Well obviously English people in general can come across as arrogant, especially when it comes to England-Scotland in rugby and football. England have got used to winning almost every time.

First time England have lost to Scotland in a while so it's a bit of a shock even if Murrayfield away is now a tough place for opposition to go.

That haughty attitude I guess does fuel anti English sentiment.

Can't forget that we band together in the athletics/olympics and I happily cheer Scottish athletes as much as the English ones.

Good luck vs Ireland. Ale

I also like Edinburgh - been there quite a few times - some for rugby, some for non rugby reasons but I've had happy memories of Murrayfield on my couple of travels there - funnily enough both club games.

I should have said that no-one on here is target of my frustrations  Hug

I was born and bread in Scotland, but due to have a few English friends ended up having a very soft Scottish accent.

I was attacked twice just because of my accent while a teenager

The vast majority of fans are very nice people, but there does tend to be a default ' English joke' ready to go - which I think becomes a little tired


However, going back to Rugby, you should be judged on the last game - and Scotland are the moral number 2 in the world (well kind of :-) )

Anyway, I will get off my soap box and talk rugby again


Some would say that you're the best of both Very Happy

Scotland announced a changed squad for the last game, with call ups for Matt Fagerson, Adam Hastings, Scott Cummings and wait for it, Richie Vernon!

Toonie has let most of the fringe Edinburgh players return to the club so they can prepare for the clash with Munster on Friday night. He is doing Cockers a big favour there.

Probably no great surprises about the first three additions, but I don't think anyone was expecting RV to come back in on the strength of a half a game in two seasons.

I don't imagine any of them are going to play in Rome, but at least they will get an idea how the squad works now and they may well tour over the summer.

I'll stick my neck out and say you are a project manager since I answered a task calling and got someone to do it anyway....

A nurse actually!

But I guess I am quite used to dealing with several projects simultaneously!

I am very much looking forward to this game, not least because I am going to it. I have been to the Stade Olympico a couple of times but only to watch football, it is though a pretty good stadium. By way of disclosure, I am married to a Roman and have spent a good bit of time in Rome over the years. I would thoroughly recommend it as a long weekend destination. The first time you go to Rome, it will just blow you away.

okay, okay, Big Gee, we get it! You have a perfect life. Italian wife and a sunny second home from home in Rome.

Don't rub it in, I have a mucky paddock to go into later to feed a depressed looking horse....

Nothing is consolation enough for muck, BigGee.

You genuinely though made me yearn for Rome there.  I might just make it happen now this year.  If it does, the Italian tourist board should pay you a commission!
