Think we can all agree though that the Scotlandish backs outpower the English ones as a unit.

Yes but I don't think the difference is as significant as the speed advantage the English backs have. Of course you have to namecheck VDM who is always going to be hard to deal with but I think England will cause the Scottish defense plenty of problems

My annual resistance has crumbled and I'm back for the Six Nations.

It seems there's two relatively skilful, agile teams. Really makes one pine for the days of Perry Freshwater and Allan Jacobsen going at it between the two 10 metre lines for 80 minutes. There's shades of 2012 with this one. An experienced and settled Scotland side, going up against a relatively inexperienced new look England side. We all know what happened there. Scotland don't do well as the overdog. It doesn't suit our psyche. If you happen to be a history nerd (congratulations), and you've read Good King Robert's testament then you will catch my drift. If you've had sex before and not read any medieval Scottish war strategies then you might want to get a life.

In essence, it's a 14 line poem supposedly summing up Robert the Bruce's battle tactics. It also provides a blueprint for all great Scottish rugby wins over England. An admission that they will be outpowered, they won't have the cavalry. But by subtlety and surprise they can perform a sort of guerrilla warfare. Being the favourites rather dispels that possibility. Scotland's victories, until last year at least, seem largely to have been the result of being irritating in the breakdown, niggly at set piece and a couple of moments of magic.

The difference is, this time, we have a handful of players who are used to being the favourites on the big occasions. Russell, Hogg and Gray for example are used to it al club level. Most of them, have had experience of being favourites against Tier One opposition for Scotland. Maitland is another but he has been bizarrely overlooked. The other issue we've faced in the past is that our players have been experienced in numbers of caps but not occasions. It's all very well having 50 caps but if 30 of them are Six Nations drubbings and a further 15 are gimmes against Tier 2 nations with a smattering of victories against Italy then that experience is not all that much to talk about. No offence Graeme Morrison, Sean Lamont and Nick De Luca.

This bunch have played big club games, some big internationals and a fair few are Test Lions. It's a decidedly unScottish Scotland team (not just Duhan Van Der Merwe) that will perhaps not be best suited to the Scottish weather. So I'm predicting a very Scottish performance to bring us all back down to earth and throw egg in my earlier self who bet a foolish amount of money on a Scotland win.

Anyone seen thew ridiculous try from Arundel in the U20s match? If senior Scotland give Steward that much space it wont matter if he runs like a turnip.

Well, I've wakened with that sense of dread that presages a resounding England victory. furious

Oh well, we're doomed. Doomed I say.

No point in even watching.

Mind, I've put beers in the fridge Headscratch Best not to waste them.

Maybe it won't be too humiliating. Fingers Crossed

Could be the best Six Nations ever. Four teams are realistic contenders, Wales have the capacity to surprise, and Italy will offer a nice week off to every opponent they play.

Narrowly favouring Scotland today. England have picked a creative team for attritional conditions

Whilst it agree Scotland are favourites it's worth noting England have picked a backline full of players who can kick and a very mobile backrow that could easily be built for kick chasing. It's not necessarily a creative over attritional selection.

Wales are making an early bid for the Nadine Dorries Most Embarrassing Performance Of The Week award.
Actually, even as I type there is a voice in my head asking if she possesses the self awareness to be embarrassed by her incoherent ramblings.

This ironically is a Nadine Doris type comment...

If you remove 12-14 first team players from any 6N team would you expect them to be competitive?

England need to turn this territory into points. All over scotland so far but never close to being on the board. I guess great discipline form scotland not give any penalties away

It seems one of those games so far where possession and territory don't mean control...

Scotland look sound in defence, and I think when they get chances will come away with points
