Not a day for precise kicks to the corner yet Hogg still trying.    Erse.

Far too many errors. Even taking into consideration the conditions it's been a poor show.

Awful game. Scotland making lots of handling errors, terrible line out, losing at Breakdown 

 

but it’s still only 0-3, ironically Jones might be the more miffed manager at half time because England haven’t used their penalty count etc to get more points 

 

we’ll now be playing against the wind though

Referee suffered temporary blindness with 2 of those turnovers.   We've had that before.

This is probably the worst game of international rugby I’ve ever seen. The conditions are brutal. 
 

England with the wind behind them now, I expect to see the gap widen quite a bit now.

Awful stuff to watch but if we can tighten up and reduce the errors (unlikely) then we are well in this

England don't look like they fancy it so far 2nd half. Scotland have started well.

Ref has missed a few. That should have been a probably crucial penalty to Scotland.

Dithered on an England  kick under his own posts and then only JUST got the ball grounded for a 5M scrum. England grounded but no try.

That’s that then. We didn’t use our territorial advantage or take benefit from

the constant kicking out on the full by England. Who knows we might as well just go for it now, Play with a bit of freedom , feck the losing BP.

No.  Two scores were needed anyway + 3 points got the bonus point.   Kick for goal was correct.

I'm no big rugby hand, my recollection is that prior to Cotter we couldn't break line or score and under him that changed ,we also reduced handling errors etc it seems since Townsend came in we've regressed back to pre Cotter days. It's very frustrating to watch

Summary.   Referee did Scotland no favours but England deserved the win,   purely based on their good primary possession plays.    Score was pretty much spot on.

Im kinda here. Hogg has just been awful for Scotland for a long time. And Townsend is to rugby what Terry Butcher is to management of Edinburgh SPFL teams.

Aye. Diving incident where Nigel Owens ripped him. Getting sent off in Cardiff early doors. Two butter fingers moments in two weeks that cost us two games. Yet captain. :rolleyes:

The conditions were dire.

 

But the number of Scotland errors decided the game. 

 

So much the same.

Terrible game of Rugby. No one deserved to win it. I know conditions were awful but so was most of the rugby played by both teams, especially the Victor's. Eddie Jones is a twat.

Unless Hastings and Price are replaced, then we face losing the next 3 games. They offer no leadership or structure from the most vital positions on the field, and constantly make wrong decisions. Price in particular is tactically clueless and prone to running up blind alleys, leaving the rest of the team desperately trying to understand where he is going. As a result, he is prone to turnovers and conceding penalties.

 

There are mitigating factors

 

1) Townsend is a horrific coach and constantly picks the wrong team and plays the wrong tactics.

2) Referee was unbelievable bad and downright ignorant of the laws of the games. Blatant cheating.

3) Townsend is a horrific coach and constantly picks the wrong team and plays the wrong tactics.

4) Conditions were awful, just ****ing awful.

5) Townsend is a horrific coach and constantly picks the wrong team and plays the wrong tactics.

We would have won if we had won our lineouts.

 

8 lost, 4 in each half.

Yes and yes.

 

We are right up there in terms of world class rolling maul, but 5 metre attacking lineout and as likely to eff it up.

 

Hookers great in loose but awful or is good, at (lineout) chucking it.

I broadly agree but who's better? (as a FB pick - anyone would be better as captain).

 

The butter fingers today, I understand. It looked as though the ball would bobble itself over the line, giving us a 22 drop out. I don't know what else he could have done that would have rescued the situation.

 

But, ultimately, he's a Billy Big Boots who's come to believe the hype about himself.

He's definitely was a Billy big baws. I've seen it and heard about it (do you know who I am chat to bouncers outside clubs etc) but he's probably calmed down a bit as he has gotten older tbf.

 

Still, it is always about him, rather than team first. He tried to showboat that try v Ireland and made a complete arse of it. I'm sure he dropped one v England in last years 6 nations to win the game. Even at England's first penalty, he gave it away. He's a great kicker and he's fast but his handling is far too casual. There was a time when he looked like he could be one of the best Fly Half's in the World but those days look long gone. 

 

I'd have Hamish Watson as captain tbh. Leads by example, brave as a lion. Before that, I thought Stuart McInally was a great leader. No idea why he's been dropped for Frazer Brown who's line outs are shocking. Mind you, he bombed out our best player and possible captain for his mates laddie. Our pool is too small to be binning our best players. 

 

I can only think Townsend makes these decision because he's a complete arse and a control freak. A total yes man and arse licker to the head honchos at SRU. How he was still in the job before the World Cup is bewildering, when he's been an utter failure as coach over three 6 Nations and one world cup.

Agree on Watson and McInally. Either would be a better captain. 

 

On a different matter, I know he's a prop and so the bar is low but Ellis Genge is a special type of dumb, isn't he?

Very disappointed to read that a "Scotland" fan threw a bottle of some kind that hit one of the English support team on the head.

Ned behaviour and totally unnecessary, although not indicative of the general atmosphere at Six Nations games
