Re: Battle of the Celts: Ireland v Scotland, Sat Dec 5th, KO @ 2:15pm

I remember we could just never beat them, home or away. We always got tonked over there and lossed narrowly to them at home. Their team under Telfer was very clever. Always offside and brilliant at slowing down ruck ball Equally ruthless at speeding up their own. Joy to watch when not on receiving ...

Static first receivers because we are afraid of taking contact in the ten channel.

We would be better off against teams likely to have us up front, playing a ten whose instincts are to run. Setpieces are not our friend.

Tackle drill for England. Not seeing ANY progress from us. Knew scrum would be under pressure (feck help us when we replace the frontrow), but w/out a lineout, the margin could be epic.
