Near enough an unchanged side, less Barclay in for Wilson.  Will need to be incredibly tight, can't really afford to start the way we did against the Irish or they'll punish us.  Thought France were very quick in the first half against England but tired towards the end, hopefully something we can punish them for.

Also worth mentioning, Hogg gets his 50th cap  :thumbsup:

John Strauss ruled out of the rest of the 6 nations now too, another big blow :(

Think Denton made his comeback for Bath after 5 months out so hopefully he will be drafted in to replace Strauss.

Laidlaw is by far the bigger loss. Price is a decent prospect but nowhere near the level of the scrum halves we've still to face, even Italy's.

I knew there were rumours but Maitland is also now out for this weekends game.  It's going to be a tough ask, but have confidence in Barclay as a player and hopefully his captaincy will see us through...

The morris dancers jizz themselves over Farrell and that big diddy Itoje but there cannot be a better player in the 6 nations than Hogg.

Still one of their best players, bench or not.  I'd rather he wasn't anywhere near the team  :thumbsup:

I'm not sure if i'd be happy about Farrell or not, he was woeful in their last game.  Probably be great if it was true!

True, you've got to think he's on the bench for a reason though... possibly not fit enough to start which would be a boost.

True, he is only coming back from injury but i'd rather he wasn't anywhere near the team.

I see there's a campaign to keep Vern Cotter.  Time will tell if it was the right decision to go for Townsend and not offer him another contract.  The two of them working together would have been ideal.  Bit pointless to be starting a petition, he's got himself sorted in France does he not?

That Cotter, and the England coach are the two biggest abominations in the 6 nations.

I detest them both with a passion that surprises even me. Even if I didn't know they were egg-chasers, I couldn't tolerate being in the same room as either. If they were both in the same room and I was unfortunate enough to also be in it, I think I would explode with emotional distress and severe anguish. Horrible horrible cunts. Probably sexual deviants - closet arse-lickers of men of mysogynistic vilifiers of women.

Cotter has been fantastic, not sure him working with Townsend would have worked though. Townsend seems ready for the top job, if the SRU hadnt given it to him he'd have been off and we'd have missed out on a fantastic coach.  He's been groomed for the role for years too so losing him by not giving him the job would have undone years of planning.  You're right though, time will tell whether it works or not, based on his work with Glasgow Warriors I'd say he's got a good chance of carrying on the improvement with the Scottish national team.

Aye Cotter heading back to france I think, so even if the SRU did want to keep him I doubt they'd be able to.

Thank fuck for football ;)

That was disappointing as much as it was embarrassing.  Not the team we've got used to seeing under cotter. I genuinely wonder whether Russell has some serious brain damage as since that head knock his decision making has been very suspect. Some of this shit he tried today wad beyond logic. So weak through the middle, but I think the injuries have finally taken their toll against a side who really wanted to beat us. They definitely raised their game. Thank fuck I was too far away to take up the offer of a spare ticket from a mate. Would have been horrific.

Shite result and performance, reckon the damage was done picking up a yellow card within 2 mins. We were generally poor anyway. Here's hoping some of the injured players are back for the Italy game so we can finish the competition strongly.

I believe a big win would mean we've a good chance of climbing to 4th in the world, would be brilliant with the World Cup draw coming up.

Meaningless sport as far as national pride goes. Most of thae chunts belting out "flower of scotland" voted NO, they can feck aff and fecking feck aff to somewhere their ironic hypocrisy is appreciated, like a masonic lodge or a british legion.
