Typical f**king woman - imagine getting married during the season when your brother is a pro rugby player - selfish cow.

BTW your stalking of the players is getting a wee bit creepy.

According to my calculations (yes I am bored) 29.8k tickets sold for the Toulouse game.

Must be 30k plus as that does not include standing.

The only positive I can take from that game is that I only watched the last 10 minutes of it live.

We appear to have fixed our inability to score tries (or at least partially) but now our set pieces and defence (which used to be our strength) are broken.

Murray won't play another international. The scrum at the end where we were tamely shunted off our own ball was just shameful. The lack of prop replacements is really worrying though. What's happened to Low?

It would be nice if AR would pick Scott to start v Italy, but he won't. De Luca will be picked at 13, Evans at 14, and I predict Italy by 5.

Regardless of the fact Earls made a meal of it, Evans should be dropped for the stupidity of his actions. There was no way Earl was getting there, so let him go. But Evans has no rugby brain so why would he think of that.

Can't be arsed talking about that, apart from hoping the various injured players are OK.

Worst peformance of the 6N. All the usual shite, except in spades. A couple of decent drives early on, then it was side-to-side, get manshamed by Ferris, ended with knock on or turnover. Kicking from hand was woeful. Restarts a f**king joke, ours and theirs. Scrum was ATF, though I think that replacing Kellock is more urgent than Murray. Back three have no idea about defence. Back 7 have little idea about defence. Front row was outplayed, back row were second best by some way. At one point we had a 6 playing 8, an 8 playing 6, and a 7 playing 6.

Number one priority for me is to shore up the defence, that was pretty shocking today.

Apols for crassness of quoting myself, but oh dearie me. I thought you'd have our measure up front. Not sure whether to be annoyed with my lack of belief in my team or to just ponder where the hell Scotland go from here?

There were precious few positives for Andy Robinson out of that eighty.

T fecking CUP, simple decisions as certain times are killing us.

KW touched on it at half time, but at 10-6, 2 set pieces, 2 penalties, you have the ref on the other teams back, and he has told them the next infringement is a yellow, do you keep the pressure on them, another line out, drill it out, force a score or a YC, er no, take the penalty kick and lose the fecking momentum with the ref, why

you've just scored, 14 takes the mark, does he take the punt, or tap and pass it back 10 meters, and put pressure on the receiver to kick, okay, he wants a better angle, but its un-necessary pressure, why.

there are some players with numerous caps out there, but they are playing as young heads on old shoulders imho

I agree Murray is a busted flush now - but the scrum really went to shit when Hamilton went off.

Low is injured.

The performance today summed up our main problem - our players make stupid decisions when under pressure - simple as that.

If it wasn't for all our injuries that useless brainless plum Lamont should never play another match for us - 2 tries he was responsible for, the first he was awol as they came round his wing and the second was a disgrace, the plum should have been YCd.

I agree with you - unforced errors have been our Achilles heel for many years now. It's so frustrating - our players can do the basics properly for their clubs but seem to panic in a Scotland shirt. I suppose part of it is that a losing run is bad for confidence, and underconfident players will make bad decisions. What on earth do we do about it? Well, we have a new defensive coach (who nobody seems to rate, but hey ho). Clearly we need a new attack coach too. I feel sorry for AR (crap selections and all). We are actually playing better rugby than a year or two ago, but the results are the same as ever.

Haven't watched the game back yet, but amongst the ruins of our poorest performance of the championship so far how will the players react from here? Ireland were the superior team, but without BOD and POC I feel they had it too easy. The brainfarts in defence were laughable, the second try particularly galling when you see the replay of Lamont trying to shoulder charge reddan onto touch. Laidlaw and Jones have brought the attacking threat we long for but are now targeted for their weaker defence, I'd like to see it again but I feel Jones should have stopped their third.

And the scrum...I knew it would be tough for us bit we're really getting f**ked at the moment. Jacobsen needs, needs some competition. Murray is past it too. Give Welsh a go v the eye ties.

Why sub Laidlaw? Looked to me like he was doing ok, and jackson was utter mince, shite kicks and hospital passes that cost us. To those who questioned his selection ahead of Weir, well called. Morisson did well to snuff out there try but I counted a couple of occasions on the first half when I was screaming for him to move the ball out, and what does he do.

The ref. Thought he was ok, and don't want to dwell on dives or particular moments, but I feel he should have carded the Irish for the continual pens. He warned them in the first half, then warned them again in the second. wtf is that, last I checked a warning followed by another pen infringement is followed by a yellow.

Ah well, probably wouldn't have made any difference cos we were shite and deserved a beating. Uncomfortable feeling about Rome now. Defeat there and we can probably say bye bye to the precious 8th ranking position.

On the plus side. Richie's try was awesome (Get it right up ye Kearney), Denton carried well, Ford too but not enough. Good to see Scott get on too. Might we see him again in Rome?

I got an e-mail from them saying that because the east and lower north and south were sold out they were opening up the upper north and south and corners. No mention of the west at all.

Jones will be released from hospital later today. NDL injured his hamstring before the match, no update on that yet.

Jrp, how would this be for Edinburgh fans. Robbo out, Bradley to Scotland, Lineen to Edinburgh! :lol:

At least Matt Taylor is joining Townsend at Glasgow so at least it's not all bad. Maybe they could get Beattie Jnr back to his best.

Jones update from the IT :

Jones remains in hospital

Rugby: Scotland wing Lee Jones is making "good progress" following the head injury which forced him from the field in last night's 32-14 Six Nations loss to Ireland, team doctor James Robson has said. The 23-year-old Edinburgh back, who was winning his fourth cap, was taken off following a sickening clash of heads with opposite number Andrew Trimble.

The incident occurred during the 62nd minute when Ireland scrambled furiously inside their own 22, with Jones collapsing instantly from the collision before receiving prompt medical attention. Scotland team doctor Robson said on scotlandrugbyteam.org: "Lee took a blow to the head which resulted in a severe concussion.

"He remained in St Vincent's Hospital, Dublin, overnight in the care of consultant John Ryan. He has made good progress overnight and will stay in hospital this morning until the consultant is happy for him to be released. He is scheduled to travel back to Scotland tomorrow.

"We would like to thank John and his team for the expert help given to us."

Jones is now likely to be a major doubt as Scotland travel to Italy next weekend seeking to end a run of six successive Test losses to avoid the wooden spoon. The Scotland squad are scheduled to return to Edinburgh this afternoon to begin preparations for Rome, with four other players set to require further medical attention.

Scotland head coach Andy Robinson is scheduled to name his team for the Italy clash on Wednesday.

It's tough isn't it. I've never particularly liked the style he has played and I think he has mishandled a few players, but he has over achieved in my opinion. I've no inside line at all though.

My glum face is just about Scottish rugby.
