Hamish Watson, Brown, the Gray brothers, Strauss and Maitland did themselves credit. Russell, the props, Jones were just so poor, especially at the end when we needed some kind of intelligence to get out of our half.
Also, why was our lineout so weak? Didn't get within a mile of a single one of their throws, like we couldn't be arsed competing at all.
watching Scotland's scrum absolutely marmalised was a blast from the past. Hopefully it encourages the SRU to pony up to keep Nel managed here properly.
Without Laidlaw we are screwed, Price and Russell cannot manage a game between them. Who was captain once Barclay went off?
