Personally I find it outrageous that the Scots have turned up looking to win, whereas our empathetic players are clearly worried about the Coronavirus issues in the world.
It's a disgrace, Jeff. When will World Rugby finally take a stance against this sort of thing?

Well it's a bit late in coming, but they're at least banning games now. You can't be ahit if there's no one to play against. :thumbup:

Surely one of the all-time great bits of driving mauls there, good guys finally trouble the scorers.

So weird how many Scots just hung off the maul after the initial pushback, leaving about 3/4 vs 7/8 for the first 5 meters. :?

Welsh defense leaving the line-out or sweeping from the 9 position absolutely pathetic.

Is Howley your new u20 coach?

And just like that, we carve them open again... after letting them sprint through for another score of their own, of course. We're nothing if not gracious hosts.

Can I ask what the score would likely have been.

Was this the game where the Scots ended their long Cardiff nightmare? Were they robbed?

Lovely bit of individualism from the sweaty 10, borne out of scrappy open play but a lovely score nonetheless.

Bastard.

10-31

edit: Scenes! Welsh hooker outsprints Scots backline to score in corner!

Scotland's management around the ruck area to deal with the rollers getting in the way of arriving players has been much better this half.

Or the Welsh have been worse.

Lovely, lovely score from the Scots: own 22 to fly half strolling in under the posts in less than a minute.

It’s reasonable to assume the game tomorrow would have been much the same, yeah?

Fair play, Scots youngsters: some cracking rugby.

No reach-around, tho. Tight, see?

Some poor d but really is lovely lines and taking advantage of the gaps.

We'd normally be knocking this on.

Can't remember the last time our u20s have genuinely put a team away.

Scotland 18 went in for chop tackle there, guess didn't make enough contact to warrant the call

Congrats on a resounding win, sweaties. Fun to watch... kind of. Could you not have done that against someone else?

How did the Canadian Scot hooker player? Very impressed by him against Ireland.

I generally go to the Wales v Scotland U20 games as I only live 15-20 mins away. This time I was working, and they played behind closed doors anyway. So naturally we pick this game to put 50 on Wales in Wales. FFS.
