Really hopeful of a strong Scotland performance. It will be really difficult for them to make the metres on the big Headingley pitch (as opposed to Derwent Park), but if they do get the ball far enough upfield then they have a few tricks up their sleeve.


I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I think we all know Danny Brough has plenty of tricks up his sleeve, I've seen him destroy Leeds plenty of times in the past and hopefully he can do the same tonight.

 

Not expecting anything other than an NZ win, but would love to see Scotland give them a fright!

Looking forward to this one regardless. Can't see NZ losing but I don't think anyone will complain if Scotland give it their all.

Expect it to all be over as a contest within 20 minutes, but looking forward to a few highlights from the Scots all the same.

I think the Scotland team should face up to the Haka, then about turn. lift their kilts, and moon the Kiwis...a little like this advert but less rude 

 

Some people would still moan ;)

The only way Scotland stand a chance is to try and kick New Zealand to death and wear their forwards out.

 

Oh, and give Matty Russell the ball in open play.

 

Looking forward to it!!! Could be a shock in store.

They do not need RHP, all he does is repeat or agree with the others...stealing a living

I'll be glad if the Scots give the Kiwis a hard game , obviously I want my team to win , if Scotland won in a shock upset it would be very easy to find a silver lining in that after the initial shock lol

 

From a kiwi point of view we want two haves of even / consistent high standard. Nothing flashy required , direct fast contact footy.

To be honest losing by less than 50 points and scoring a try would be an achievement.
