  1. hines is a great player not the fastest but very dogged gets under the skin of the opposition !!! a leader as well

  2. I genuinely like the look of this Scottish side and I think that they could cause the French a few problems in Paris at the weekend. Check out Andy Nicol’s thoughts on Scotland’s prospects here
