Scotland 2017 6N debrief and Lions/Summer Tour lookahead

Post by RDW_Scotland on Mon 20 Mar 2017, 10:02 am

First topic message reminder :

Results

Scotland 27 - Ireland 22 Yahoo
France 22 - Scotland 16  Crying or Very sad
Scotland 29 - Wales 13  Yahoo
England 61 - Scotland 21  Shocked
Scotland 29 - Italy 0  Yahoo

Some stats:

- First time with 3 wins since 2006
- First opening round win and win over Wales in over a decade
- 14 tries scored - our best ever
- Our highest points tally (in 2014 we scored 45 points  Shocked )
- Up to 5th in the World Rankings


Verdict

Bar Twickenham this was a fantastic 6N where we won our games playing great rugby.  It was a huge monkey off our back to beat Wales and the Ireland game was a huge result for us.  The Twickenham game was a complete embarrassment but I'd like to think that was a freak result for this team as opposed to a sign that our wins over Wales and Ireland were 'lucky'.  It should keep the players grounded going forward, which is no bad thing.

All in all I'll give our 6N a 8/10

Lions hopefuls?

Pr - can't see any travelling
H Fraser Brown stands an outside chance, and could be injury cover
L - Jonny or Richie Gray stand a chance in the most competitive position
BR - I don't see any of our backrows going
SH - Laidlaw is down the list in terms of ability at 9 but may be picked as a good tourist/leader for the squad
FH - Finn Russell certainly divides opinion but personally I don't think he will travel
C - Dunbar and Jones are outside bets in what isn't actually a great position of depth for the Lions, but again may find themselves as injury cover
FR - Hogg is a near certainty and I can see another winger getting picked, probably Seymour

My prediction:

J Gray, Hogg, Seymour in the squad, Brown, Laidlaw and Jones as first choice injury cover.

Closer than prior games. Scotland need work on their tight tackling and ruck work. Backs need work at quick passing and running lines excepting the wings who have been solid. Hard to tell as NZ tend to be top of the class at rucking and line speed.

The difference from 5 years ago is that there were maybe 4-5 good players and everyone else was way off the pace. There is an improvement in quality all around the park for Scotland. The fitness is miles ahead and the depth is much improved. The lineout and maul work has been excellent. Scrum has not been completely mullered and has improved as the game has gone on. Next phase is cleaning up some of the kicking that was hit or miss and speeding up the passing. Both are fixable. This team are no pushovers.

Great effort from Scotland - we would have been pumped by that team a few years ago and scored some great tries.

If we can keep everyone fit we stand a good chance of beating Ireland and Italy.

We probably left a bonus point out there in that match. Silly mistakes costing us field position at the wrong times in the game. Our players may be a bit more physically up to the challenge these days, but they certainly have not had the miles on the clock rugby education that these NZ kids have had and when the pressure was on, that showed.

Still not going to be to hard. Our tournament will be defined by the games still to come and if we can tighten up our game for those ones, then we can certainly win some of them.

Kinghorn never looks like he is moving very fast and yet he can clearly shift. He did not have his best game for sure, but that try showed why we need to persevere with him!

He's just so lackadaisical on the pitch and looks like he's playing tough rugby with his mates at times - that often comes with flair players but he really needs concentrate over the full 80 and not float in and out of games.

I imagine that Cockers will be having a word in his ear about that, not really a style that will appeal to him!

I didn't see the Henderson score/Kinghorn break, but prior to that Kinghorn was probably the least effective Scottish player - missed kicks, poor passing and a lack of control. I really hope Edinburgh take better care of him next year, he has really struggled for long stretches this season.

Kinghorn has had a massive season in a terrible Edinburgh side. I think we need to cut him some slack. He's a bright talent in Scottish rugby in a position where we have one great player and very little to back him up. Even the mighty Stuart Hogg was a bit error prone in his earlier days, but what Kinghorn has is that ability to spot space and glide into it. A top speed he can really shift as well - he's deceptively quick.

Interestingly, Italy beat Ireland today, 22-21, with the Irish missing a last minute penalty. This group is wide open, I think.

Yeah, I think Ireland have struggled with injuries this season and we certainly have a shot at beating them.

I wasn't hugely impressed with NZ really, some of their back play was very good but they made a lot of mistakes you wouldn't have expected from any Kiwi team. Anyway, they were still several notches above our lads which shows you how far we have to go.

I'm not a fan of shuggling square pegs... but watching the Scots match today and Edinburgh's games this season, I'm not completely convinced fullback is Kinghorn's best position. He's undoubtedly a talent - quick and tremendously skillful, but I'm not sure he relishes a one on one tackle and his kicking from hand wasn't on point today. I hope I'm wrong, but he's a big lad and I'd love to see him knocking guys to kingdom come.

Question is where does he play? If he's strong in open field running and has good skills, yet is flakey in defence and inconsistent is 10 really any better for him?

Good question. Could he become a roving wing? Coming inside to look for the ball and running his lovely, langid angles? I'm probably talking pish, but I'm just not convinced he's a fullback. On the flipside, he's in the under 20's, he's got plenty of time to nail it.

Also although he is tall he has no meat on him so he's not exactly going to be a physical carrier - he makes Jamie Ritchie look like Arnold Schwarzenegger

He is definitely not a wing even if his hands and kicking were poor today. The tackling will likely improve (Exhibit A of who has done it: Hogg, Stuart and Exibit B of who is his coach: Cockerill, Richard)) as he gets older and fills out. If he can improve his tackling but not his kicking, maybe 13 a la Folau (who is a slightly better player admittedly)? Not got the pace for the wing. Not got the tackling for 12 even if he does improve. Like to keep him at full back until his passing improves.

I'd possibly disagree here, I think we might end up seeing him on the wing. He's deceptively fast, and he's already played for Edinburgh on the wing which may have been influenced by Cockerill.

I'm not saying that's going to be his best position, just that it's possible he might end up there. If he can bulk up a bit and work on his kicking and tackling he's likely to come good at FB, but I wouldn't rule playing on the wing out.

Scotland flying of to Singapore today appartently. That seems very early for a game next weekend, but at least they will have no excuse for not being acclimatised. I am imagining that it will be pretty hot and humid out there.

Or maybe they are flying with BA and are factoring in some time for IT related flight delays and lost baggage.

Still nothing about TV coverage for these games either, which is a little bit of a worry.

A very good result, just very frustrating that the live streaming was not working. Some people seemed to be able to see it via the facebook stream, but that did not work for me either.

Looking forward to the highlights. Another crop of talented kids in this group and it will be interesting to see how they progress.

Yeah I watched it on facebook live. We have a good lineout, great driving maul and real pace and skill out wide. D'Arcy Graham is a special player.

Still did some stupid things and it would have been a comfortable win if our goal kickers weren't absolutely rotten but you can't have everything!

Composure against Italy and just out played by your lads. Some cracking moves from your lads and you always felt that they were going to outscore Ireland no matter what. Was a very good game.

RDW, this D'Arcy Graham fellow looks good. I'm slightly confused; was he with the good guys and recently went over to the Dark Side? Or was he a trainee Luvvie and saw the light and moved west?
I know he has been playing well for the Under-20's but that doesn't mean he's a Glasgow player: he probably hasn't been at Edinburgh long enough for their coaching methods to have stifled his natural flair, yet.

I pray to the good Lord that the "Edinburgh Effect" doesn't ruin him. Graham, Hoyland and Kinghorn is a back three bursting with promise, particularly once we get Bennett back at 13. I'd renew my season ticket to watch that group.

I feel bad saying this but the concern about his size will always be there - of course we've had lots of big, slow wingers and we should be excited about someone with electric pace and skill, but this kid is tiny. There's only so much bulk someone like him can put on and the reality is that you see very few pro wingers of his size.

He's 5ft 9 and under 12 stone.

I really hope I'm proven wrong though - problem for him is that he's got to do it in an Edinburgh team coached by Duncan Hodge! I suspect he'll spend most of next season in the 7s team though.

I hope that Cockerill sees his attacking potential and seeks to harness it. He's pretty close to Shane Williams dimensions and I'm fairly certain a few doubting Daffyd's will have told wee Shane a few times that he's too small to play pro rugby. Jason Robinson was also a very similar size.

Those are legends of the game so I'm not saying Graham will get there, and I do think he could put on a bit more weight (half a stone or so would probably help him rather than hinder), but given the complete festering turds of wingers we've had over the years, slow of thought and foot, I'd be very happy defending Cockerill should he simply slap the 11 jersey on Graham's back and give him a season.

Re: Scotland 2017 6N debrief and Lions/Summer Tour lookahead

Graham really has been the standout at U20 for a couple of years now - concerns about his size are valid, but considering how good he has been up until this point, I am really hopeful he will be able to make the same step up.

The Harries decision still baffles me, perhaps he will be decent enough to provide some go-forward against the lower table teams, but his signing shows very little/no ambition

Unfortunately the highlights didn't show Kinghorn's fantastic galloping break leading up to Graham's 2nd try - I'll try and find it in the full game version unless someone beats me to it.

That break is absolute class from Kinghorn, and Graham can really shift. I really hope Hodge can figure out how to use these guys next season.
