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.

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.

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.

 

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.

For those traveling from outside Cumbria, junction 40 of the M6 southbound (Penrith) will be closed from 8pm till 5am Weds.

Tuesday

2 options - either take the A591 at Keswick, south to Windermere, then Kendal then onto the M6 at junction 36. Or at junction 40 roundabout, carry straight on onto the A66 towards Appleby/Brough. In about a mile at the next roundabout, take the A6 south to Shap and then join the M6 there at junction 39.
