The Rugby Thread

Recommended Posts


Six nations, Calcutta cup et al, great anticipation for a great sporting mini series. I love the Six Nations.

Optimistic for Scotland's chances, but as we all know, this probably stops after a dodgy game V England !?

Anyway, good passionate team sport, relatively fair and free from the usual parochial fitba rivalry in this neck of the woods.

Italy played well yesterday, we could be on our own down there...

To be fair to Italy, more composure in the final phase of the game, they win that yesterday. A bettr drop goal attempt , they win. I was amazed at their final weak effort tbh.

On topic, it's default Scotland again. Fail to execute following good spells via handling errors, end up with a loss to a a robust organised England with a brand new manager? That's eight in a row six nations matches we've lost, unreal.

Some good phases of play , but that's nine losses in a row in the six nations. Keep hearing that this team is only beginning , the team offers lots more and doesn't do itself justice ?

Whit ???

Cannae compete on a physical level for 80 mins, other teams handle , pass and move quicker, we still make crucial handling mistakes. Outscored three tries to two, and good tries they were, but we cannae stay in games at crucial times and influence the key moments.

It as the above poster stated, is shite.

Decent performance by Scotland against the likely tournament winners.

Things are improving, need to get a couple of wins to build confidence which seems to desert us at key points. I reckon we could win the remaining matches against Italy, France and possibly even Ireland.

Perspective, guys, Scotland performs way, way above its level when you look at sheer numbers.

And they may be shite but, and I'm sure I've seen this on here before...they're oor shite.

Aye so close, but so far always seems to be the Scotland way. We might be shite but we are a good shite lol.

I was talking an Irish guy in our boozer as he's a big Rugby fan

Follows Munster everywhere

I said the same as you but he said Scotland should be doing better which surprised me

He said the quality of player has improved the last few years as Glasgow's success has showed

9 defeats on a row i personally can't see that run changing

Wales only played for 20 mins yesterday and still won

Aye, he's right, but that just demonstrates how much we over perform considering the player base - they reckon there are more cricket players than rugby players in Scotland, that's the perspective I'm talking about.

Getting that first win is what's needed, hopefully turn up in Rome, get the win and kick on from there.

Warriors 27 Munster 24

Bonus point win means the Warriors are still in with a chance of making the play offs.

Funny that the footballers - well, Sevco - are whinging about how the Rugby Park pitch is 'dangerous' but the rugby players love it.

Because they are muppets. Look at the tackle and dive Duncan Weir does on the pitch- no injury whatsoever.
