Wouldn't be surprised if we say Stewart McInally or Tim Swinson in the back row today, or Taylor

For what it's worth I think 8 is Wilson's best position, but that's like saying Dunfermline is the best part of Fife!

Classic Scotland leading to their first 3 points - the good followed by the bad.

Fair play to Wilson - has a decent start!

We need to keep Italy in their half - their lineout is rattled

Set peice is on toast, Scotland a little fortunate to still be getting the scrum decisions, but they are clearly dominant.

Since that 2nd try theyve switched off, Italy score next and the 2nd halfs going to be a battle, I'm just wondering if that high intensity 25 mins with a slick offloading game, and high ball in play time hasn't hurt the Scots as much as the Itlians.

WP Nel looks like he can't breathe, and is waddling around the park right now.

1 - well but switched off and let Italy back in
2 Jonny and Hardie standouts.
3 - 7 points ahead but would have been more comfortable if laildlaw had kicked a penalty on half time. Italy still in it!

1. Pretty well, superb 25 mins, high intensity, looked slick. Considerably slower in the last 10 mins.

2. Russells missed touch, his passing is weirdly flat whether anyone is there or not.

3. I'd say so, I think there will be more points, but I think Scotlnd should have enough to keep ITaly in their rear vue mirror.

Parrisse is a moron, he had 2 opportunities to play that ball away from a scrum and opted to keep the ball in to a creaking scrum, what is he thinking???

The decision to choose a scrum in first half was ludicrous too

Peyper, if the scrum creeps along a white line it isn't going forward, and Scotlands back 5 are doing exactly what England did to Wales, and walking around.

This is going to be a harem scarem finish, Scotland have done so well to put themselves in the driving seat with 20 to go, then a few silly decisions and it's a 6 point ball game with a man down
