66 minutes

Post by RuggerRadge2611 on Wed 05 Jul 2017, 9:15 pm

First topic message reminder :

66 minutes.

That is the amount of test match minutes Scotland has contributed to the Lions test matches in 4 tours

-2005-

3rd (dead rubber) test
Gordon Bulloch 10 minutes

from the bench

-2009-

3rd (dead rubber) test
Ross Ford 43 minutes from the

bench

-2013-
3rd test
Richie Gray 13 minutes from the
bench

-2017-
No test involvement

People honestly wonder why we struggle to get behind the team?

1 win 1 draw in our last two games

1 win 1 loss for Wales

2/3 wins against SA is better. As people always say Scotland's one more win against SH opposition is miles better I'm now saying our record against SA is miles better than yours. Up until recently England would lose every single game against SA laughing

That's the other way around. It's not disrespectful to say we don't see Wales vs Scotland as a rivalry. You might see it as a rivalry but we don't.

Coat-tailing them now are you? That's pathetic but then again your lot tend to coat-tail whoever beats Wales. England's recent record against SA is shocking though.

No you misunderstand my comment. Not seeing us as rivals is fair enough. Like I said our last few matches with Oz have been close (within a point on 2 occasions) and swinging both ways wins and losses either side. I don't see Oz as a rival.

I'm on about the general disrespect shown by certain corners of the Welsh "fans" on here. Unable to have reasoned and structured debates without it moving onto boring willy waving and lobbing of rotten fruit. tomato

This place can be amazing sometimes, but other times it just boils my urine. Wales not seeing us as rivals is fine, I wouldn't expect it, but Warren Gatland is not a popular man up here, I'll leave that up to your on imagination to figure out why, and that translates into a desire to defeat the team he is in charge of.

By the logic of your closest competitor Italy could arguably be our closest rival, but it certainly doesn't feel like that. If last year's 6N taught us anything it should have been home advantage is back in a big way. With the exclusion a trip to Rome and a really close game in Cardiff between Wales and England noone else won away from home. The highly fancied Ireland and Wales went down at Murrayfield, The Scotland England game was expected to be close, and it wasn't and England hot off that win were the Favourites in Dublin. The 6N I reckon will be a much tighter affair moving forward with all of the teams seemingly making progress.

Yeah coat-tailing and childish behaviour, it was ever prevalent when your lot couldn't beat us. There was an abundance of crying and bitching on here at the time, just like now I guess. Yeah Scotland are our non-rivals having only beat us one in ten, they don't really have a good record against anyone though so not sure why you're still latched onto them.

England have lost more against SA, thought you were meant to be some good team? Surely your record against SA would be better if that's the case?

Radge, you could replace Wales for Scotland in those sentences above and it would still ring true. Open the other eye!

England have played SA once under this regime and won - 100% record.

You've played them 10 times with your leader in charge and won twice - 20% record

I'm no mathematician but that looks to favour England

My issue with this is that

a) Gatland wasn't the sole selector in the Lions coaching setup

b) No Scottish coaches applied for any role within the Lions setup

c) Using the above as the basis of a rivalry with another nation seems a little petty.

Yeah you couldn't, I remember the crying when your lot were humped in Cardiff. Worst fans in the world back then and worst fans in the world right now because their favourite players, including the people's MOTM didn't get picked for the Lions. Wales are poor right now and are matching your lot, nobody needs reminding of the Cuthbert tackle attempt...

Scotland don't have a good record against anyone, true. Wales have a good recent record against Italy, SA, Argentina, Scotland, Ireland, France and pretty even against the most amazing team in existence (England).

England have like 1 in 20 recent win rate against SA, that's pathetic for the world's greatest. Wales have won the last 2 in 3 and that's what matters Wink.

I am not, and never have disrespected Scotland or Scottish rugby. As I have said on here over and over, Edinburgh is my favourite trip of them all. I just see things they way they are.

What does get my back up on here though, is the fact, that Scotland beat us in the last 6N, which was a very good result for them, as they totally out played us in the second half, but now all of a sudden, they are the better side, and direct rivals to Wales. Come on. Lets get some perspective here.

If it was not a Lions year then Wales would not be without their first team coach for almost two years, as much as others do not rate Gatland, he is on a different stratosphere when you compare him to Rob Howley and Robin McBryde. He does make a difference, and with him in charge, perhaps the small losses to England and France turn into wins, and the second half collapse against Scotland does not happen.

Then we go into the Lions tour with people saying Scottish players should have toured instead of Welsh players, and not other nations players picked as well. It is tiresome.

There has been more chest thumping, and disrespect coming from our Scottish members on here towards Wales/Welsh, Warren Gatland, than there has Welsh disrespect towards Scotland/Scottish.

Scotland have improved over the last 12 months, compounded by Wales stagnating with inept coaching. Gregor Townsend is a very astute coach, he proved this with Glasgow as well. He has been the biggest difference to the Scottish national side.

With Gatland back at the helm now, I can assure you, that you will see a marked improvement on Wales performances, and results. The last year or so has been a nightmare with Rob Howley in charge.

Strange, England fans go out of their way to slag off Wales yet again and when they get hit with a bit of truth serum they cry to the mods. Typical of them and something that's been happening a lot during this Lions tour. Maybe England fans should have their own forum, you know, to escape reality?

I think Scotland are currently a better coached team, I don't think man for man they have many players than Wales.

I know it caused outrage before but I do agree they are better than the sum of their parts.

When was the last time England played New Zealand ?

I would hazard a guess that Wales have played them at least 4 times since England last played them, so I guess the figures are skewed. Unless of course you have taken New Zealand out of the formula all together ?

BamBam, why are you bringing up irrelevant stuff? You sound as desperate as Scotland fans. I've already said that it's the last 3 that matter for Wales, two of those were won, the other lost to another Cuthbert tackle attempt... England are supposedly the greatest team to exist so I'm just wondering why their recent record against SA is shockingly bad.

Well that is a complete lie and has been pointed out by everyone - and highlighted examples of players from all countries that should not have toured -

I would say that on current form there is very little between Wales and Scotland and I expect very close encounters. I think we have the more exciting backs, but Wales the more robust forwards. Wales have a greater strength in depth too.

Matches over the last few years have mostly been close and Scotland have been in postions to win several times. I am hoping that we can move forward to win these more often - and that could be the biggest change for Scotland

Radge, you could replace Wales for Scotland in those sentences above and it would still ring true.  Open the other eye!

I could never understand why a lot of their fans reacted so badly when losing to us, and I've used these forums since 2008. Right now it seems to have gone beyond the point of desperation when it comes to rubbishing Wales and then pretending it didn't happen. For the record guys if the English agree with you then it's not because you're making a point - they'll champion anyone and everyone bitching about Wales.

Lorddowlais sticking with Gatland isn't ambitious.

Scotland have at least freshened up their coaching set up. Cotter has put down some building blocks and Townsend will hopefully capitalise.

Gatland has now been on and off in charge of Wales for over 8 years.

Been in charge for a whopping 92 tests.

Nah.... let's not change.....

Sorry I was talking about games vs the SH. Those stats would not make good reading for any of us.

Much better for England than Wales I presume.

I think the 'bickering' thread needs to be re-established.

This all needs to be quarantined somehow!

Well you mentioned 1 in 20 not me (turns out its 8 in 20)

Turns out it's 1 in 13 so it's worse than I thought. Stop behaving like LD says you are.

Yeah - we can go a little further back for that one. The original point was rivalry, there's a clear-cut case for a rivalry between England and Wales in rugby despite all the results anyway.

Typical of them and something that's been happening a lot during this Lions tour. Maybe England fans should have their own forum, you know, to escape reality?

I removed Scottrf's comment as it was unacceptable, but when you are using aggressive language like "Worst fans in the world back then and worst fans in the world right", which is a gross generalisation and guaranteed to get people angry you should probably expect people to report your posts.

Argue your points yes but there's absolutely no need to throw those accusations in and post in such an aggressive manner.

1 in 13 is worse than 1 in 20? Righttt

Not on your 3 game basis. 3 0. To England. Now some would ask is a rivalry a long term or short term thing. Clearly it can be both. You're right to say over the laSt 10 years scotland haven't been a serious threat to many teams.in the 6 nations. That was with past teams though. They're getting.quite good annoyingly.

True RDW, it was a personal attack against me. I was merely pointing out that the worst fans are acting like the worst fans. If that is deemed unacceptable then it's not a term I'll use against anyone in a personal manner from this point forward.

No it hasn't. I have seen loads of comments about how Finn Russell should have toured instead of Biggar, Johnny Gray instead of AWJ, Hamish Watson instead of Tuperic and Warburton, any Scottish winger instead of George North. So lets not pretend it has not happened. OK

R!skysports wrote:Matches over the last few years have mostly been close and Scotland have been in postions to win several times. I am hoping that we can move forward to win these more often - and that could be the biggest change for Scotland

Only the games at Murrayfield. The games in Cardiff have not been that close. OK

R!skysports wrote:I would say that on current form there is very little between Wales and Scotland and I expect very close encounters. I think we have the more exciting backs, but Wales the more robust forwards.

That is debatable. Liam Williams and Hogg, I would rate not much difference. Finn Russell is probably more exciting than Biggar but not better, but everywhere else I think Wales are better, Scott Williams, JD2, North, Webb, Gareth Davies even. I would not swap any back player for their Scottish equivalents. But I might be a bit biased. Very Happy

Worse than I previously thought, yeah as up to this point it was guess work on my behalf. Glad you've stopped coat-tailing anyway, that was a bit wrong.

I wouldn't use that against Scotland

People think there's English and Irish players who should have toured ahead of Biggar, AWJ, North and Halfpenny too
