    I think Wales will win it again this year.

    Sorry to start with a negative one but I think this may be the end of Townsend's reign. Second bottom for us I think.

    Happy for anyone who follows the sport to give me more hope though, as my rugby knowledge is very limited.

    sadly I think you could be right, we seem to be going backwards under his stewardship

    I was speaking to a 'Scottish Rugby legend' the other day through work. He was certain Townsend will be away regardless of how the tournament goes.

    He hates him though so may just be wishful thinking on his part.

    While I'm happy with the squad Townsend has picked, part of me fears you may be right. There's a lot of youth and energy in the squad, and he's pulled in a lot of the players from a hugely successful Edinburgh side so far, but we lack the physicality compared to France, England, Wales or Ireland. I like that Townsend has tried to continue us playing a fast and dynamic form of rugby, but there's 2 sides to the game. Also, our handling always seem to let us down when we're playing the high-speed version we try and play.

    I fancy it'll finish: England, Ireland, Wales, France, Scotland, Italy, sadly. Our opening two games are truly brutal, but we're capable of beating both Italy and France (at home anyway). I have a horrible feeling we'll finish with just the 1 win though.

    We will be up there. We have England at Twickenham though which will be hard.

    I've been told a few times now by people involved in the game that Hogg and Finn can't stand each other. Apparently Laidlaw kept the peace. I wonder if Laidlaw retiring and Hogg being made captain has led to this. Also Russell and Townsend had a barney at Twickenham last year. Then add in the court case with his dad and the SRU. It makes me wonder if we'll see him play for Scotland again.

    Darcy Graham is injured as well by the sounds of things. A very Scottish lead in to the tournament.

    I can't see past England btw. I expect France to improve with Shaun Edwards on board and the u20 world cup winners coming through for them.

    something to do with drinking in the training camp, then leaving when he was told heíd not be selected for the opening game, allegedly.

    thatís interesting about Hogg and Russell, youíd think playing together for years at Glasgow they wouldnít need a peacekeeper in the Scotland squad

    Speak for yourself, I'm Welsh!

    Do think Scotland could be in trouble now with the Russell news.

    I've seen Russell having almost as many pish games for Scotland than he has good ones. Hastings will be just fine at 10. He has a tendency to believe that he is the be all and end all. If he was drinking, no matter how much, during training camp then the right decision has been made. I still think that this year we can finish above Italy and Ireland

    Not feeling confident at all heading into this campaign. Townsend looks out of his depth and the squad is nowhere near strong enough to worry the likes of England & Ireland..

    Personally canít see past England this year for the grand slam.

    Why does he hate him? Gregor seems a genuinely decent guy.

    They played together so I assume it stems from that. He doesn't have a good word to say about him and insists Scotland would be in a far better position if they had stuck with Cotter. 'His ego is greater than his ability' was close to the quote he used.

    Is the Six Nations tournament shown live on the BBC or is it only available on Sky or something like that?

    Cheers - that'll make a difference for me, I've had to watch the games on French tv as Germany doesn't show the games - it's better watching in a language you understand

    Why? I'm not a massive rugby follower but aren't they always either 6th or (occasionally 5th if we're worse than them), every single year?

    Rugby suffers from predictable results at this level.

    A few years ago they were ALWAYS the whipping boys, in recent years though, while still likely to get beat the gulf between the teams was much less.

    Brilliant start by Wales 👍 Josh Adams en route to being top try scorer again following the World Cup.

    what an incredible **** up by hogg dropping that ball forward on the try line,just astonishing

    of course the usual dreadfull decision making by us as well, in the 1st half opting to take a pop at goals from out at the touchline instead of kicking it out down at the flag for a line out, the kick of course flying metres wide of the post

    lol i've never saw a country that ****s up so often at the try line, we insist on slowing it down allowing the opposition defence time to get organised.


    and yet another muck up

  28. #27
    I'm sick of saying it. It's piss poor coaching. We constantly mess up with turnovers and handling errors on the try line.

    I cannot believe they chased Vern away for this charlatan.

    Townsend's finished after this 6 nations. Long over due.
