1872 Cup decider: Glasgow v Edinburgh 6th May 2017

Post by TheMildlyFranticLlama on Tue 2 May - 0:02

First topic message reminder :

Date: Saturday 6th May
Time: 17:15
Where: Scotstoun Stadium

Unwilling participant: Edinburgh 'Rugby'
Slightly more willing, but frankly still underachieving participant: Glasgow Warriors

Things to play for: 1872 Cup, bragging rights, ability to walk around in public feeling like you can refer to yourself as a rugby player (Edinburgh specific)

Things to look out for (aka the Unicorn awards): a pair of Edinburgh players successfully transferring the ball from one to the other through the medium of 'a completed pass', Duncan Weir looking and playing like a fly half, Edinburgh managing to win 2 matches in a row, a hygienic looking Glasgow fan



I fear my thread may be more towards the FES end of the scale than the GC end. Apologies. Now, discuss.

That's got to be one of the worst backlines in the Pro 12.

Why do we have a hooker as back row sub??

Just one point to make: I considered drawing up a composite side until I saw the line ups.picard I don't think there's anyone in the Exiliaotors who could scrape into the real rugby team. Toolis/Cummings is debatable. But only for politeness' sake.

Another point: apart from Nick Grigg's On Fire and Sila Puafisi all the others are Scottish. Is the next Scotland coach making some kind of subtle, subliminal point here?Hero
Yet another point: who is this Schizoid person who speaks so calmly and wisely? he reminds me of someone; I'm sure if you re-arrange the letters in his final sentence it says, "I love the smell of napalm in the morning. It reminds me of....Govan." oh yeah

That's a bit extreme, surely Hardie is a far superior player to Fusaro and a few other Edinburgh forwards are probably equal at least to their Glasgow rivals. The backs on the other hand...

A sensible combined 15 would have Toolis, Hardie and CDP in it but that's it.

Ah right y'are Ted, Hardie is there. I couldn't see him. Drowning as he is in a sea of mediocrity. For the ten minutes he will be on he will tackle everything that moves (so Meatball should be safe) until he knocks himself out and leaves for his pre-scheduled HIA.

Sensible? You want sensible? Are you trying to scare Schiz off again?

Toolis... I did mention.

Hardie... see my comment above.

CDP...GTF , on his form this season if he stood behind yon Kardashian lassie you wouldn't be able to tell where one giant arse ended and the other began. Erm

I think you will find that Nick Grigg is SQ - both grandparent rule and playing for national 7's team. OK, source is Wiki, but I don't think they are wrong.

I think you are correct, Demosthenes, which further reinforces my point that the Toonmeister is, possibly, using the match to signal his intent as Scotland coach.

That will be why Edinburgh are 30 odd points behind us in the Pro12 I suppose. Well done clap

aww for crying out loud!!!!

It's bad enough that we've had our worst ever season and now to make matters worse, the schiz is back to rub our noses in it!

He's more one eyed about Glasgow than some of the Welsh are about Wales!

Isn't the second coming of Schiz one of the signs of the apocalypse?
Isn't another sign Jimbo actually managing to use the quote function for once?

Oh well, Welcome back Schiz, I'm off to grab a bible..............

Well here goes - if we can put in a reasonable performance and keep it within 20 points I think that's the best we can hope for!

Adamson has had a very poor first half and it's amazing Edinburgh are ahead. I'm sure the great unwashed will disagree though!

Huge effort from Edinburgh and I suspect they won't be able to keep it up - they'll certainly be very frustrated with some of the ref interpretation.

This wind is worth 10 points at least, expect a different second half with very different benches to come on.
