Scotland have created an extra man wide a few times but wasted it. Errors are killing us.
Will Wales revert to being more pragmatic? Can toonie find some tactical answer?
Bighand for the ref making scrums a fair contest and giving the turnovers Missed a few forward passes for both sides tho 😉Posted 2 months agomindmap3Member
I was gutted that Wales didn’t manage to hold them out for a nil.
For all the hype about Hogg he was outshone by Halfpenny who had a fab game.
Scotland’s much vaunted backlije did very little, the back row didn’t have much impact and the line out was woeful. Trouble is I’m worried that means they’ll be very good in a couple of weeks.
Wales looked pretty good. The new faces certainly injected something. Nice to see Adams go well.Posted 2 months ago
My take on it? Scotland in the first half had more than parity but couldn’t get anywhere in midfeild so everything had to go wide. Scott Williams I thought along with Navidi was excellent in stopping scotland getting anywhere in the middle of the park
The early easy points gave Patchell confidence to go for everything and today was his day.
Scotland vaunted backs? Unfortunately a fine 10 and back 3 won’t cut it if the centres are doing nothing in attack and McGuigan took a bunch of wrong options. No big ball carrier in the forwards either.
Second half was back to the bad old days of looking like a beaten team. No kick chase, dropping off tackles.
For Wales the early gifts gave them the confidence to keep on attacking. Better all round game.Posted 2 months ago
