    Were you at the game @Val? - you normally go I think. What was up with some of the crowd starting to give Russell the bird when he put that touch kick long towards end of first half. Yes it wasn't great - but we have come from a pretty bad place in the last couple of years and Russell has been core to that.

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And with just the October medal to go - I've got to 8.3

    I was, Finn always plays with a smile and smirk, some think itís a bit cocky when his game isnít at its best and take issue with it. Itís the way he always has played, laugh it off and say iíll get it next time. Iíd rather our guys did that.

    Weíre in a decent place just now but still a bit short of quality and belief at times but itís coming.

    Yes belief - I think you are right. Against Wales we let it slip too quickly and didn't get anything back - and so it just got worse...and worse and belief just went - as against England last year

    Against the French - bad start but we stemmed the flow and got a few points back reasonably quickly - so belief kept solid. And the game plan changed in the second half - esp when Laidlaw came on. We knew we had to win - playing fancy came #2.

    Funnily enough the only time I am ABE is when the 6 nations are on.
    Mainly due to historical arrogance by England rugby 'fans' and press.

    Funnily enough i reckon thats a complete load of tosh - its quite clear you are firmly anti english all the time and you prove it on a daily basis on here.

    As for England rugby i suspect your point of view to be false but part and parcel of someone with your attitude to all things english.

    Re: Six Nations 2018

    Val.......What do you think of a Price/Laidlaw half back partnership. ?

    Russell seems to have lost the plot for the last two games.
    Trying too hard to impress I think, as they say he should do less better.

    I just caught up with the game having been on hospital duties for a few days.
    Thought Scotland played very well
