You seen Australian Super teams recently?

He was capped in an era when Nic White, Nick Phipps and Will Genia were the competition. He must have been good at some point.

Yeah, he looks like he's going to work out. Decent carrier, lineout throwing is not an issue and obviously he's a fucking try machine.

Especially when we've been dominating that in the second half

Dragons didn't touch the ball again. 

5 points for us. 4 for Ulster. 0 for the Saffers. Perfect.

Been a long day with rugby.

Scotland: defence/scrum still excellent. Effort's great but we've a squad which can do much better. There's negatives though. The line out was better but hardly beautiful. Italy are stodgy at home so I'll take the win. We should've got the BP though but were very wasteful. Jamie Ritchie missed the rugby version of a sitter. Italy were so poor it's frightening. Toony still under pressure.

Glasgow: always in control but made to wait for the BP. Defensively we were generous hosts again like last week so made Dragons look better than they were. Kebble lucky not to have saw red after punching the Dragons player on loan from Newport County FC. Dobie was excellent after the error at the start. Frisbee should have stayed on the bench. Get Niko back to covering 9.

Finally, is Naka ok??

We've scrummed well and defended well.  Our forwards have been pretty decent (until we get within striking distance of the try line)  but there's a huge disjoint between 9 and 10 and it's like watching two separate teams at times.

No idea how we fix this, though.

Just catching up on the Wales v France game. If we ruck against France on our own ball the same way we did against Italy we will get destroyed and be turned over repeatedly. The forwards are going to have to front up and hit those rucks, and the carrier cant be as exposed as they were yesterday.
