    Ireland have registered a strong win against the Grand Slam Champions in Dublin.

    No better set up for a Scotland v England clash.

    scotland need to come away with points when they get near the england line

    Air of inevitability about this already, England starting to dominate against the wind.

    Oh Scotland

    Also, Itoje got pinged. Amazing

    Another inept French ref.

    Curry in the side of that maul.

    Its going to be a low scoring game this one.

    Scotland had plenty of time to get the ball away after it was clear Curry wasn't being penalised. They are their own worst enemies with their decision making.

    Their ineptitude doesn't excuse the refs ineptitude.

    Fully agree, but react to the threat, get the ball away, keep the attack alive...

    Scotland are playing the conditions terribly


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,749 ✭✭✭ A-Train


    What was Hogg at there.

    Bizarre game. Bit of a circus.

    It's one of the weirder games I have seen. Like we have gone back in time 20 years and kicking is back in fashion

    Their just not playing smart at all.
    Poor decisions and lots of unforced errors.
    Frustrating, cause England can be got at here.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,388 ✭✭✭ Christy42


    Neither side seems to be playing the weather and then both get really surprised when nothing works.

    It’s the poorest game I’ve seen in a good while, littered with errors, some average refereeing again... the conditions no doubt playing a major influence on things though. The English adapting better to the conditions, far less errors, the Scottish play is littered with mistakes.

    Hogg is so poor.

    Wake me up when this is over


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,046 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Huge call to go for the corner


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,753 ✭✭✭✭ bnt


    With those conditions, Scotland needed sustained pressure to win a kickable penalty. Now they need to hang on, it's England's turn to push hard.

    Parvi enim sunt foris arma, nisi est consilium domi.

    7 points would be worth about 20. Diabolical game.

    This is the worst quality game I have seen in years.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,016 ✭✭✭ Bridge93


    What just happened there surely that should’ve been England ball for a crooked lineout?


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Horrendous call from referee. Should have been penalty and possible yellow for Sinckler.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,945 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Why were the Scottish fans so incensed when May kicked the ball out?

    Stupid question I know as they’ve been booing since the 2nd minute.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,046 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Wasn't ripped in the tackle at all, Sinckler ripped that on the ground


  • Hosted Moderators Posts: 6,355 ✭✭✭ fitz


    All the talk about England being championship favourites and likely to get a slam is looking so completely unfounded. I know the conditions are bad, but this is the second week in a row they've looked pretty poor.

    Why are Scots angry is probably one of the most googled questions of all time :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,945 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Give England’s whinging when Italy embarrassed them a few years back, presumably they’ll be pushing for all roof stadiums after this.


  • Hosted Moderators Posts: 6,355 ✭✭✭ fitz


    Great from Hogg.
