Just got back from Edinburgh. Despite the high score it was a good game and i thought Scotland played much better than Wales did on Saturday. They took the lead in the first five minutes and then The Knights scored three quick tries but Scotland got back into it before the break.

A couple of quick tries after the break for England but again the Scots came back to make the score look more respectable. The bust up between Sam Barlow and George Burgess certainly warmed the game up and i think Burgess was put on report by Kiwi ref Shane Ream.

Scott Taylor scored a couple of good tries for the Knights and the Broncos duo of Dan Sarginson and Kieran Dixon both got on the score sheet with Tony Rea watching from the stand.

Lots of enthusiam from the Scotland side and they should improve even more for the world cup.

Yep George Burgess led with the forearm/elbow and was put on report. Possibly the very next tackle, or maybe the one after, he nearly decapitated someone with a high tackle (probably clumsy to be fair). Certainly threw his weight around, but looked pretty unpolished as well, but if he sharpens up in the next year or two, he could definitely be an effective bruiser up front.
