    Some game, it was always going to be an uphill struggle after a harsh red card.

    Absolutely ****ed by Wayne Barnes. Disgusting officiating.

    He should be removed from international test rugby: heís absolutely shocking.

    Stupid sport at the end of the day. Way too much power to arbitrary refereeing decisions.

    Definite red card nowadays. Contact to the head is a red card. Players should know better, it is the rules. As someone who played through the 80s, 90s, 2000s, 2010s, and stopped playing in 2018 after 37 years and have seen law changes year after year players need to adapt. It is their ****ing job. Fagerson cost us that game make no mistake.

    away to le french next= pas de points
    home to ireland= probably nae points
    home to italy= probably points


    end of the day we will finish the table in our pretty regular position after such a promising start, that was a real sickener today

    Scotland's game management still leaves a lot to be desired.

    Need to put points on the board instead of repeatedly kicking for touch.

    Nope. It was reckless, he did hit the head. Straight red. Feel a wee but for him as it wasn't as bad a O'Mahony last week. But you start with the red and check to see if there are mitigating circumstances. The face he ran from distance and made no attempt to wrap his arms means red card. Lost the game because of it

    players not wrapping the arms these days are inviting a red card, coupled with contact to the head is doubling down on that.

    the distance he came from he had time to adjust where he was making contact, even with Hogg pulling the guy away

    Personally thought it was harsh. Pitch ref had the perfect view and gave nothing. Didn't seem clear enough for a red for me. Game changing decision with little or no contact with head and player not in any way injured. On that basis there will be three or four reds a game. Something not right also about English officials making a decision which directly favours their country imo.

    France with another win today too. I donít think Wales will beat England but if they do it could well be Wales v France for the grand slam last game of the tournament.

    Yeah I dont think wales will beat either England or France...Im still hopeful Scotland can pull off a shock against France, its gonna be some game with the philosophy of both teams. I think we could win our last 3 matches if we screw the nut re infringements. I dont think Ireland are any great shakes under the new management team who I think was a weird appointment in the first place (like England, some great players but the system they are using isnt the best).

    Losing to Wales has scuppered our hopes IMHO. It was so important we followed up the Twickenham win with another victory but we blew it.

    Think Scotland have a decent chance of beating France who imo weren't great in Dublin.

    I do too. Wales have turned it on against them when it matters in the past though. Josh Adams is back too I believe?

    Fagerson suspended for the remaining games of the Six Nations (4 week ban). A harsher penalty than Patrick O'Mahoney, who only got a 3 week ban.

    The system is quite broken!

    two points;

    1. I don't think it was even a red, a yellow at best. it ruined the game for us.
    2. we're luckily blessed with great props to cover.

    we've a chance against France and Ireland and if we can do it I think everyone can beat everyone this year... we have a chance.

    It was a red. Absolutely no doubt and I can't believe folk are still saying otherwise. Its a shocker that O'Mahony got a lesser ban though
    You're right about the people we have some pretty decent ones at the moment but Fagerson is a loss

    Seen a clip tonight re the end of the Exeter game where the guy had a kick to win it but after starting his move, then took so long to kick the bloody ball that the opposition ran and booted it into touch to win the game.

    All a bit odd 😂

    Sunday's game increasingly looks like it's in doubt as cases amongst the French side are spiralling.

    28-0 win, please (most likely, it'll be rearranged for the following week when there's no fixtures).

    Decision due on Wednesday night apparently. Moving it to next week would result in punishing Scotland, as none of the players can readily be released on a rest week from their clubs, meaning we could potentially be missing most of our non-Pro 14 players.

    France need to suck it up and call in some of their youth players (who are still bloody brilliant, as we seen against England in the Autumn Nations), or forfeit the tie IMO. Moving it punishes the wrong team.

    Agree don't think they should be allowed to not play the game. They have a huge talent pool to pick from. Anything which results in Scotland having a weaker team would be so unfair
