Tempting.
at this point those are such good odds :lol:
Obviously I can’t so I backed Ireland at 5/1 but I’d be all over that if I was a neutral.

I hadn’t realised how bad things were down in Wales.

You really need to get a decent 12 and get the likes of Liam Williams on the ball a hell of a lot more.

Feel that Brace has been fairly harsh on the Welsh. Pinging them for being off their feet and not rolling away, but letting the Scots do it.

It actually might be more affective than a 5m lineout, you should be able to get to 2ms from the line and with the new offside laws and latch rules you can pound the lines. It also takes out the risk el...
