I was reading a report in one of the Sundays by David Sole who reckoned that there was nothing wrong with Robinson but a lot wrong with the squad - mainly that they lacked discipline and commitment - but that sounds daft to me since I understood that coaches were there to instil these qualities into the players, should they be found wanting them.

You can't polish a turd.

At best, we would have finished 5th, the Italy defeat was the only defeat which was hard to take.

Sir Pands, why did Gray come off? Was he injured?  
Wales, although a small nation, has rugby in its soul, therefore there is a bit of strength in depth, though not always, I well remember the very lean years. Every small town in Wales has a rugby pitch, sometimes two.
Is Scotland more a footballing nation?

I think I can safely answer this part of your post and say that Scotland is much more into football than rugby - apart, that is, from the Borders' area where it most definitely thrives.  By way of explanation, you might find this link of interest -  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rugby_union_in_the_Scottish_Borders

Cheers Aileen, article seems to suggest Rugby developed in the borders, simply because it was next to England geographically.

That would certainly seem to be the case, particuarly as the Scottish Borders used to be famous for its textile industry - now sadly in decline.

Why because I'm on benefits? Well if he can find a way to magically make my back better then I'd be able to work.
