  1. On paper i like the look of the Scottish Team, they have firing power this year as well, not sure where they are going wrong. Much like my beloved Welsh Team.

  2. Scotland team I would pick:

    1 Ryan Grant
    2 Pat MacArthur
    3 Moray Low
    4 Richie Gray
    5 Grant Gilchrist
    6 Rob Harley
    7 Kelly Brown
    8 Johnnie Beattie
    9 Greig Laidlaw
    10 Ruaridh Jackson (just)
    11 Tim Visser
    12 Matt Scott
    13 Alex Dunbar
    14 Sean Maitland
    15 Stuart Hogg

    16 Dougie Hall (if fit)
    17 Geoff Cross
    18 Al Kellock
    19 Ryan Wilson
    20 Henry Pyrgos
    21 Duncan Weir
    22 Peter Horne

  3. We have said for years that scotland are on the way, but they never get there, always lacking somehitng.

    They have a speedy back three, but the middfield is lacking, fly half is a problem. Their tight five will have to play a lot better or italy will destroy them as England did. Without the ball the backs coa’ do anything.
