To be fair they are unlikely to have an easier ride all season given they were up against our 4th choice loosehead (who is technically now a TH but is only covering LH) and 3 blokes who weren't even at the club a month ago. A few weeks ago our tighthead was starting for the bottom club in the championship!

P.s. happy Hogmanay everyone

Hey dudes, 2018 has started with a real squelch - I fell on my arse on the walk down into Tobermory for the fireworks, then the batteries fell out of my head-torch.

It’s decidedly uphill from here!

Happy Hogmanay everyone!

Being born so long ago, so very long ago, has given me a slightly different perspective on modern technology and how it affects the ways in which human beings interact and engage with each other.

Bru's latest missive reminded me of overhearing the future MrsPip ask her friend, Big Fiona, how her latest paramour was panning out.
"He's useless. He would need a map, compass and packed lunch to find my clit." Was her succinct reply.

Oh the wonders of modern technology!

Bru has a "Head Torch".

Yet he still manages to fall off and land on his arse. picard

p.s. after test-driving another swain Big Fiona was heard to remark, "That yin was too fond of the drink. It was like trying to push a marshmallow into a slot machine." Shocked

Happy New Year one and all.

Jim, I love that in your head, a ‘walk down into Tobermory’ is a euphemism!

Ian, I love that after all this time you are still surprised that anything in my head is a euphemism.
A woman walked into a bar and asked for a double entendre: so the barman gave her a large one. drumroll

On a serious note; Dunbar looked to have hurt/damaged his knee and Fraser Brown looked to be out before he hit the ground on Saturday.
I have said before that Dunbar seems to be operating about at 95% of what he was before his long lay-off, I'm beginning to worry that we've seen the best of him.
One of the most worrying aspects of cumulative concussions is that blows to other areas than the head can lead to black-outs. Fraser Brown seemed to go into contact shoulder first, and didn't seem to take a blow to the head yet was clearly sparko before he hit the ground.
I am concerned that for those two young men the New Year might not be as welcoming as they might have hoped.

A long term Brown absence certainly won't help our 6N hopes either given our propping issues - Turner off the bench combined with back up props really will make our scrum struggle.

Glasgow didn't give away any kickable penalties while the Luvvies conceded about 25 in all to my reckoning, with a fair few of them in kickable range. I think that is a fair reflection of the game: Glasgow won comfortably but never really looked like scoring too many tries.

Jimbo

Mark Palmer in the ST reckoned the Luvvies conceded 26 pens - so one of you is wrong.Rolling Eyes  Very poor discipline by Edinburgh over both these matches.

Schiz, I was watching at home with the distarctions of family, beer, Chrimbo foodstuffs, beer and herself. Mark Palmer is a professional journalist paid huge amounts of the folding stuff to get these things correct.
He did well to get so close to my total. Whistle

They should probably give Brown a proper month off now, he does seem to have taken far to many head knocks than is healthy, though he does seem to bounce back from them. Glasgow should be able to manage without him for the Italian job next week, then the two dead euro rubbers to follow.

It is actually rare these days to see Dunbar not hobbling at some point in a game, even though he usually plays on with it. The amount of strapping does suggest he is not 100% fit though, hopefully he can be managed over the next few weeks as well.

Dunbar may not even be Glasgow's number one choice at 12 these days, as Sam Johnson has been playing very well prior to his injury. I can see him coming into the Scotland mix next year when he qualifies. He is a very good player.

From a Scotland point of view it was also good to see Duncan Taylor get a run on from the Sarries bench this week. He has struggled to stay fit over this last year as well, but if he can, I suspect that he may be our starting 12 in the 6N. I like the idea of a Taylor-Jones combo in the centres.
