Team spotlight - Scotland

Team spotlight - Scotland

This is for all the Scottish fans who've been wondering why we never feature any of your teams clips. The Scots recently upset Ireland, albeit a B Team, and are looking fit and stronger than we've seen them in recent times.

Here's a compilation of action from the recent matches against Ireland & the Springboks.

We're going to try spotlight a few of the teams before and during the World Cup, giving you some insight and footage of some of the guys you don't normally see.

This ones for you Rob.

Lamonts tackle at 0:22 on the irish fullback looked painful!!! Bet he had a sore ear afterwards!

i would assume hes talking about their overall brute style of game play. their not the most elegant of players, but their in the cup for a reason. coming from a scotsman, theres nothing typical about scot rugby, and nothing ugly!...fag

great video. some massive hits. Scotland don't have a chance at the world cup though. the all blacks will embarrass them and italy will beat them at their own game.

okay so italy couldnt beat ireland even when they were playing completely shit?the all blacks will be a massive challenge but i'll never put it past scotland to beat them, we raise our game as underdogs.and im guessing "haha fag scots..." was by an englishman/w@nker, all i can say is chabal fucked you alone never mind the other 14 french players, think what Jason White is gonna do to you? youre a pack of fat chavs with either schoolboys or mike OAP catt as backs.

I'm English and I like the way Scotland play. Strong tackling and pack work is what Rugby should be all about.Also whoever the English guy who is insulting the Scots is, please keep your opinion to yourself, you're making England look bad and coming over as a right wanker

Have we ever won anything?? I was there at last years 6 nations when we beat England and France.So to answer your question - yes.Shame about the unintelligent posts - I'm guessing they're from people who can barely play/understand the game.

Italy lost by a controversial last minute try to an irish team that was as close to full strength as was available.Scotland beat an irish team with only two first team players on the pitch.also these were only world cup warm up games and mean very little.

Ha!Why do you idiots bother coming here and insulting people?It's just a clip of some decent Scottish rugby, that's all.Relax, you're giving English rugby a bad name, isn't there some football you can go watch instead.

well thats some shitty comments , scotland have proved their worth in recent times , i mean playing their 2nd choice team against NZ and only incurring 40 points is some good defence ... it oculd have been even better with the 1st's ...and i notice some people are going to have to eat their words about scotland not making the quater-finals , i notice wales and ireland didnt make it :P

See, I've just moved down to Uni in england from scotland. And I was surprised when the English were so shocked at the way I supported teams that were playing against England. The reason for that I think is just the few arrogant english twats who like to slag off other nations. I don't mind who's playing the game as long as it's good to watch. England are in the final and good on them, they managed to get there by some good play - but after scotland crashed out in the quarters, I was walking back along the street with my mates and we were wearing Scotland shirts. There was absolutely no need for a bunch of twenty english guys to start singing "Swing Low..." We were upset by losing to the argies so that was bad enough also the fact that it's such a shite song might have something to do with it. Sort your attitude out England - it seems to be a few ruining the reputation of an entire country.

In response to:"When have you ever won anything Scotland? Or even been in a final? Brew on that for a moment will ya? Ha!Go England!"How does this sound:14 outright wins in the Four, Five and Six Nations.3 Grand Slams.10 Triple Crowns.Many Calcutta Cup victories.4th place in the 1991 RWC.Victors in the first ever international match.Not bad I'd say.Ronnie it was during August. They were warm up matches against Ireland and South Africa. They beat Ireland 31 - 21 but were beaten by the Springboks 27 - 3. Looking at the scoreline you'd think Souht Africa outclassed Scotland but they gave them a good match. It was very entertaining at times. Also the Ireland match, which I had the pleasure of being there, was an extremely good game with Scotland dominating much of the match.

Scotland may not be a particularly 'elegant' team in terms of rugby, but they get the work done - and like the video showed, they have some raw talent that just needs to be polished. They shaped up well for the RWC this year and i'd like to see anyone who has to guts to stand up against the scottish pack and tell them they play crap - only then would you see ugly.

:(What the f**k happened scotland?We gave it our all in the world cup and now we're back to poor clumsy rugby.We plummet down the rankings and slowly crawl back up again only to be let down again.its almost unwatchable to see scotland in bother again.

i was at both of those games we owned that irish team. NB ireland team included Geordan Murphy, Brain Carney, Brian 0'Driscoll, Tommy Bowe, Paddy Wallace, Issac Boss, Jerry Flannery, Simon Best, Paul O'Connell, Malcom O'kelly, Neil Best, Rory Best, Shane Horgan, Ronan O'Gara, Eoin Reddan. So not exaclty a B team.

To the scottish lad who moved to england for uni. i cant believe hes having a go at a few possibly drunk english lads showing some pride in there team and singing a song when theres people beaten for wearing the wrong shirt in scotland e.g rangers celtic. its a bit rich. but yeah english people have the tendancys to be wankers but what else do we have going for us haha

To all the English commenting on this. If I do recall us scots tied side in our last test match meeting. Not to bad for a team that isn't "elegant". We play our rugby the way we do and we win. The matches we don't win we give them a run for their money. We might not be the best team but we compete and win. All that's to it.
