    Kicking off at 2PM, live on Virgin 1.

    Scotland: 15-Stuart Hogg, 14-Tommy Seymour, 13-Huw Jones, 12-Sam Johnson, 11-Blair Kinghorn; 10-Finn Russell, 9-Greig Laidlaw; 1-Allan Dell, 2-Stuart McInally, 3-Willem Nel, 4-Ben Toolis, 5-Grant Gilchrist, 6-Sam Skinner, 7-Jamie Ritchie, 8-Ryan Wilson.

    Replacements: 16-Jake Kerr, 17-Jamie Bhatti, 18-Simon Berghan, 19-Gary Graham, 20-Josh Strauss, 21-Ali Price, 22-Adam Hastings, 23-Chris Harris.

    Italy: 15-Jayden Hayward, 14-Angelo Esposito, 13-Luca Morisi, 12-Tommaso Castello, 11-Michele Campagnaro; 10-Tommaso Allan, 9-Tito Tebaldi; 1-Andrea Lovotti, 2-Leonardo Ghiraldini, 3-Simone Ferrari, 4-David Sisi, 5-Dean Budd, 6-Sebastian Negri, 7-Braam Steyn, 8-Sergio Parisse.

    Replacements: 16-Luca Bigi, 17-Cherif Traore, 18-Tiziano Pasquali, 19-Jimmy Tuivaiti, 20-Federico Ruzza, 21-Guglielmo Palazzani, 22-Ian McKinley, 23-Edoardo Padovani.

    I'm expecting a home win but unlike other years they'll be made fight for it a lot harder than they're used to. The Italy 3/4 are capable of a lot of pace and they've been faring better in the Pro 14 as a whole compared to previous seasons. Oh and Finn Russell is playing as well, which is as good as a sixteenth man for them :pac:

    I think we're all too busy watching the most important game of the day:

    Cheetahs Vs Kings.

    I was watching it in Smithfiled; they justly had the big screen up for it.

    Good call to go to upstairs.

    Correct decision.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    That line out was very very crooked. Scotland very fortunate

    La Marseillaise in a full Stade de France beats it hands down

    Nothing beats the Soviet anthem.

    Now played only in my heart.....

    Like if you cried.

    That's a pen against Laidlaw for diving on the ball there


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,065 ✭✭✭ ClanofLams


    Italy always disadvantaged by their level of English, don’t think they had a clue what ref was saying their about ball being out.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,330 ✭✭✭✭ Losty Dublin


    Great work and savvy by the Scottish pack to win that turnover, and ultimately a try.

    They ran an ad just before kick off. Next thing the ad cuts off short as the Italian forwards chase the kick off, ad music still playing in the background.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,160 ✭✭✭ Burkie1203


    Thats a deliberate knock on


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Scottish defensive line offside, particularly the centers.

    Bagpipers playing a blinder, fans just sit and listen though. Bunch of weirdos.

    Should have been a yellow really, Italy had a man on the outside


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Quick line out wasn’t 5. AR missing basics on that side.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,330 ✭✭✭✭ Losty Dublin


    For such a dry day some of the handling errors are scary. Like the one that gave away the scrum that led to the try.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Ah bloody hell italy, from a 2 man overlap to a knock on and a try given away.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,305 ✭✭✭ Dave_The_Sheep


    Forward pass(es) in there surely?


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    Russel pass was forward, should have atleast been checked.

    Italy look borderline hopeless here.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,205 ✭✭✭ typhoony


    Good example of getting your best players on the pitch, kinghorn normally a full-back scoring 2 tries on the wing


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt

    They’re getting no luck from the officials in fairness.
    Very frustrating for COS I’d imagine


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,951 ✭✭✭ munsterlegend


    Italy look out of their depth alright. Could be a big hammering in the second half.

    Italy poor enough without getting completely shafted from this excuse for a referee
