  1. Why has Jackson been picked> Parks hasn’t been playing well but neither has Jackson for Glasgow. If he’s, fairly crudely, seen as a creative fly half, why do we have a winger at 12? I have a worrying feeling Lamont will get pulled out of position defensively.

    I don’t see what Walker is adding. Big man, fairly quick, but no awareness whatsoever. Combined with an apparent desire to jog into defenders rather than run at them and we have a suitably shit ‘white Lomu’. Danielli might be out of form, but what about Thompson of Edinburgh? He has been known to run at least. Even Simon Webster…
