I wish I could start this off some other way, but when did Scotland start to suck so badly?
glad i'm not a big fan of egg chasing. last time i remember us being good was when david sole (is that right, not the guy from starsky & hutch mind) led the team out against england for the whole shebang (calcutta cup and the 5 nations) and rather than running out the tunnel they marched out with their chests puffed out. at least i think there chests were puffed out...
i switched it on today. just in time to see another irish try and a large difference on the score board and turned it over again.
is the new coach(2 years or so), hadden, any good or is it mostly down to the resources at his disposal?
now it's starting to become clear why we're so s**t at rugby just now.
they're all out their heads!!
Scotland star fails drug test
Failing to report an asthma med probably hasn't made Scotland suck all on it's own Scotland was far from the best while I was out there, but they weren't half bad either. Now they appear to be horrible.
I never enjoyed watching rugby as much as round ball, but I played in highschool and was probably better at it than at soccer. Funy thing is, I never really understood rugby--I was a back, so I just had to learn my position and everything else didn't matter much.
if they're still using the same fundamentals then that would start to explain a lot.
More to the point? Does anyone actually care?
The major problem is Ireland/Wales and to a degree England have alot of interest in peanut hugging. Nobody really cares about it in Scotland. I have friends who went to private schools in Glasgow that actively despise rugger.
so we suck at rugby yet we can still pull it out the bag to defeat the english.
Well, that's all that matters really!
Wow, I can't believe you Scots managed to get a win over the mighty England! Congrats!
Btw: I think the game was even live on German free tv (DSF).
for any egg chasing scotland fans on these boards -
now feel free to go and drink yourself into oblivion.
at least we didnt get the wooden spoon
Nail on the head. When you consider that just about every rugby player comes from the Borders. A place with a population which can't be more than 100,000, it's pretty obvious why Scotland won't compete with the other nations. The interest just isn't there. Football's too big everywhere excpet the Borders.
Here is a question for you! There is a former Hearts player who got a bad injury that ended his football career. He then went on to play rugby for Scotland. Can anyone name him?
i think i know but i don't know his name.
does he have fair hair and is on TV now and again as a presenter?
in the same grand slam team as david sole etc?
begins with a j... john somebodyorother...
I think it is a bit further back than that...
