Yours to lose. Have you many out? People rave about Hogg and Russel, but I would love you to drop Watson - he's shit hot, and the Redpath lad is tasty too.

I have not seen any injury reports. There may even be injured players back, but why would you drop any who played at Twickenham?

Scotland has always been able to pull off the odd shock. Building on that has been the issue. We do not carry the tag of favourites easily so we hope that has changed. Townsend went from too off the cuff to too structured, but now seems to have a good medium.

I am quietly optimistic but seen too many lights at the end of the tunnel turn into onrushing trains to get ahead of myself.

Snow forecast for Sunday, but not Saturday. This far out it may change.

Between 1 and minus 1 forecast, and as that has been the temp for weeks this will probably happen.

If the forwards carry on as they are, that backline has to run up a decent score sooner or later.

Russell has been more controlled of late. But if a decent margin opens up, the box of tricks may be opened, and now there is a backline that seems on his wavelength.

None of the Scrum V studio pundits actually predicted a Wales win - they hedged their bets, saying ‘Wales, I hope’ which isn’t very confident, at best.Scotland are favourites. Most of these games are crackers, whoever wins. I predict Scotland, and last week I predicted Ireland. If Scotland, I’d love a Scottish title, slam or not.

As with all these things, it'll come down to the respective packs. On paper, there's not a lot to choose between them. A backrow of Navidi, Tipuric and Faletau is always going to be competitive. It will likely come down to tactics. Touch wood, but it seems Gethin Jenkins has put some steel back into our defence.

Isn't it sweet that you think that is an amazing landscape.

By Welsh standards that may be true, but that is bang average for Scotland.

As for 'anywhere in mid to north Wales', I have been to Rhyl.

If it's not 'amazing' then why have it (it would appear, given that you juxtaposed it with some valley terraces, that you were trying to show how much nicer Scotland is).

Having said that, I'd tend to agree we'd be underdogs in a natural beauty-off, but fudge it, lets go. Sunrise over snowcapped Tryfan.

Genuine question.

There seem to be a lot of pine/spruce/conifer type trees in Scotland. Are they indigenous? I know in large parts of mid wales the natura oaks etc have been relaced by these monstrosities. I know its for commercial reasons.

I just can't see anyway for us to win this. Losing Tomos is a hammer blow as he's a Lion in the making. Our centre combo could be Watkin and North. Our back 3 is 1/2p, Sanjay and pick any random player if LRZ is crocked.

Our FR back-up is bad as it gets. Time to sing those sad songs again :(

Forestry is a big business round here so I know a lot of people involved in it.

If you look at the picture of the island in the loch, virtually all the woods you can see are conifer plantations. Historically, the forest around that loch was beech. There are remnants, but only remnants.

The hill on the right is a good example of the evolution of forests in Scotland. It is one of the first forests actively managed for lumber. In the 17th century management started of it as a mixed beech, oak and Scots Pine forest. This carried on till WW1 when it was felled out. Replanting was done mostly with commercial conifer. Now the original woodland is being gradually regenerated.

As the Highlands, and especially the uplands of the Highlands (you know what I mean) are colder then the south of the UK, the ancient forest that covered most of the Highlands was coniferous, mostly Scots Pine. But there was also significant birch, oak and other hardy species of hardwood. On the warmer west coast, the forests were less coniferous and more oak and other hardwood based.

By the 18th and certainly the 19th century most of the forest was gone. Scotland had a very, very low coverage of trees, and they could not regenerate due the density of sheep and deer which prevented young trees getting a start. Some of the great estates started replanting, but there was no desire to regenerate the native forest. It was a case of commercial forestry which used foreign quick growing species.

Post WW2 was the start of significant incentives for planting forestry, so huge amounts were planted. Again, mostly foreign conifer species.

Over time it was recognised that these slabs of mono cultural forests were a bad idea aesthetically. environmentally, and not least commercially. So a considerable proportion of replanting now is done with mixed native species. It has to be said a lot of timber operators would cheerfully plant whatever would give them the biggest profit, and only plant native due to grants and other support. But a remarkable number of big estates (and an astonishing amount of Scotland is still owned by the big estates) are now held by people who care about the environment and leaving a legacy for the future.

This is a rugby thread, so I'll make one last environmental observation. My wife was born and brought up in the glen where we live. We have had a home here for 30 years. There have been significant efforts in that time to reduce the environmental damage of the past. A result has been that there is a significant and visible increase in native fauna. For example, when I first came here, you would rarely see a red squirrel, now it is a daily occurrence. A lot of other native species have seen similar growth in numbers.

And then of course there are the beavers. They were illegally reduce on the Tay and have worked upstream. I know the riparian owners for almost the entire length of our glen. All bar one are pleased to see the beavers back, and whilst they do damage, landowners are prepared to either just live with that, or take appropriate action (eg protecting specific rare trees). My wife is quite clear that 50 years ago when she was growing up here the beavers would not be tolerated.

You get acidic run off from conifers into the Lochs, which is bad for the fish if I've got it right.
Just saw your other post and yeah will stick to the rugby.

The machinery available to forestry plantations now also means you can harvest individual trees and leave the rest standing, which encourages mixed forest planting.

I was expecting an unchanged Scotland side, and there have been no reports of injuries. Then I was reminded that Ritchie limped off. So possibly a change in the backrow with Graham or Thomson to come in to start with the other on the bench.

They're looking a bit further north for this, but there's also a push to reintroduce the lynx. Awesome.
