While acknowledging the “major blow” of losing Watson, one of Scotland’s most consistent performers in recent seasons, forwards coach Danny Wilson was keen to emphasise what Bradbury – who narrowly missed out on the original 31-man squad – will bring to the party.

Utter madness, the whole rugby supporting public could have told them this when the squad was announced, but it took a pasting from Ireland for the coaches to realise they lack carriers?

On Danny Wilson, it's fair to say the jury is very much still out - can't say our pack has been overly great since he took over. And he's been in charge for more than enough time now!

Thing is though, we all assume the 31 squad that was picked was all agreed upon by all the coaches so we assume they are all culpable for not picking decent ball carriers.

For all we know Wilson was the one saying "we've nobody who can carry for the hard yards, why have we picked Ryan Wilson???".

Aye the jury is still out on Wilson but we don't know where he stands in regards to disagreements with Townsend. Townsend ultimately has the final word so the buck stops with him.

I wasn't specifically meaning about the Bradbury non-selection, more the general performance of our forwards since he took over!

Oh, well in that case he's totally culpable and should be burnt at the stake

I've decided that my attitude towards supporting Scottish rugby should be entirely reflective of the team.

Wild mood swings, erratic behaviors and only turning up when things are going our way.

Plus ca change, as they say in Kelvinside.

The Aldi price injury really bad news. A sickener for him and a huge blow to the squad's morale I would imagine.

Either Toonie continues with Frodo at 9 and the Fastest 9 In The World for the last 5 minutes OR the whole squad decide, "Well lads, we're Friar Tucked here so let's just give it a lash."

For Samoa
(1) pick the gnarliest, punchiest pack we have
(2) pick the fastest, most aggressive in your face backs we have.

1. Dell Shrek
2. Brown Rambo
3. Ragnar Nel
4. Cummings
5. Toolis GG. I noticed someone saying Toolis and Cummings don't complement each other, let's not overcomplicate matters; Jonny tackles himself to a standstill but doesn't impose himself around the park, GG tries to smash it up but doesn't make enough yards. So lets put in two very mobile youngsters and tell them, in the words of Lawrence Taylor to "have some fun, like a pack of junkyard dogs!"
6. Bradbury
7. Mabawsa
8. Replicant Batman to bench; there may be a Samoan forward who hasn't been "wound up" sufficiently by the hour mark.

9. Wee George Let's go all in: if we believe we're on the Fastest Tram In The World then get a driver who's not chronically risk averse. Frodo has to bench
10. DancerHaircut. Tom English was saying that SJ doesn't read Dancer's lines of running, blaming it on his RL background. I think the game plan was to bypass the 12 channel. We need the ball in SJ's mitts and him taking it to the line to create space outside. We also need a back up 10 in case Dancer and Toonie are not talking.
11. D'arcy
12. SJ
13. Hardest Working Defender he has looked competent every time he has come on. deserves his chance.
14. King Blarehorn. Fecc it, he's fast and might make something happen.
15. Hogg. With instructions to ram it up them every time they kick to him.
Taylor as 23, covers everywhere.
