Almost forgot about the national Rugby side's momentum. Just watching as they go 14-0 up again Ireland - 2 tries and converted kicks.

Nearly blew it 21-8 up to 21-22 behind with about 8 minutes left. Good win in the end

Brilliant, took panache at the start then sheer guts at the end to snatch victory from the jawsof defeat.

Decent game against Wales today. I thought it was game over when we went behind, because they are so fast in attack - but no - we have the comeback! Rovers take note!

Wonder what the origin of the Calcutta Cup is - great to win it but wonder what sort of colonial stuff it dates back to?

It was really refreshing to hear Eddie Jones - and some English commentators giving Scotland honest and genuine praise without excuses.

I doubt anything that Jones says is genuine.

Some result for the Scots though.
