  1. Scotland lack a decent prop.
    Id have storkosch instead of hines, who is big but leaden footed

    why dont scotland kick for territory a bit more?

    they have a good lineout and two giant second rowers, why dont they kick the oppo into their 22 and have a go at the lineout?

    they love the wide passes but dont really get anywhere

  2. I dont think Hines has the pace to be an international back row, and England will expose this on Sunday!

  3. Youngs had a bit of a rant at the English forwards, in public, about their failure to support his breaks around the fringes against the French. I can think of two moments quite clearly where Youngs was either not supported or had to wait for what felt like an eternity for an English player to join him. Now, with Hines at 6 I’d expect this to be an area that England will really target.

  4. I think that they will have a problem starting Ruaridh Jackson. This is a crucial game, and he lacks the strategy and control over the game that his counterpart (be it Wilko or Floody) will have.
    Robinson should have started Parks.

  5. If Scotland run accross the pitch as they have done all 6 Nations, theyll get hammered.
    They need territory and they wont get it by trying to run from half way!
