    The teams are listed below. Both sides are going full strength when taking injuries into account. The biggest surprise from Scotland is benching Laidlaw who's been fairly ****e lately.

    Paddy Power have Wales as 4 point favourites, I'd expect them to fairly comfortably cover that spread.

    The best result for Ireland is obviously a Scottish victory. If Wales come away with nothing and Ireland get 5 tomorrow, we'll be in the driving seat to at least come second with a 2 point lead in the table.

    Wales by 7 for me today though.

    This has the capacity to be a good game but it's been a relatively dour six nations so my expectations aren't particularly high.

    I don't think Scotland have enough fire power for an amped up Wales and expect Wales to win by a score or more. If Scotland keep the ball alive through a few counter attacks there may be an avenue into the game as things break up but Wales are a fit and mobile squad and won't gift much.

    Really hope Scotland pull a rabbit out of the hat, but the Welsh selection is so much stronger that I expect Wales to dominate possession and territory and could have the match won with 20 to go and looking for the bonus point by then.

    Andy Nicol is such a shítehawk, Inverdale asks a genuine question on if Gray is missing something from hitting top gear.
    Nicol waffles around about 50 caps today and what not.
    That's the problem with Scotland too many players stuck there on reputation.

    Come on Scotland!

    Should be an interesting game. Scotland are capable of a big performance at home and Wales haven’t been great, England game aside. Wales have to be clear favourites so it’ll be an indication of their ability to do the slam if they can deliver today.

    If Scotland are ahead at 60 they'll be delighted to bring Laidlaw on, chasing the game, not so much.

    Defensive line again a farce, Bradbury was almost halfway up the ruck when he charged forward.

    Lol, the woman in the yellow jacket with a full bottle of wine on the wall in front of her.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,128 ✭✭✭ mangobob


    The Scots look up for this. Kinghorn seems to have an aversion to passing the ball.

    Let's play a game of 'How many times Wales will be offside and not be penalised by the officials'

    Two probable forward passes there


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,128 ✭✭✭ mangobob


    Thats class. Questionable defence but a great try.

    Also some awful work from Scotland to push across. You can’t give Wales so much in terms of space and numbers.


  • Registered Users Posts: 588 ✭✭✭ baas baa


    Poor from Kinghorn, Adams didn't even fend him off.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,373 ✭✭✭✭ molloyjh


    AWJ is some workhorse. How many rucks has he already hit!?


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,254 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Scotland's injury problems are ridiculous. At its worst there were missing 20 players. They get some back this week and now they've had to sub off a replacement.

    Where’s the TMO when needed? Final pass looked kinda dubious.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,254 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Seymour off injured.

    Scotland have no luck.


  • Registered Users Posts: 515 ✭✭✭ mogwai81


    Both teams are playing some really exciting rugby!

    Would never have been called up, there's a very high bar for overruling a pass called good.

    Scotland taking three points earlier was dumb. Now they're in big trouble.


  • Registered Users Posts: 515 ✭✭✭ mogwai81


    Wales looking good for a bonus point here.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,525 kilns


    How bad are Scotland here, a couple of phases and wales will score every time


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,144 ✭✭✭✭ Akrasia


    Scotland making it look easy for Wales


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,724 ✭✭✭ nice_guy80


    Both passes the hands went forward with the ball

    Wales, turning on the power now


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,128 ✭✭✭ mangobob


    That had an air of inevitability about it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,433 ✭✭✭✭ thomond2006


    Kinghorn gone off now. Scotland's back three is cursed.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,314 ✭✭✭ Dave_The_Sheep


    Scotland are so passive in defense.

    Blair Kinghorn off injured now too.

    Pack it in lads. It's not your year.
