    England have a habit of not turning up sometimes , if they go out thinking its a formality ye might win , ye should have beaten Wales .
     
  2. If they had beaten Wales then yes there's a chance they'd be complacent, but they will be focused on a BP win.

    Our forwards are In for a tough day but they'll compete... it's our backs/attack that haven't a chance.

    I just hope Laidlaw starts instead of hospital pass Price.
     
  3. Scotland team to face England has been leaked

  5. :D

    Has to be close to the best 7 in the world... easily the best in the NH - for me, at least


    It's a joy watching him play for Edinburgh

    Stopped even thinking about the 6N......way too depressing. Too many of the really key players missing, just hope we have a full roster for the RWC.

    I think England will beat Scotland but I don't think it will be enough to take the championship to be honest. I can't see Scotland taking the game, especially with the injury list. I think there will be 1-2 Scottish tries though.

    Wales have been strange this year... they didn't play well against France and managed to win - it was a gift really. Wales played an unbelievable, but risky, game against England. Rush defence is always risky and requires serious confidence... I could also see that they were targeting Sinckler, Manu and Owen Farrell (which worked well). England didn't kick well and I felt that if they'd made well executed territory kicks rather than poorly executed box kicks, it would have been a different story. Wales gave a lesson in the value of homework and executing the right gameplan.

    I'm a fan of Marcus Smith (probably because my wife is Filipina) and now see he is on the squad. I don't think he will play but secretly hope he does. He is sparky and will be one to watch at the 2024 World Cup.

    Looking at the order of the games this Saturday if and it’s a biggish if Wales beat Ireland then the England Scotland game doesn’t have much sense of competitive look about it . Obviously Scotland would love to stop any chance of England winning the Six Nations and England would love to win it .
    So the reverse is if Ireland beat Wales the the England Scotland game is set up to be a cracker .

    Watched the England Wales game again last night and it was obvious that Wales line out it’s uo to scratch.Ireland need to kick for territory and put pressure on the Welsh line out which looks to be a weak point of there game .
    Kicking and the line out is one of Ireland’s better weapons in there arsenal.

    Hope do get to many lambs on Saturday.

    It's a bit of a joke. As has been said before the SH teams are jealous of the money the 6N generates.

    A lot of it would be great to watch, but the Pacific Islanders in particular are treated even worse than teams like Georgia in the NH already feel they are being treated.

  12. Theres a man going to Twickenham on Saturday... he has only ever gone 3 times before.

    All 3 times, Scotland have come away with the win.


    Clutching at straws? Aye... but I think it's all we have left for this campaign

  15. Slight correction - he has been to Twickers 3 times and never seen Scotland lose.


    His name is Peter Murray - '71, '83 and the draw in '89 are his 3 games. He is 73 years old.

    Arr. Was thinking that there must be a draw in there somewhere . I checked the results a good few times and then thought my might not be 5/6 nations game re checked and couldn’t find any other wins . Mystery solved

  17. Same, I knew '71 and '83 (I was born later that year, so Scotland have never won there in my lifetime :oops:).

    Without looking results... how does a draw work - previous years winners retain the cup? If yes, I'm happy for us to 'park the bus' :ROFLMAO:

    I suppose if you don’t lose you’ve retained the cup . You haven’t lost it.

    There’s more chances of me winning a few quid on the Gold Cup this afternoon than that result
