    Rugby

    Great day of rugby today for those who enjoy their sportsmen to just get on with playing and not pretending to be injured😀 Just watched NZ cuff France, now Australia v Ireland, England v SA later, Scotland in Canada in the wee small hours. Alloa Rugby Club ball tonight as well. Will most likely watch Scotland tomorrow while nursing a hangover. Paris sevens on as well

    Interesting case here in Scottish rugby. Ex director of Domestic rugby and Finn Russell's dad wins tribunal case for wrongful dismissal describing SRU environment as toxic. Quite bizarre.

    I thought France were unfortunate to lose Fall so early. I don't think it was a red. They fought bravely despite it but it was a pretty scrappy affair.

    Didn't see France v NZ and just back to see the start of 2nd half of SA v England. Boks looking strong, England missing lots of tackles. This SA side were awful just a few months ago. Argentina v Wales could be good later

    Stayed up a bit later than I would normally, to catch the USA-Scotland game.

    Early into the second half and the US showing up well. Strong and athletic, but sometimes a bit too eager which leads them into problems with high tackles or offside.

    Their hooker has been outstanding offensively.
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    £30 on USA @ 10/1....


    pheewww missed conversion, as expected

    30-29 USA



    £330 thank ya very much, Scotland were utterly pathetic in that 2nd half, men against wee girls and USA fully deserved the win, scotland were cruising at 21-6 tae

    Bit of a shocker from Scotland this, although I was very impressed with USA. They were aggressive and athletic as you might expect but I was surprised at how good their game management was.

    Their hooker was great as was MacGinty who ran the show. Compare that with Hastings who, whilst he had some nice touches, never controlled the game like an experienced 10 would.

    We could have nicked it at the end bit would have been totally undeserved. Just goes to highlight the lack of strength in depth in our squad.

    All Blacks are a total machine. Currently dismantling a French team who were playing ok in the first half.

    Irelanda with a series win down under. Good result for them
    England up next, fingers crossed for another defeat and a series whitewash. Would be great to see that arrogant test Jones on the end of that

    Ireland are absolutely incredible at the moment.

    Really hope the bokke whitewash England this afternoon and that Scotland can bounce back against Argentina.

    Argentina have been pretty poor in their last 2 tests against Wales. We were good but they made us look amazing.

    Thank God their is another rugby fan on here amongst all the savages! Felt like I was talking to myself😀
    Yeah Argentina are not great at the moment but Scotland's new boys didn't look too clever last week. Better to have a stronger side this week

    Think townsend experimented a little bit too much in the USA game, although itís a tough balance to strike, when many of the big names/first choice players arenít on tour

    Agree, I think the team v USA should have been the one that played Canada and vice versa.

    Welsh mate it's in the blood! Keep it quiet but I was watching rugby well before I was watching footie!!

    Scotland are a great price to beat Argentina. I've put a tenner on. The USA game was a blip.

    Do you ever go watch Edinburgh?

    Yeah occasionally but not as often as I'd like. When I'm not at Hibs I'm still heavily involved with my local club so end up there more than Murrayfield. I've known some of the Edinburgh boys since they were kids as the started off playing at Alloa and I played with their dads and uncles.

    I have been a few times but found Edinburgh too expensive to go regularly. They've reduced the prices for next season though for pro 14 and kept them the same for champions cup so will go a lot more.

    I go to watch Scotland a lot. It's fantastic value compared to watching Wales.

    We go to Swansea every two years as a club for the six nations, been doing that for years. Going down for the Doddie Weir game in autumn as well.
    To be honest I'd rather support my own home town club than Edinburgh or Glasgow anyway. Good to go to the pro games occasionally though but have more connection to my own club

    Possibly the worst Argentina team I have seen in at least 20 years. Scotland playing well tho and are putting them away and being ruthless. Good first half

    1st half was brilliant to watch. We seemed to score try after try every time we attacked. Argentina were very poor. They were a little better in the 2nd half but the game was already over by then. Looking forward to the autumn tests.
