposition who have bean beaten by Andorra and Luxembourg within the past year.
  15. Club or Country?

    Ultimately though people have stronger connection with the clubs that they follow. I've been to 3 Scotland footy games but ultimately it was just a day/night out tbh. However, it would be good fun qualifying for something interesting again so maybe club AND country to a certain extent?
