The time we ended up in Pitlochry was because Edinburgh was full - I hadn't realised it was the Heineken Cup Final at Murrayfield and that was doh moment for me but Pitlochry was beautiful and really enjoyed my weekend there. Very Happy

So it would seem.  Just watched highlights on BBC and even they didn't look very encouraging.  Doesn't bode too well for the rest of the tournament. Whistle

We just don't seem to have the killer instinct when it comes to scoring tries.  Rolling Eyes

That certainly seems to have been the problem for a while now.   I wonder if the team could do with some help from a sports psychologist - if they aren't already getting it?

Scotland were shocking, even worse than last year, from the beginning Dan Parks was kicking the ball right down the middle to English hands instead of going for a corner or finding touch, awful, and then gave England the try! Second half I thought was a bit better after Robinson made some changes. Real embarassing.

Dan Parks is either on song and plays brilliantly or he is a total liability - unfortunately, yesterday he was the latter.

Dan Parks retires from international rugby...

Probably a good move on his part as he was bound to be dropped for the Welsh game - a sad end to his international career though.  I feel sorry that he has been made the scapegoat for Scotland's poor performance on Saturday - there were 15 players out there against england not just one!
