Well, classic Scotland, what can I say. Wales spent less than two minutes in the Scotland 22 and score 4 tries.

Well done Wales, well deserved in the end.

Wales still have residual resilience from the Gatland/Edwards years.. and some very good fortune.

Scotland have the makings of a very good side but it'll be feast or famine with Russell and so not sure they will ever reach the consistency in performance they' covet.

I really thought Russell had turned it around and could keep himself under control for a whole game. Played himself into the plane I thought.
Then we get the last ten minutes.

That last kick by Russell with 2m30s to go, in possession inside Wales camp? :shock:

Great game ! :shock:
Was supporting the Scots, but have to admit that a less talented Wales didn't stole it.
Could have gone either way.
We had a nice day of rugby, and 6N is definitively the most enjoyable rugby tournament on earth, be happy all !
Hope an other good one tomorrow...

Russell threw the intercept but recovered to get the penalty. He didn't do too badly.

Scotland would likely have won if not for red. Wales could just defend knowing they had an extra man from that point on.

He's mediocre at international level.
He was generally very good if not great for Scotland but in this 6N, he's been really poor :?
Nah, he's overrated. Horribly overrated.

Do you think players deliberately went out to get a red card? Those hits happen all the time, sometimes the victim may dip his head or change position prior to collision.

In fact a second Scottish player pulled up the Wales player just before contact. Otherwise the clearout would've been on the body.

He did plenty badly. The grubber has worked for him a couple of times for Racing and he thinks he. can get away with it everywhere. I think he turned it over every time he tried it today.

He can play 10 for the Baabaas, not the Lions.

Eh? it would have been an even clearer head contact. And you are still supposed to bind on in a ruck.

Nah, covered at the time. Hogg moved his head up, otherwise the shoulder would've been bang onto his crown. If anything, Hogg was moving him out of the way.

Not running in to clear out from distance might be the way forward. Both reds came from players lining the man up from a long way back, and charging in. If you do that, you do run the risk of the target player moving his head.

He clearly had a shocker and despite that, he produced a moment of magic that very very few players can do (i'm talking about that ridiculous pass to his winger while being on the floor in the last Scottish attack

I think both players are fortunate that his head came up a bit.
Anyway, another case of not taking the points from in front of the posts proves costly.

His missus is from Wales. Do unionist nordies feel superior to the Welsh? Winnie definitely gives off that stink. He loves Scotland though. Strange.
