  1. Call me cynical but does Toony not want to win on Saturday? He's starting Blair Kinghorn ahead of Duhan van der Merwe and he's got Scott Steele as the benched scrum half leaving no place for George Horne. Blade Thomson is not long back from long term injury so I'd have benched him and started Cornell du Preez who showed up well on Friday night...
  2. Scotland were excellent on Fri night. We completely marshalled the famous Georgian pack. Our set piece at the scrum and line out was excellent and defence was outstanding too apart from the van der Merwe's missed tackle for the Georgian try. The rolling maul was excellent too. We have Pieter de Villiers and Steve Tandy to thank for that. Good coach recruitment by Toony there. We really should be targeting a win vs Wales down in Llanelli on Saturday. We have a solid squad for Saturday. The only thing I'm unhappy with is Sean Maitland missing due to Covid protocols which is a blow. Tagive coming in to replace him. He's getting better for Glasgow but I don't think he's international standard. He's too quiet on the park. Grant Gilchrist being out isn't an issue to me as he's a penalty machine. Gray and Skinner coming back will hopefully keep Harley on the bench. Glasgow started well but ran out of leadership and a game plan. We were away from home, granted, but Ospreys beat us to get just their 2nd home win in almost a year. Seymour still offers flashes but I think his retirement is imminent and Ryan Wilson is Glasgow's Grant Gilchrist with the amount of penalties he gives away. However, our squad are still of a quality standard so even though Danny Wilson wants us to play more pragmatically, we should be doing much better. On Mon night we have Leinster at home with Ulster away the Mon after. If both of those are defeats then the coaching group need to come together to find out what's going on. Despite all that, Covid has affected recruitment and budgets so there's reasons if this season's a write-off. However, vaccines are nearer so if it's like this the following season then tough decisions will have to be made.
  3. After throwing away a healthy lead at home to Ulster they've decided to continue the Chuckle Brothers play away to Bordeaux Begles in Europe. 1st try: Johnstone got a simple ball ripped from him, they broke away but a tackle was missed en route. 2nd try: Give away a scrum penalty advantage then no organisation in defence. Not to worry though, Cockerill's building something great remember...
  4. That's the way it should be. I've been to Hampden just a few times but, whilst 3 points are fair and well, I behave myself but a night out and a jolly's the main thing to me.
  5. Gilchrist gives away penalties like a panto dame gives away sweeties.
  6. What I meant was that Edinburgh Hibs-ed it. Scottish Cup final highlights can easily be watched on YouTube.
  7. As for the game it was pedestrian stuff. Scotland unlucky not to see it out but Israel's goal was sculpted by Michaelangelo himself. He was always my favourite turtle.
  8. This is a lazy stereotype. I've only missed 1 Scotland rugby game since 2012 and I don't vote Tory. Focus more on supporting the Scotland football team instead of making these sweeping statements then that's a grassroot of you getting back to a finals tournament since 1998 perhaps? 😉
  9. I think Edinburgh Rugby and Hibernian FC were separated at birth.
  10. In fairness Kelty signing Joe Cardle would be an excellent signing for them. He's played consistently at a very high level including the Scottish Premiership. Unlike his brother Scott who's a boxer, he's no journeyman. Though in fairness Scott made it onto a Ricky Burns undercard once...
  11. Petrus du Plessis has left Glasgow Warriors to take another coaching role. Kelly Brown is the new assistant coach to Danny Wilson...
  12. Apparently the Crusaders scored with a howling knock-on that the ref never spotted? Also, on Friday morning UK time the Rebels won "away" to Western Force in Sydney in Super Time. Nick Frisby was starting at 9 for Western Force...
  13. Sale Sharks are taking a massive risk by taking on Manu Tuilagi. He's effective when fit but he's made of glass so he's consistently injured. For that reason I'm glad Glasgow have never looked at him...
  14. This is hilarious. If this happens to his B&I Lions team next summer with one token Scot no doubt getting just the last 5 mins of the 3rd Test it'll be absolutely glorious 😂
  15. Warren Gatland's now played 3 lost 3 with the Chiefs. Pleasing...
