It’s Edinburgh’s turn for the ‘Official’ On Top Of The Moon Depth Chart treatment.
Three Warriors have made the move to the far East this summer. Time to wish them well (and no crossing of fingers!)
Undoubtedly a step back from the performance levels in the wins over Italy and France – still vastly improved from last season’s embarrassment in the final round of the 6 Nations though. But who was up and who was down among the Scotland 23?
This will be the reverse of last season’s final round of the 6 Nations – and both teams find themselves in very different positions 12 months down the line. Scotland’s winless run has been consigned to history while Ireland’s defence of their title ended early in this campaign.
A chastening experience for the men in blue as the momentum built over the opening 2 games was halted by some fairly poor tactics and execution allied to intense Springbok physicality.
With 2 wins and 10 tries under their belts, Scotland move ever closer to home to take on the might of the Springboks.
