First topic message reminder :

I thought I'd be the one to start the match thread this week seeing as I haven't started one in a while and I'm trying to contribute to the forum more I'm future Wink.

Before this test, there is a massive Scottish Derby in the URC which I'm definitely going to watch, let's hope these pesky train drivers aren't causing mischief again lol.

Regarding Saturday, everyone knows we will need to be MUCH BETTER than we have been this tournament to have any chance so hopefully Stuart and Gregor are rallying the troops all week in training etc.

I keep saying this as its true but, our rough record HAS to come to an end one day so why can't this weekend be that day just as last year were the days our rotten record was finally broken at Twickenham and Stade Francais.

As for the team I'd go:

Schoeman
Turner
Z. Fagerson
Gray
Gilchrist
Darge
Watson
M. Fagerson
Price
Hastings
Graham
Johnson (though GT won't drop Harris as he's our best defender)
Bennett
Kinghorn
Hogg

I am struggling to pick the bench so I'll let you guys help me out there, I would put Harris there but that means dropping Steyn completely and expecting BK to go the full 80mins. The other thing I'm struggling with is, do I put in Nel or Dell and Christie or Bayliss because my plan was to go with the 5:3 split.

Anyway, I'm expecting a good, tight and open game , hopefully with less errors from both than we saw from the round 4 matches.

My prediction: Ever the optimist and bearing in mind my original point regarding hoodoos eventually being broken, I say Scotland by 2, coming from behind Very Happy.

Not been too bad a half and I'll take that scoreline. We've really got to lift it though if we're going to stand a chance.

And keep the pressure up when we have the ball!

Love Wayne Barnes. He and Owens were/are the last referees using common sense, against the nonsense of overzealous TMOs.

Ireland haven't actually been very good this game - things just haven't clocked.

It's been a chance this game and we're just giving away tooant penalties and mistakes.

Barnes was annoyed because the TMO was making things up. He said there was separation when clearly there was not.

TMOs should keep out of the game unless called upon by the ref or there is CLEAR foul play.

It is that sort of decision making that got him dropped by Exeter for the bigger games last season.
