    Al Kellock made the most of what he had. He always seemed to be fighting for his place in the Scotland team but I always felt both Glasgow and Scotland played better than the sum of their parts when he was captaining.

    Leadership on the field and consistently playing better than the sum of their parts has been an issue for both Glasgow and Scotland since he hung up his boots.

    Bruce – known as “the ruck inspector” inspirational captain for Glasgow

    Favourite “character” in Rugby? I am going to go for Allan “chunk” Jacobson. The man who ate all the pies! When he retired edinburgh produced a new trophy in his honour – in the shape of his ear! He also saved someone from a burning house IIRC.

    Honourable mention for Adam Jones – funny as heck ( but too “clever” in the scrums)

    I think it would be a better and more pleasant challenge to name favourite “characters” from the other 5 nations. Doesn’t have to be all five, just not someone from “your” team. 😀

    Like it DD –

    Wales – Adam Jones. A genuinely funny guy
    Ireland – has to be Paul ” I’ll fight for you all day” O’Connell
    England – Austin Healey – has there ever been a more annoying little git of a player
    Italy – can’t really think of one
    France – Ibanez for his comments on Szarzewski. ” he is too pretty to be a hooker – but I am sure a few years in the scrum will change that”

    Watching first half, christ Moore is a chippy ****, doesnt know Mike Phillips name and Borthwick mocking the welsh pack….looking forward to the “flood gates to open second half” comments from Invertwat.

    Henson still gorgeous…

    I know we all like a bit of Squidge Rugby, but there’s some very detailed analysis from the RWC Games England V AB’s and England v SA which makes absolutely fascinating watching and learning about the modern strategy, coaching and execution:

    Wibble Rugby

    Who says Rugby’s a simple game eh.  Very interesting how Jones spent 4 years coaching how to beat the AB’s, but SA spent the same 4 years working out how to beat everybody with some alternate interpretations.  Opinions on the SA coach on the sidelines will be divided when you see him calling Englands plays, I’m sure…
