Re: Edinburgh rents

Anywhere between 700 and a 1000 is about the norm depending on location, amenities etc. if cost is your primary driver you can get much cheaper the further out you go

Re Tandy, was a typical journeyman player but thought he was fairly shite at the Ospreys , disappeared off to Oz but has been a real breath of fresh air, although after years of Taylor I think the players were desperate for a new voice and so he has had a willing audience.

Re: Scotland vs France

The issue with our defence is its been worked out already, we cede easy yards at the side of the breakdown, but defend in more numbers wider, l Weird way to word it , 4 tries in 4 games and that’s actually 1 from a cross field kick starting in 22 1 from a chip over the defence starting from half wa...

Re: Scotland vs France

Targeting the ball has been a consistent strategy all 6N. Worked well against Ireland as it allows you to hang back and interrupt the ruckers.

Re: Bonjour !

Scotland is way to statistics driven right now, reckon 17-9 to France is about right. Scotland will not capitalize when France are blowing out their arses after 60 mins.

With the italian teams not able to fulfill home fixtures that’s 3 points Munster lose so Edinburgh have no excuses for not going for it. Has that been confirmed now?

Scotland defence

So after the first two games I thought Scotland were concentrating on defence knowing their attack was ok but now I kinda think the Scottish attack has been gash since Townsend took over and Finn Russell was papering over the cracks. Possibly a new defence coach has fixed it but Scotland don’t seem ...

Re: The Glasgow Carpet Burns and Cary Grant Appreciation Thread

Not sure Glasgow are being craven, if they say anything then everyone and their dug can turn round and tell them that it wouldnt be a problem if they had beaten the french team at home. For me if ERPC had turned around and said "supporters have bought tickets, thats not fair to punish them"...

Re: New coach

I still think he has to go but its not that clear cut

For me I think toonie stays if he gets 2 out of the next 3 and actually it probabbly comes down to winning in Wales.

If he can win an away 6N game then I think he can stay

Re: Team for England

Thought the props, Cummings and the back row did pretty well yesterday. Tactics had changed slightly when they were knocking the English back in the 5 but a bit of composure and some interesting reffing let England away with it.

Mind u our line out went to shit

Re: 6 Nations 2020

I can’t make up my mind and thought if Scotland did well gt would be proven right and if Scotland were shite fr would be proven right. My gut is scotland doesn’t know how to attack without Finn Russell and therefore we don’t know what to do in the 22. We could have won yesterday, it was a coin toss ...
