The new weekly round up for all things London Scottish gets off to an exciting start, jam-packed with additions to the Exiles squad ahead of the upcoming Championship campaign. James Rhys Baylis reports.
The scoreline above does not really do justice to what was a vastly improved performance by the Scotland team who could quite possibly (but not easily) have won this game. In the end, England’s wings showed a little more confidence on the ball than the players inside – who handed over a glut of possession to Scotland (some of which was handed straight back) – and finished a couple of simple tries to put the gloss on the score.
I went along to the Scotland vs Ireland U20 international last night at Caledonian Stadium in Inverness. Despite sunny patches throughout the day, the weather really turned on the crowd and what was blustery at the start turned into a bit of a downpour just before halftime that sent the crowd scurrying for cover and flattened the atmosphere considerably.
