Scotland Team announced to play England, hopefully whilst facing in the right direction

No Scott Murray, but Stroker deservedly keeps his place. Interesting choices in the centres too. The shape of the bench suggests Hadden’s not expecting a festival of running rugby and means several players drop right out, including all our specialist open-sides. Good to see Rory Lawson get a shout though.

H Southwell
R Lamont
S Webster
G Morrison
N Walker
C Paterson
M Blair (captain)
A Jacobsen
R Ford
E Murray
N Hines
S MacLeod
A Strokosch
S Taylor
A Hogg

Substitutes: F Thomson, A Dickinson, C Smith, J White, K Brown, R Lawson, D Parks.

The referee is Jonathan Kaplan, who almost screwed us out of the World Cup, and Mr Damasco the touch judge has already “distinguished” himself in the TMO box once this tournament. Oh deary deary me?

    In bocca al lupo! (erm, sorry, I don’t know what should be the sport-wise equivalent of it in English… I really, really, REALLY hope Scotland wins this one, though. :))

    p.s.: anybody coming to Rome for Italy vs. Scotland? I’ll be the one in Curva Nord not being able to decide which team to support, therefore hysterically cheering whichever of the two scores. :)
