Andy Robinson delighted as Scotland beat Australia

Scotland beat Australia for the first time in 27 years yesterday, maintaining Andy Robinson’s 100% record as the man in charge.

Two penalties from Phil Godman and a dropped goal from Chris Paterson were enough to clinch victory, despite a last-minute try from Ryan Cross – Matt Giteau missed the conversion that would have saved their blushes.

The Scottish players fought heroically, and although Giteau missed three penalties, Scotland’s defensive effort meant that the win was nothing less than deserved.

Robinson said afterwards, “That was the most courageous performance I’ve ever been involved with – either as a player or as a coach.”

He’s now a hero himself north of the border. Get him back to England, I say!

One thought on “Andy Robinson delighted as Scotland beat Australia

  1. Well looks like the scots have a competitive team and to be fair have achieved much more in the autumn test than England.

    They came in worse off after a horific last year, but they seemed to have galvanised and produced a defence which will not back down. Add to that the stabile setplay and a couple of good kickers and you have the making of a good team. They also have a couple of line breakers in the backs which will cause problems for other teams. To think that their best scrummager (E murray) and most creative back (M Evans) are injured, there is hope for something being built here.

    They have to find a backrow though but they are abck and will start the 6N with hope and energy
