I believe Scotland didn't have Peter Wallace available for their warm-up match against the Kumuls, but even with him, I believe Tonga will be too much for the Scots.

Tonga win.  Fairly close, but size and speed of the tongans will see them through

Tonga win but like most games should be an exciting game and a halfback combo of Wallace and brough isn't so bad I suppose for scotland

Depends how Tonga mix. Tinga and Samoa often disappoint, I hope they do so for this game only and then find real form.

Believe!

With Brough we beat Fiji last time. Without him we lost to Tonga by 48 points. Hopefully it will be close either way.

Looking forward to seeing this on my own paddock . Towns rocking for the comp . Can't wait to see the Hurrellicane in live action and hopefully the three Townies . Great stuff . Plus haka , anthems , and Fuifui . What more could you want !

I've gone for the draw. If the weather's bad, I think Wallace and Brough's kicking game will nullify the size of the Tongans. Hugely looking forward to this.

I think Scotland will just sneak it. Hope we get off to a good start and build on it.

Come on Scotland you can do it.

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

The Scots have to play an intelligent game, especially with the boot, and hope Brough and Wallace can click straight away. If Tonga get momentum on them, it'll be very tough.

That's what I'm scared of.

Tonga in a physical game. Poor weather could suit Scotland, as I feel Tonga will have too much flair, pace and strength

Scotland will surprise many this WC and may be the one of the three Home Nations to emerge swith the most credit.

Being an outsider, it is easiest to see what is wrong with the sport. It's a fantastic sport that has been undersold and under-marketed  because people who run it probably want to keep it the way it is

Agreed mate, I think they could be the surprise of the tournament if Brough, Wallace and the Hendo's get thier stuff right.

I think Scotland win by the class of their halves,if and its a big if ,they can contain the big Tongan forwards.
