    We're hardly minnows of the game. Think we're ranked sixth in the world. And Ireland, with a smaller population, are right up there with the best on the planet. With a better organised domestic structure Scotland could come close to bridging that gap.
    6th out of what, 12 countries that take rugby seriously. We are minnows in terms of that scale.

    Doesn't really work that way in rugby. If it did New Zealand and Ireland, with similar populations to Scotland, wouldn't be in the world's top 3. It's down to domestic infrastructure which has been woefully mismanaged in Scotland.

    Ireland are favoured for the championship, if not the slam. France have already lost a game, wales and italy not really at the races, and England looking less than settled. I’m not saying Scotland were in with a big chance of the championship, but I find it odd that we’ve brought in southern hemisphere refs, but not TMOs. Why did we have an Irish TMO, who then manages a decision that could have put us on 2 wins before any other team, where there is at least one angle showing the ball grounded, which he states clearly, then walks it back and claims there is no evidence.

    Maybe it sounds paranoid, but it smells.
    Just cos you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not cheating *******s.

    I rarely watch rugby (and didn’t watch this whole match) but put it on earlier in the game and actually noted that I thought it was being referred well - and that relative to football it looked quite easy to referee well.

    Oh well.

    Or the fact that a far bigger proportion of those two’s populations really care about rugby?

    Yeh, that certainly applies to New Zealand, but the phenomenal surge in rugby's popularity (and consequent success) in Ireland has really only happened in the last 10-15 years and owes much to the superb coaching and player development structure they've worked so hard to embed. Not so long ago (particularly prior to Italy's arrival) you'd earmark the Ireland games as the ones Scotland would fancy their chances in. Now it's their hardest fixture.

    21-0 half time. Both teams are missing a load of their best players due to the 6 nations and injuries. Its all been a bit flat after the opening 5 mins.

    Glasgow's handling worse than your average HGV at times. Just as well Dragons are abysmal.
    Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

    i quite enjoyed that not good for Welsh rugby seeing their regional sides occupying four out of the bottom seven positions with two of them in the bottom three.

    Glasgow up to 2nd and Edinburgh in 5th

    Darcy Graham ruled out of Saturday's game v England due to a new injury sustained during training for Edinburgh.

    Ritchie, Kinghorn and Steyn all back and start for Scotland this weekend. Very nearly full strength and best team we could field considering injuries imo.
