Volvo for sale"

true story!

I heard it before too but I love it so much that I just don't care.

Me too. Love that joke.

My Mum's family are from Insch, near Inverurie. I genuinely don't understand a single word of doric.

Scottish accents are a funny thing - I have a friend from Invergordon (north of Inverness) and he has a very mellow accent that could easily pass as a native Edinburger, as does all of his friends from home that I have met. I would have expected them to be hard to understand but apparently not!

I'm good man, just barely coping with the pressures of being a dad. It's hard to meaningfully contritribite when you have a wee girl demanding you make monkey noises at her and chase her all over the house.

It's been pretty stressful lol

Ah Radge - no time no hear from.

These are the joys of daddyhood. Mine is 4 now and has taken to doing 'Japanese schoolgirl in London on a tourist trip 'V' signs' in photographs now when we ask her to smile. It started off being hilarious. Now she won't stop doing it.

Making monkey noises and chasing someone all over the place?

With those skills you could play in the Edinburgh back line!

Nick McLennan and Dougie Fife have signed fulltime contracts with the 7s squad.

Good to see that Fife isn't lost to the professional game, and also good to see that the SRU have increased the 7s funding given this time last year it was almost scrapped.

George Turner (Edinburgh hooker) is away to London Scottish on loan. No idea for how long, but the story says "short term"

Also, Glasgow are wanting a tram from the Poopie centre to their "airport"

After all the laughing at our trams, they're going to copy us again anyway

I missed this back in July but sound like Jerry retired rather than not being after a new contract.

It would be a shame to spoil such a beautiful City with a tramline. Ho hum.

Jerry Y was a useful and popular player in his 3 years at Glasgow. He was only ever a squad player, probably at best third choice in his position but always gave 100% whenever he played and was a fans favourite because of that.

All Glasgow fans will wish him well in this new phase of his career and it is nice to see forward thinking from professional sportsmen.

God, depressing weekend for club rugby. Neither side is looking all that great. 

I see that Visser scored in 3 minutes for Quins against Bath last night - turned out to be a crucial try in the end.

Edinburgh seem to be able to raise their game against (in theory) the bigger teams such as Ulster & Harlequins but against the (again in theory) small teams like Zebre & Dragons we struggle.

Some of the play from Edinburgh yesterday was shocking.  The maul that never was, was a particular low light.

For anyone interested the thistle podcast is still excelling.  They were saying they can’t wait till Burleigh qualifies for Scotland so he can cover 10, this is obviously ignoring he is terrible (or maybe just poor) at 10.  Very good 12, not a 10.  They were also saying that Scotland lack depth in the front row, whilst they were bigging up how well Fagerson (2nd choice TH) and Dell (3rd/4th choice loosehead) did against two pretty strong front rows in Argentina and Georgia.  I get we could have more depth, but when you consider that players to come back are Dickinson, Sutherland and if he ever regains anything like the form he showed to get in the lions squad, Ryan Grant, plus obviously Dell.  At TH things are a bit worse but we have Nel and Fagerson.  After that the quality does drop quite a bit with Moray Low, but I’m not sure any nation in the world has an abundance of THs and Low does a job, not always a great job, but he’s there.  Then if you consider that Berghan might be decent, if he can get fit and get some game time, I know these are big if’s but when he played last season he looked more than capable, so fingers crossed he can get and stay fit to provide a backup to Nel for Edinburgh.

I do find myself asking why I still listen to it, but I think I’ve worked it out.  It’s like a morbid fascination, same way people stare at car accidents, I listen to hear what nonsense they come up with next.

On a different topic, Dell/Sutherland: Edinburgh have Scotland’s 1st, 2nd & 3rd Looseheads currently.  From a selfish point of view this is great and we have real depth, but from a Scotland point of view, would it be worth loaning Glasgow one of either Dell or Sutherland so they get some more gametime?  I know Glasgow have Allan and Grant at LH, but considering they’ve both been consigned to a bench spot for Scotland in favour of Dell for example, who has been a bit part player at Edinburgh, does suggest that Vern doesn’t rate them.  I think Dell would suit Glasgow’s style of play given he’s pretty dynamic in open play.  Plus Edinburgh have young Cosgrove coming through who has seemed capable enough to cover when required.  I get my argument is let down slightly at the moment given both Dickinson and Sutherland are injured, and yes during international windows we are going to be weakened given we’re likely to be without both Dickinson and Sutherland, but if we want to actually create depth of positions for the national team then it seems like a sensible option to have our best 3 players in a position playing fairly regularly.

I'd throw Murray McCallum's name in as one to watch in the future - he 'did a Nel' and played 80 minutes yesterday, held his own in the scrums and is a big lump that carries well.  Given that no one had heard of him at the start of the season, and that he's technically a loosehead, he has done well.

He is very, very raw though and still very young. It is amazing how injuries play their part in the emergence of players - if Nel, Berghan and even Bryce weren't injured he would probably have been no where near the Edinburgh team this season, maybe even next season.

I think the way some of the youngsters have shown up this season shows the need for a 3rd team. While you could argue London Scottish are filling that role just now I am not convinced

Aye I left him out as he’s pretty new/raw and also just switched to TH and I figured folk would shoot me down if I included him. But seeing how you’ve mentioned it and your name is all green and shiny I’m jumping on the bandwagon. Smile

Also I don't think Byrce is going to cut it. I know it's early days, but he's 28 moving to a very technical position and not one he was particularly keen to move to. At best he'll be an average club player, but I can't see him getting any better than that.

I think given the SRU are already saying they're struggling to compete financially with 2 teams I can't see a 3rd happening any time soon unless someone steps in and helps fund.

Plus if the SRU are less well off then I think we're going to see more and more of our better players moving on to Aviva and T14 sides, which will create space for the young lads coming through.

Told you guys that McCallum would hold his own for Edinburgh. Each time I've seen him play I've been impressed on how he isn't phased by this level of pro rugby!

He looks strong and he's got a desire about him. He wants to get involved in the physical stuff and doesn't look scared to front up to the opposition!

I'm not saying he's the next Oz Du Rand but I don't think he's the next Kyle Traynor either!

There's got to be some sort of prize for getting Du Randt and Traynor into the same sentence!!

Anyone on here done the West Highland way (or part of it)? Trying to organise a trip for myself and a few family members around Easter next year, and keen to get some views on it.

My parents did it a couple of years ago, and I've encountered bits of it doing various other walks (mainly around the Loch Lomond part of it, but also Glen Coe). It is harder than most people expect, but is also very rewarding. Be prepared for wet weather - it's been known to rain on the West of Scotland from time to time - and the closer you are to summer the more likely you are to encounter the odd midge....you won't hang about when they are on the move.

Seriously though, my rentals thoroughly enjoyed it, albeit my Dad (he was 62 when he completed it) moaned about his legs being stiff for about three weeks after it!

I'll bet someone like IrnBru will probably have more knowledge about this. I haven't actually done it.

I've done various sections of it, but not the whole route.

Get the weather, and it can be wonderful. If not, it can be purgatory, if not hell!

I assume that you will be staying at hotel / B&B's each night, rather than wild camping? If so, you may find they are pretty well booked.

Best advise I could offer would be to have a look at the Walkhighlands website, and ask advise there. It also has route descriptions, reports, comments, and suggestions. Link is here : http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/west-highland-way.shtml

Huw Jones is staying in SA according to his agent

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/38137115

He could of course just be making noises to increase his client's value!

I always find agents talk a load of tosh!

I also think that Jones is fine where he is! Let him develop further! He's goosed for the next 8 weeks so him moving or not wouldn't effect the amount of rugby he'd play before the 6Ns.

Give him another season playing in the SH then he can move to the UK/France in Jan 18

He probably saw the state of the pitch at Rodney parade and made up his mind pretty quickly.

Does anyone have a link to that video of Mike Brown getting the ball kicked into his face after butchering that try scoring chance against Argentina, I could watch that all day.

I'm posting that here through fear of violent reprisals in the normal forum.

More positive news from the SRU on the commercial side of things

Scottish Rugby has signed one of the biggest contracts in the UK stadia sector which will see leading caterer Elior UK continue to provide first-rate corporate hospitality, conference and event and matchday catering at BT Murrayfield.

Elior UK has been awarded a ten-year contract extension by Scottish Rugby following a rigorous tender process.

The extension continues a successful seven year relationship in which Elior has assisted Scottish Rugby in substantially growing its commercial income.

The new agreement will deliver a seven figure sum, annually, to Scottish Rugby and see Elior’s existing operating brand, ‘Murrayfield Experience’, evolve and rebrand as ‘Scottish Rugby Hospitality’.

Andrew Healy, Finance Director at Scottish Rugby said: “Scottish Rugby wants every visitor at BT Murrayfield to have a great experience, especially on matchdays. We are therefore delighted to continue working with Elior to enable us to deliver a high quality hospitality offer together with a wide range of food and drink for our supporters at matches.

“As a Governing Body we need to look to maximise all our revenue streams to ensure money can be reinvested back into the sport and this significant long-term deal assists us in doing that.”

“The stadium also offers first class facilities for conferences, meetings, weddings, dinners, lunches and other events on non-matchdays, and we are again delighted that Elior will be working with us to offer these to an ever wider audience.

Catherine Roe, chief executive of Elior UK, said: “For seven years, Elior has been proud to serve the home of Scottish rugby by promoting quality local produce, providing exceptional customer experiences and growing Scottish Rugby’s commercial income.

"This new contract and investment gives us the opportunity to turn those strides into leaps and create memorable experiences for conference delegates, entertainment guests and rugby supporters for years to come.”

Elior will continue to offer cooking skills to Scottish Rugby academy players and support Scottish Rugby’s nominated charities in fundraising activities throughout the year.

Stronmagachan stovies, Argyll smoked salmon, Tomintoul venison and pork from the Dourie Farm in Newton Stewart have all appeared on BT Murrayfield menus during Elior’s tenure and the new offer will retain this strong focus on local, seasonal Scottish ingredients.

In addition, investment made by Elior will be used to develop the stadium’s hospitality and conference suites; creating enhanced modern facilities and providing innovative corporate matchday entertainment. Elior will also support the setup of new bar facilities around the stadium and implement new technology to simplify operations and improve the ongoing customer experience.

About Elior
Elior operates high profile catering contracts across the B&I, health & care home, defence, education, stadia and heritage sectors. It provides customers with a bespoke offer that focuses on great food, drink and customer service and couples it with the benefits that a large company brings. Elior UK is part of Elior Group which operates worldwide with annual revenues of €5,674 million.

Never mind Edinburgh or Glasgow, I hear there's a new coach at Montpellier next season who might fancy signing him..

I think Vern will take a few with him. Presume some of White's saffer contingent will follow him out, so maybe we'll see players like Hardie, Nel and some of the Glasgow backs head south for some sun.

I was going to comment on the Bonus Points in the 6 Nations thread, but then the Welsh came in and ruined it for everyone ;-). So I will post here. I think it's a good thing for Scotland.

The Welsh are unhappy because

A) They're not scoring many tries these days
B) Their defense is leakier than their national emblem

For those of you that did not see it:

Scotland were leading and time was dead, they won a penalty and forgot that you can't kick it straight out in sevens. That rattled them and they then lost the lineout, England got possession and scored. A slightly fortuitous victory.

All they had to do was pass it then kick it out, even if they had knocked the pass on it would have been time!

It has not been our weekend

It certainly has not. Thanks for BeeGee for the commentary.

In other news I was having a look over the table and Glasgow are in real danger of finishing outside the top 6
