guys - leave the McNamara bashing off this thread - you are very boring. This is about Scotland v NZ.

Was a great game to be at. We were firmly in the Scotland camp but it was a genuinely brilliant experience to watch the Kiwis. I never feel like that watching the Aussies who are often more industrious.

Plenty of positives for Scotland, hopefully they'll be able to build on this team for 2017, they should be very proud.


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 the commentary style is very reminiscent of Test Match Special. Very respectful and positive about the game, but also entertaining in a way which would appeal to non-rugby league afficionados.


Spot on.

"throw another haggis on the barby" has to be the best line yet from this wc.


What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

Yes but only after you 'get the bagpipes out'.

You need to get your facts right not Odsal. Brough was told back in June by McNamara that he was not in his 40 man squad, he was not being picked for the Exiles game the following weekend and was not in his England plans. Hence the reason he used his Grandparent heritage and went to play for Scotland as his only chance of playing in the world cup. That's no issue with the England coach it's factual.

 

Yet the Scottish coach said that Brough had confirmed to him he would be with Scotland back in February - reported in rugby league the other week and I don't see why the scottish coach would make it up.
