One thought on “Scotland name squad for the 2011 RBS Six Nations

  1. No major surprises there, but how will they fare? I could see them finishing in any of 3rd, 4th or 5th, though given the potential of Ireland, England, France and Wales, I think 3rd would be a great achievement. Alternatively, the usual 5th place (though better than the wooden spoon) would be a disappointment, indicative of no real progress. Perhaps a mediocre 4th then….
