    So where was there sort of rugby from Scottish players in the RWC.

    Missed Edinburgh - racing Metro yesterday but apparently one of thr best games of rugby for a while, Edinburgh go to a 17-3 lead, slip to 20-44 behind before scoring 3 tries in last few minutes and Metro missing a last minute drop goal to give them a 48-47 victory.

    Between that and Ritchie Grey's extra time winner against Bath last
    week, it's been a good week for Scottish Clubs.

    In fact did not most of the Pro12 teams beat their Premier opponents.
     
  2. It's a young squad. Bradley seems to be doing well since taking over. Most of the backs at the WC don't play for Edinburgh and the one (Laidlaw) at the very least that should have been there was overlooked. Get rid of Townsend and Scotland can feed of the buzz around the pro game.

    The fact that there is a new board in charge of the SRU that are putting the Pro teams and fans first has to be taken into account too.

    Nobody, myself included thought we'd be sitting top with 9 pts after starting at Reading. 5 at best.
