Scotland Team for Ireland

Scotland Team to face Ireland: Southwell, Lamont, De Luca, Morrison, Evans, Parks, Cusiter, Jacobsen, Ford, Murray, Hamilton, Kellock, Brown, Barclay, Beattie
Replacements: Lawson, Dickinson, Gray, MacDonald, Blair, Godman, Danielli

Rory Lawson and Nathan Hines will count themselves unlucky, although Hines is ruled out through injury. Still, I would have liked to see a bit more inspiration on the bench given the difference between a wooden spoon and second bottom is negligible to us as a nation with plenty oak in the cutlery drawer but the difference to younger or non-regular players (Gray, Jackson, Cairns) between having played a bit in the 6N and not having played could be considerable in their development… Hope you all enjoy the game, I am fortunate enough to be winging my way there at the weekend and seeing what Croke Park and Dublin have to offer.

Oh, and exiled Number 8 and former Lion Simon Taylor has signed for Bath, who now have two Scots on the books following the news of Mark McMillan’s move there next season.

    All the best to Scotland,it’s gonna be real tough.Ireland played damn well last week,but with a bit of luck,you never know.SCOTLAND DESERVES ONE VICTORY regarding the whole of the tournament.

    PS I was very disappointed with the game versus Italy (it was back to the same stereotyped and barren play,but versus England,well done (but no luck)

    I didn’t know that expression in English “plenty of oak in the cutlery drawer”
    I think a spoon is OK to eat spaghetti…
