First topic message reminder :

A continuation on previous threads discussing the past, the present and the future of Scottish rugby. A dose a day, keeps optimism away

Halfway through a Covid season and not far from the Rainbow cups, both teams are on the precipice of missing out on the top tier in Europe next year. The Rainbow Cup is a well thought out idea of including sides from South Africa, the home to a new Covid variant that vaccines may not work on, with international travel involving several regions of Europe.

Glasgow are trying to adjust its squad by removing the deadwood of the Rennie era and slowly promoting its youth (if the fans were in charge). Back row has been a source of ire for a while
Glasgow Squad

LH: Kebble, Seiuli, Allan, Thornton, Lambert
Hooker: Brown, Turner, Stewart, Matthews, Dolokoto
TH: Z Fagerson, Pieretto, Rae, Nicol, McQuillan
Locks: Cummings, R Gray, Harley, McDonald, Bain
Back Row: Wilson, Gordon, M Fagerson, Nakarawa, Ioane, Fusaro, Lokotui

SH: Price, G Horne, Dobie, Kennedy, Korteweg
FH: Hastings, Keatley, P Horne, Thompson, Thomson
Centres: S Johnson, Steyn, McDowall, Grigg, Fergusson, Kelly, Smith
Back Three: H Jones, L Jones, Tagive, Seymour, Matawalu, Nairn, McLean, Forbes

Edinburgh are in desperate need of a new backs coach who can use its back three weapons to unlock opposing defences rather than using forwards to run against a brick wall ad nauseum. Otherwise, one of the strongest packs in Europe with depth and talent across the board.
Edinburgh Squad

LH: Schoeman, Sutherland, Venter, Grahamslaw
Hooker: McInally, Willemse, Cherry, Kitchen
TH: Nel, Berghan, McCallum, Atalifo
Locks: Gilchrist, Toolis, Carmichael, Davidson, Hodgson, Ferreira, Sykes
Back Row: Mata, Ritchie, Watson, Bradbury, Crosbie, Haining, Miller, Darge, Boyle, Kunavula

SH: Groom, Pyrgos, Shiel, Nutton
FH: VDW, Chamberlain, Savala
Centres: Taylor, Bennett, Dean, Johnstone, Venter, Gordon
Back Three: DVDM, Graham, Kinghorn, Sau, Hoyland, Blain, Coombes, Farndale, Winters

Edinburgh doing well but Racing's power is frightening - Chat is  breaking tackles at will. I fear for us later on the game if Racing can keep this tempo and intensity up.

Racing break away and score from our own lost lineout. Proves again you need flawless set piece in these kind of games away in France.

20-3 HT. Seems a pumping but we haven't been that bad - Racing have just take the two breakaway tries when they came. We are up against it physically though.

We had a chance to score on HT but the ball was held up over the line.

And I'm off to my scratcher - only so much excitement from Edinburgh that you can take on a Sunday evening.

No one's expecting us to win this so probably worth the experimentation. VDW is on the bench and maybe has been carrying a niggle so not trained much?

May also be Cockers looking ahead to try and improve our options at 10, especially with Hoyland looking decent at 15.

Just as well Racing's first choice 10 wasn't playing otherwise it could have been embarrassing.

So now we get to sit on our hands and wait until we maybe or maybe don’t play someone in July???

What do the players do? Get themselves on a pre-pre season training regime?

Do any of the English clubs want a loan of some players given that they played up to the middle of June???

I know the rainbow cup with the SA teams was meant to start up but the bonkers world that we’re in just now threw a spanner in the works and that public safety is first but surely someone somewhere could have come up with some ideas on keeping Pro 12/14/16 players occupied?

Or do we count our blessings and get the Scotland contingent together for 3 months of training? Let the other nations knacker themselves for the lions and the we can pounce next year and win a “devalued as it’s a lions year” 6ns title!

Well the Adam Nicol question whether he'd actually make it has been answered with him moving to Jersey.

A real shame as he's one player I hoped would push on, I remember him really tearing it up at U20s.

He seems another example of a player who was just too big, and it his body just couldn't cope with the demands of being an elite athlete. There's been a few props over the years in the same boat.

Maybe he just needs a bit of time.

The championship is a hard, forward dominated league. If he gets the game time he needs in it, he could come back stronger in the future. Unfortunately from Glasgow perspective, he has never really stepped up for us.

Not surprised by the Nicol news, don't think Wilson has every picked him when had other choices available -it's a shame he hasn't kicked on, in an ideal world he would be a ready made replacement for Zander for when he moves on

Hopefully he can progress in the Championship.

It's always a bit of a lottery which players can make the step up to the pro ranks, and goes to show progress isn't always linear.

From watching him during his stint in the U20 team, I'd have put the mortgage on Nicol making it as a regular at Glasgow.

A real shame for Nicol, hopefully he will get game time and be able to prove his worth. Wasn't Jersey the destination of a former promising second row who left Glasgow a couple of seasons ago, after getting little playing time with the first team? Cannot remember his name but he did look promising when he played.
Not having a 2nd XV league, or espoirs as they are called in France, really stunts the development of many of the fringe players.

I was thinking about how helpful it is for the Top 14 clubs to have their best espoirs players primed and ready for first team action when required. On Saturday Clermont had to rely on a fresh faced  loose head prop, called Bibi Biziwu. 19 years old and looks like he weighs about 19 stone, but really dynamic and powerful in the loose. At one point Joe Launchbury attempted to tackle him and I thought big Joe was going to require an HIA after the way his head snapped back as he slid off the tackle and then crumpled into a heap on the ground.
Another espoirs player, the 21 year old second row, Tibault Lanen, stole the Wasps final lineout throw as well as securing the final 2 Clermont lineouts which eventually led to the match levelling try.  I realise that the reason we farm out our young players to the clubs is financial, but it does make the task of making it as a pro harder because you don't get the consistently high level of play week in week out against teams of other up and coming young pro's.

Conversely, Chris Fusaro was always a  player whose talent, and heart, was much bigger than his body. Sadly, the rumours are that his latest knee injury has ended his career.A real Warrior who gave everything every time he pulled on the jersey.

Post by BigGee Tue 13 Apr 2021, 8:52 am

Nice tribute to Massimo from Mark Palmer.

Just about the only place you didn’t see Massimo Cuttitta with a smile was anywhere near a scrum machine. That’s when the switch would flick, the game face would come on and the avuncular Italian would get stuck into what was ultimately his life’s work.

Cuttitta cared deeply about people and, when it came to rugby, making them better. The tide of testimony that has arrived in the wake of his death, aged just 54, on Sunday is proof of his success, not just with the nuts and bolts of front-row play but in connecting with players as individuals, earning their attention, respect and trust through a friendly but always driven style.

Alasdair Dickinson, Allan Jacobsen, Moray Low and Stuart McInally are just four of countless character witnesses to pay warm tribute to both the coach and the man, who had a nine-year association with the Scottish game, first as Edinburgh scrum coach then in a wider brief that took in pretty much every aspect of the set-up from the national team down.

Cuttitta always put in the hard yards, not to mention the miles. At one point, he was coaching Edinburgh on a Monday, Glasgow on a Tuesday, Doncaster Knights on a Wednesday, Amatori Milano (where he and twin brother Marcello had won four Italian titles as players) on a Thursday, back home to Rome for the weekend then on to Fiumicino airport on the Sunday night to start it all again.

He deserved infinitely better than the tawdry, underhand manner in which his SRU involvement was brought to an end in 2015. Cuttitta was back in Italy between the Six Nations and the start of the World Cup training camp when Scott Johnson, then Murrayfield director of rugby, arrived to tell him — out of the blue over dinner — that he wasn’t going to be allowed to see out the last year of his contract. It hurt Cuttitta deeply that he was not even permitted to return to say goodbye to the players, coaches and fellow staff members to whom he had given so much.

Having coached Canada, Romania and Portugal as well as the Scots, it was also a sore point that he never got the call to lead the Italian pack, having played a major role in earning them a place at the top table of Six Nations rugby. In 70 appearances (22 as captain), he helped secure those landmark wins over Ireland and France in the late 1990s, and was the starting loose head when Scotland were beaten in the Azzurri’s first championship outing in February 2000.

Speculation was mounting that Cuttitta may finally have been brought back into the national team fold by the new FIR president Marzio Innocenti, who led the outpouring of grief in his homeland. Cuttitta had been seriously ill in hospital with Covid-19 since the end of March, and died two days after his mother, Nunzia, who also had the virus. Marcello — a former wing who is still Italy’s all-time leading tryscorer — had previously lost his father, Carlo.

The brothers are legends of the Italian game, revered not just for what they contributed on the field but the humility and humanity they showed off it, like in helping arrange a charity match — in which two Glasgow players featured — to aid the victims of the 2009 earthquake in L’Aquila, the Abruzzo town where they took their first big steps in the sport after spending a chunk of their childhood in South Africa.

It has been a brutal couple of days for Italian rugby, with another former national captain, Marco Bollesan, also passing away at the age of 79. The former No 8 won 47 caps (34 as skipper) between 1963 and 1975, was Italy coach at the first World Cup in 1987 and team manager at the 2003 and 2007 tournaments.

So it does not look like Glasgow fans will get to see Hastings or Huw Jones play again in their colours, both out injured. Cummings seasons looks like it is done as well.

In slightly better news and also eminently sensible, Rory Darge moves over to Glasgow as of now and will hopefully see some gametime in the Rainbow Cup.

Real shame about Cummings, Hastings and Jones. Have Glasgow had their 1st XV on the pitch at any point this season?

Darge move makes total sense. Knowing our luck at Edinburgh, he'll turn out to be awesome and another that got away!!
