Vincent Clerc, Shane Williams not exactly large units but made an impact. Jason Robinson wasn't huge (though he was a bit of a pocket battleship).

I think if Graham continues to develop his already good skillset he could skin most modern large players. I think we definitely worry about size too much in the backs - the forwards are the only ones we need to worry about being lightweight/small. Look at the crap large wingers - Simon Danielli anyone?

There's a long way to go with Graham yet - he hasn't even made his competitive professional debut!

Yes still room for small, quick wingers. Most T14 teams have one large and one small (ish) winger. La Rochelle's top try scorer last year GabrielLa Croix, is pretty small: 5 ft 7 and 12 stone 8, but he is a devastating finisher. Decent defender as well.

What about Nick Grigg? 5'9" and 14 stone according to Wiki but seems to be a pretty good centre both attacking and defending

I've no problem with tiny wingers.

Look at it this way, you have to choose between Tim Visser, Simon Danielli, Nikki Walker and Shane Williams

Who do you pick?

Williams, despite his size, we a competent defender. Sure he wouldn't knock guys back, but he chased them, went round the legs and brought them down or he'd just close his eye and run into the other fella and hope for the best.

Visser is a monster of a man, but absolutely Keeks his breeks at the prospect of tackling someone.

I guess with Graham (as RDW says) we don’t know how he’s going to do yet. He’s not started a competitive game for Edinburgh, but if he can fulfil the promise shown at youth level then I’m hopeful he’ll make a mark at international level.

On the size thing, I guess it depends on how he develops both physically and in terms of his game. He’s only smaller than Hoggy by a couple of stones and cm, and he seems to be doing ok . So if he can bulk up a bit as he develops and is still able to maintain his pace and step then he could be a very capable player, certainly in an attacking sense at least.

Agree that Graham looks an exciting prospect, though still early days obviously. Hope he can get fit, get a run of games for Edinburgh, and show what he can do.

Well lads, time to nail one's colours to the big wooden pole with the square-ish  patch of linen on it. Braveheart

Renzo and Toonie are both preaching the gospel of high-tempo-fast ball-mobile forwards-heads up rugby allied to aggressive defence and a fairly brutal approach to winning collisions around the breakdown. Glasgow seem to be having some success with it domestically, not so much in Europe. Obviously success or failure in the next three games will very much depend on how well Scotland can implement/ adapt to this style of play. Since 9-15 are all currently plying their trade under Renzo then I think we're pretty much seeing our strongest backs there.
Duncan Taylor for Alex Dunbar, Sean Maitland for Lee Jones are possible improvements. Visser won't be recalled as long as he continues to black out when asked to consider the adjectives "aggressive" and "brutal".
In the pack the back 5 are very mobile and all look like they will make ground with ball in hand.
I am especially pleased to see Toolis start rather than GG, who should now be sixth choice at best.
The injury to Mr Chinhook may prove to be quite serendipitous since the choice seemed to be between a biggish hooker who doesn't do much in the loose and Turner, a small one who does lots in the loose. Now we've got a decent sized hooker who knows how to play as a flanker. I fully expect Scotland to try to run Samoa off the field from the first to the last minute. If Samoa can't hold on to the ball for extended periods then they will be  in for a long afternoon.
Which brings me to our good fortune to play Samoa first.They are a decent team but are in transition. Their 10 has only ever played one professional match as a stand-off! Barcs and Hamish From The Glen must get under his skin early on and stay there like scabies on a Pilton smack head.

The excellent On Top Of The Moon site provides this little nugget;
Forwards
27.4   Average age   27.6
174   Test caps   66
884kg   Pack weights   883kg

So our pack are younger, more experienced AND HEAVIER. How often will we see that? (Especially without Mr Chinhook).

I really think this Samoa team will allow us to play and that Toonie has picked a team that can play. Braveheart

Surprised at our pack being heavier, but the Samoan pick isn't the tallest.

Their locks are 6ft 4 and 6ft 5 so id love to see Toolis (6ft 7) and Jonny (6ft 6) really make a nuisance of their lineout to starve them of possession.

In reading a Townsend interview I was also reminded of the horror show in the World Cup that was our restarts vs Samoa - every time we got points we'd then lose the ball at the restart and they pretty much scored straight away. it has been the Scottish curse for as long as I can remember - hopefully Townsend can fix it!

I remember losing a restart against the Pumas during RWC11 that effectively cost us a QF spot.

Seems ridiculous that it's been such an achilles heel despite being an area of the game that can be drilled.

It's one of those times where we're to honest/naive

Watch other teams like the ABs or England and you'll see that then the ball is kicked, the person who is best placed to catch it gets ready, but unlike Scotland where our players stand where they are and watch as the ball comes in, these other teams have their forwards move towards the catcher and pretty much make a little obstructive wall in front of him.

In essence, we need to do what Nigel says and cheat fairly!

Good first half by Scotland in the Rugby League they are leading Samoa 14 - 6, Samoa have been trying to smash them and Scotland are weathering, gutsy half by Luke Douglas older brother of Wallaby Kane Douglas.

One step at a time GC. He's still waiting on his trousers to dry, so let's target potty training first!

Am feeling optimistic about today. I think the Samoans will keep it close for 50 - 60 minutes but with the team we have we should be able to take the wind out their sails and make it count later on. Need a big game from Russell though to keep them guessing.

Yes, for all of the massive expectation on his shoulders, I would like to see Russell further his international development this year. 

By that I mean that he needs to show his judgement is improving and that forcing something which is not on can lose his team the game. He has all of the razzle dazzle, nobody is denying that. However, if his team is behind, he needs to lose the mindset that he needs to pull off miracles all the time. In that respect, his team mates need to take some of that pressure from him. Having Ali Price on his elbow and Dunbar outside him really has to help.

I tend to agree with you on this GC, though not on the feccin potty mouth you inbred barsteward.
Dancer has all the talent to be the best 10 since Toonie but he has to develop the parts of his game which aren't mercurial. When Glasgow were trailing Exeter by two points with five minutes to go I couldn't help thinking that our best chance of winning would be a pragmatic pick and drive, repeat as necessary and then slot a drop goal. Jonny Wilkinson, Ronan O'Gara, Jonny Sexton, Dan Carter hell even Dan Parks (especially Dan Parks) would have done that every day of the week. Instead Glasgow continued to try to blow the Chiefs away and ended up being Matawalued. But you are right, that is a team decision and he should have been helped by older and wiser heads.
Hopefully we'll see an improvement in his game management this season: because we have no real alternative at 10, certainly no-one in the same galaxy as him.

Jakey Nightclub-Ware! Did he not play open-side flanker for Harlequins in the 1978-9 season?

On the subject of jerseys: the free market has just passed the final damning verdict on Warren Gatland's tenure as Lions' coach; Lovell Sports are offering a FREE Lions jersey with every replica jersey bought between now and Christmas (or however long it takes to get rid of the feccin things).

Wait till you hear Dougie Fife speak. Mogadon and Buckie for breakfast methinks.
p.s. Stadtler and Waldorf would both be an upgrade on Hazel Irvine and funnier too.

Is this the first scrum on 19 minutes??

Our wide defence is very passive - NZ will rip us to shreds if we keep that up.

Can't help but think we're kicking too early and often in attack - we're using it every time.

Thought he looked groggy. Thought it was a head or shoulder knock. He played for about 5 mins with it. Bad times

Comfortable lead at half time but don't think we've played overly well!

Its been a bit disjointed but there are some good individual performances in there, Toolis is going well as is Marfo on debut. Price is playing well and suits Finn's game so well
