This. I feel that Nakarawa's presence would be good for the younger guys coming through, especially during the 6N.

Agree re the need for a FB too.

Introduce Izzy to the wee frees and he’d settle pretty quickly.

Gray's contract is also up this summer.

Would like to see him leave Glasgow tbh. Think it's quite safe and comfortable for him up here. I think coaches elsewhere will look to get more out of him in carrying and impact stakes.

The question is, who would want him? He has many strengths, but also some weaknesses. He will be expensive, so why would another club take him on to develop him when there are plenty of other locks who may be less good at some parts of the game but are more rounded and cheaper.

Marfo is off.



Good decision - he had a brief purple patch but is otherwise very much a journeyman. The chances of him getting meaningful game time are low. Great memories of the autumn internationals though - he could have been quite the cult hero had we won that ABs game.

Pity the SRU have already plumped for Danny Wilson now that Scott Robertson is potentially available. It would have been a tough negotiation to get him to Glasgow, but they managed with Dave Rennie. I don't know if he has expressed a desire to leave NZ, but you have to think a stint abroad might be of interest now that he has missed the NZ job?

Razor would be awesome for Glasgow and Scotland in two years, Is that kind of requirement for NZ head coach to get some experience abroad?

Not a bad strike rate, and 4th on the all-time try-scoring list for Scotland. Was there not chat about a bet between him & Hoggy on who would break the record first?

That's what I heard. Seems to have jinxed the whole enterprise :(

Good on him, well played, great career and very consistent performer even if the last few years has seen his strike rate drop.

Let's hope Maitland doesn't retire anytime soon!

We're now with
Kinghorn
Graham
Maitland
+ various Saffer wingers waiting in the wings or nearly qualified

Options growing thin

Matt Sherratt (Ospreys attack coach) off to coach the Warriors.

Worcester Warriors.

So no Scotland appointment after all then.

We shouldn't be appointing anyone until we see how the 6N goes.

If we go 0-5 or 1-4 playing poorly then questions will need to be asked.

Plus there is no rush. Different people may be available on 3-4 months.

Will always remember waking up a bunch of dying people in hospital when touch down Tommy went screaming down the wing and got to a ball he had no right to get to.
Great player for Scotland and even better for Glasgow, I warrant he still has some more to give but will miss him in blue of Scotland.

Na, he lost form when first baby was born but found a purple patch again, certainly for Glasgow.
Perhaps has re-evaluated what important to him in life, but still happy to see him in Glasgow line up.

Had a few games out around then for undisclosed “personal reasons” as well if i remember rightly.

If true it’s one hell of a bit of work (all Bombyrs of course its despite the SRU)

Glasgow are gaining a rep for being a good club even if can’t pay as much, hopefully can use in their favour.

I would say a lot of it is down to the senior players too. Ryan Wilson is godfather to Nakas kids I think - they've created a real family atmosphere at the club.

Just wanted to say (and thought it was better to do so in here) that it's good that we - including Edinburgh01, bokjok, lorthern nights, optimistic jock and others - could have a relatively civilised discussion on the Scottish aspects of the election thread without it turning into a slanging match. Thanks gents.

Agreed mate. We've all got reasons for disliking (or even hating in certain cases) different politicians and policies but that doesn't have to be true for the voter.

👍

Genuinely feel the Scottish electorate has done well to keep it mostly civil over the last seven or eight years in an argument that's potentially far more divisive than brexit. I'll shut up now, don't want to bring it onto this thread.

We are definitely the adults in the room, all the Scottish posters are polite and reasonable in my view.
