Good Luck Chuck

Quick round-up: Scotland U20s were trounced fairly comprehensively by the French, 30-3. The Scotland Club International side lost to their French counterparts by only a point 13-12, so unlucky there guys. No word on the A team score as yet but with Ruaridh Jackson at 10, Cairns as captain the 35-10 scoreline was pretty disappointing (after 14-3 at half time). Lineen on the radio blamed the tries conceded on the breakdown and scrum, so worrying signs there.

Below are some headlines we would like to see come Sunday:

Evans Above
Manna from Evans
French Strokosched Over the Head
Max-Imum Impact
Phil Man-God
Poitrenaud Use Against Rampant Scots

And some we wouldn’t:

Jason White-wash
Scots Left Singing Les Blues on Valentines Day
Have you Haddenough Yet?
Simon Dani-hell’s Bells

Any Editors that want to use any of these for the Sunday papers, you are more than welcome.

All the best to the boys tomorrow. I’m actually less hesitant about our chances than against Wales. We may get beaten if the French play properly and if they play very well then we could be in trouble, but if they don’t show up then we have a definite chance. The Toulouse back line should hold no fear for the Evans brothers in particular, and I hope Mike Blair can have a good game and lead from the front.

Your country is counting on you to restore some pride. Remember the Toony flip? Go for it lads.
