Sean Lamont's try saving tackle on Jamie Roberts

Sean Lamont's try saving tackle on Jamie Roberts

Earlier in the week we had a look at Jonny Wilkinson's try saving hit in the Six Nations. This was another stand out from the weekend, as Sean Lamont of Scotland had a blinder against Wales.

In what was a poor game of rugby for the viewer at home, Lamont came on for Scotland when Hugo Southwell went off with that nasty knock to his face from the boot of Lee Byrne.

While Scotland struggled to get their game together - at one stage unable to score a try against Wales' thirteen men - Lamont showed his commitment with determined runs and this great try saving tackle on Jamie Roberts. He has since called for his team mates to shape up or ship out.

"It was abysmal -- the boys need to go away and have a look at themselves," said Lamont.

"I'm sick of it -- I want to win something, I really do. We need to have a closed-door session and we need to look at each other and say: 'Guys, if you don't want it, don't be here. Somebody else will fill in.'

"I'm sick of having this year after year, valiant losers or whatever. We need to pull our fingers out, there's been too many years gone by where we've been also-rans. It's not good enough."
