Yes, as when motivation and effort are there - I am the best person to have in your corner

However, I will never bury my head when things are not right and I will push push push to success

That is why I have so many friends........oh......!

Know it's someone on here, but for some reason I can't send direct messages to that page anymore Headscratch

Nice, GLove.

Never seen those pages before but I love their strapline - "BECAUSE BEING ILL INFORMED SHOULDN'T STOP YOU WRITING ABOUT RUGBY".

It's certainly never stopped Iain Morrison.

Dunbar confirmed as being out for the first two games unfortunately, Ashe also but I'm not sure he would have figured in any case.

Dunbar for me was never in contention. He's not played enough rugby. This changes nothing.

The backrow will be made up of a varying combination including Denton, Strauss, Hardie and Cowan. The centres will comprise hopefully of Scott and Bennett and Taylor can spare Lamont's blushes on the wing.

I know this is a bit off topic, but has anyone else been a bit surprised by the Italian 6 Nations squad?

Forwards:

Martin Castrogiovanni (Racing 92/FRA), Dario Chistolini (Zebre), Lorenzo Cittadini (Wasps/ENG), Andrea Lovotti (Zebre), Matteo Zanusso (Treviso), Ornel Gega (Treviso), Leonardo Ghiraldini (Leicester/ENG), Valerio Bernabo (Zebre), George Fabio Biagi (Zebre), Marco Fuser (Treviso), Francesco Minto (Treviso), Sergio Parisse (Stade Francais/FRA), Jacopo Sarto (Zebre), Abraham Steyn (Treviso), Andries Van Schalkwyk (Zebre), Alessandro Zanni (Treviso)

Backs:

Edoardo Gori (Treviso), Guglielmo Palazzani (Zebre), Carlo Canna (Zebre), Edoardo Padovani (Zebre), Mattia Bellini (Petrarca Padova), Giulio Bisegni (Zebre), Michele Campagnaro (Exeter/ENG), Tommaso Castello (Calvisano), Gonzalo Garcia (Zebre), Kelly Haimona (Zebre), Luke McLean (Treviso), David Odiete (Marchiol Mogliano), Andrea Pratichetti (Treviso), Leonardo Sarto (Zebre)

There's no Tommy 'Tomasso/Tomato?' Allen, Venditti or Furno of Newcastle or Tito Teboldi of Harelquins. Most notably though, no Simone Favaro Headscratch I don't know much about Italian rugby but some familiar names seem to be missing?

Has the coach gone mad or have I (as is the norm) missed something? Is this the Italian coach wanting Zebre and Treviso out of the Pro12 and trying to make a point?

It seems a bizarre time to introduce a ton of unknown talent from clubs that make Zebre seem like they are table toppers (Marchiol Mogliano - who?). With the calls mounting to get a team like Georgia into the 6N with relegation, if this Italian team gets hammered, as it looks like, I think Italy might be on the out of the tournament as a permanent fixture.

Yes a lot of familiar names gone, are the Bergamasco brothers retired? I watched the Glasgow game today, Favaro was interviewed at half time and said he had asked not to be considered for the 6Ns. What level of rugby are the players from Calvisano and Marchiol Mogliano used to playing week in week out, can't imagine the step up to 6Ns will be easy for them?

I'm surprised by the omissions of Furno and Favaro but when you plan to use Kelly Haimona at 10 the other team selections don't really matter!

Parisse is in there for his annual five consecutive MOTM awards. Lucky, because he's the only Italian player John Inverdale has heard of!

I also felt Italy have a strange squad. No one wants to see Italy getting pumped 5 times in a row, it would be a serious step back after some good performances from them over the last few years, notably beating Scotland and France a few times. I think they need to be patient like Scotland have been and maybe invest in project players to help fill gaps in their squad.

I'd be delighted if Scotland pump Italy in Italy.

I always look at the two squads and wonder how we often struggle so much against them - I think its because when we lose we have tried to play them at their own game and lost.

If teams up the tempo and are very positive against Italy they just can't cope - as Scotland showed before the world cup.

We always end up in an arm wrestle against Italy in the 6 Nations. We just can't seem to cut loose, other than the game in which Hogg picked that interception and ran the length. It's as if that 21-0 after 5 minutes is still living with the squad.

Hopefully this year will be different. With the back we have we'd be mad not to give the ball some width and stretch the Italian pack. We certainly won't bully them up front.

Of course I'll enter it (if I remember to)!

The 6N one is much harder though given that the games are generally close affairs and you don't know who is likely to score tries. I've done pretty badly in the past in the fantasy leagues for 6N.

It's not like Austria V Uruguay for example!

Don't worry fellow gin-monkeys, 14 units is the recommended weekly intake.

I've been saving up my units for this weekend - I'll be the sole navy-blue wearer in the clubhouse at Kingston Park on Saturday. Could be awesome, could be excruciating...

Hopefully this'll be you at full time!

I wonder if the John Barclay interview on the BBC website today is an indication that he will be playing this weekend? He and Hardie in tandem have to be worth a shot.

Hmm. There's no way that Hardie would be jettisoned now, so potentially JB is either at 8 or at 20.

I like the idea of 2 opensides, but without losing bulk.

Maybe 6 Strauss 7 Hardie 8 Barclay wouldn't be too bad. It's certainly got a lot of attitude.

Thought Denton was our best back-row forward at the RWC, can't see him being left out.

Like the idea of two opensides but up against a big physical England pack on the opening weekend, I'd err on the side of caution and go for Strauss' power with either Barclay or Cowan on the bench for he final 20 minutes when the game opens up a bit.

I think you could be a bid of the mark Dode. I reckon Dozer will start at 8 with Barcs at 6 and Hardie at 7. He's already spoken about it in the Torygraph stating Vern will play with 2 7s so Denton can focus on carrying.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/rugbyunion/international/scotland/12135059/Scotland-have-the-edge-over-England-insists-David-Denton-ahead-of-Six-Nations-opener.html

The Torygraph wrote:If Scotland could dominate the breakdown, it may well be decisive to the outcome of Saturday’s match, believes Denton. With England playing without a specialist scavenger on the openside, John Hardie is likely to be the game’s most influential player, and there is scope for Scotland to play a second openside or a six-and-a-half like John Barclay.
“I do [like Scotland playing with twin opensides] because then I can just focus on just carrying the ball and on my turnover work and defensive work.
“That’s now an area where I can make a difference, and it’s massively important for us to be able to get those turnovers and play off good ball.
“A few of the England back rows might be in different positions from those they are used to and that may unsettle them a little.”

I'll be amazed if anything other than

6 Cowan
7 Hardie
8 Denton

Is selected.

Whether that is right or not I think that's what he'll go with - continuity from the world cup.

Apparently Jones has offered Vern cotter a written apology for calling us favourites for next week. In the ESPN article it states :

"Jones is famed for his verbal sparring and admitted it is key in the build-up to any match."

I'd personally edit it thusly:

"Jones is famed for his verbal sparring and admitted it is key in the build-up to any match. being a Class A Walloper"

No doubt wishful thinking but with Hardie and Barclay on the field at the same time and hopefully Nel doing a number on England's loosehead then we could potentially see Laidlaw lining up quite a lot of kicks at goal....throw in a try or two as well...

I would really like to see Barclay Hardie & Denton as part of a backrow, but given Barclay doesn't really play at 6, and Cowan did well in the WC at 6, it would probably would be best not to mess with that.

Not sure Strauss has done anything to justify being in the team. He's not been playing at the same level that saw him get a call up to the WC squad, and at the WC he really didn't stand out. He's also been out for a while with concussion has he not?

I think the sensible option would be sticking with Cowan, Hardie and Dents, with Barclay on the bench.

I couldn't give two shiny sh!tes about the backrow.

Whoever can defend the rolling maul get's my vote.

Tackle round the ankles at a lineout. Can't think of any other rolling maul defence that won't suck in additional defenders.

We were extremely naive in our maul defence during the RWC and to be honest I can't think of any way we'll be able to change that.
