WOW.....didn't know at all what to expect.  Are they at that much of a difference in all facets of the game?....or did the Eagles just have a good day?

Scottish cup action this weekend

Fife v Glasgow 

Aberdeen v Forth Valley

Edinburgh & Strathmore get a by into Rd 2

Good luck everyone

 

 

 

 

Unfortunately Glasgow couldn't raise a team and that game has been awarded to Fife.

Hopefully this isn't a sign of problems ahead for them. Tbf it's a long journey from Glasgow to Kirkcaldy and covid brings problems with travel since no car sharing is allowed etc.

We chose to pull out of the Strathmore 9s a couple of weeks ago because it would have meant asking boys to pay for a coach 3 weeks in a row. You can't even get a mini bus. It needs to be a proper coach to allow social distancing. We have hired a coach to Aberdeen and only 22 people are allowed on.

So you need to social distance on a coach but you can engage in physical tackling on the pitch? Literally no logic to these covid protocols at the moment

That's a Shame for Glasgow, hopefully Scotland RL can get some central funding from Somewhere and help the club's.

Just hope the WC goes ahead, hopefully get some funding from the cash from this if any

Could be wrong, but car sharing is allowed now, isn’t it? Voluntarily surrendering distancing between yourselves in the same manner as sitting together in the pub? I could be completely wrong, mind.

(It’s only an hour from Glasgow to Kirkcaldy so doesn’t bode well for when they play Aberdeen!)

I hope Forth Valley players are not feeling too demoralised be the 84-10 defeat. I hope there were no injuries either.

I am a fan of the mercy rule in instances like this: former Challenge Cup participants vs brand new team. However, I do not support forcing teams to do it. Hopefully the game was played in good spirits.

I can't think of anything more embarrassing than the "mercy rule." The boys are still upbeat, we were under no illusions of the task we faced this year. We have played a couple of strong teams and will learn alot from the heavy defeats. The games against Glasgow and Fife will give us opposition that we can properly compete against I reckon.

Not sure what your idea of the mercy rule is. But obviously I don't mean deliberately missing tackles or deliberately dropping the ball etc. that is patronising and "embarrassing indeed.

I have been in a team that played against a team of complete rookies. Once it got to about 20-0, the coach started subbing off some of the best players and also told everyone to go easy on try celebrations etc. I fully agree with that stance.  This is my definition of the mercy rule and in my experience, both teams involved appreciated it as act of fair play.
