All Blacks gym session ahead of Scotland Test

Comments

The All Blacks face a capacity crowd at Murrayfield on Sunday when they take on Scotland, who will be huge underdogs if history is anyting to go by. Some of the All Black players said they don’t know much about them, with Dan Carter stating that they’d rather focus on their own performances.

An experimental side was expected to be picked, but both Carter and Richie McCaw will be starting.

Here is a quick video look at their final gym session in Edinburgh ahead of the game.

Final score predictions?

    p.s I realise my punctuation is pathetic in that above post "Brilliant in no way 2nd string" could be taken as "in no way is that guy brilliant, 2nd string" when in actual fact I mean "Brilliant, in no way is he 2nd string".... just to clarify...

    So you're saying the AB's were happy to let the Scots score 22 points, 3 tries, against them? 15- Dagg, - Brilliant in no way 2nd string 14- Jane, - Brilliant in no way 2nd string 13- Smith, - Not first pick 12- Ellison, - Not first pick 11- Savea, - Brilliant, definitely competing for top spot of 11 shirt 10- Carter, - 2nd string? or 3rd string? Or possibly best fly half in the world? 9- Weepu; - Ah, yes, another out of place, out of shape delinquent, just like Carter right? 1- Crockett, - information is lacking on this guy, although heard his name rings a bell 2- Hore, - Plenty of starts.. 3- Franks, - Heard name thrown about a lot 4- Romano, - new comer (ish) 5- Whitelock, - hardly a new comer! 6- Thomson, - started many times for NZ 7- McCaw (C), - Ah, definitely a has been surely? 8- Vito - out of place player.... Sure looks like a thrown together second string side to me.... oh and btw, what has "resting players" got to do with anything? If NZ rest ALL their players and give the shirts to a bunch of school boys who get thrashed would it be safe to say "yeh but it doesn't count because NZ were resting their best players?" Your rationale is poor at best...

    Pretzel, zip off down to specsavers matey ........ apart from one errant interception, the AB racked up 34 points with ease. They were coasting and could shift up through the gears whenever they wanted....it was a doddle ......... AB rested their best strike runners Jocks should join the North Europe League & play Iceland,Finland & Sweden ......... although to their credit they were in a nice strong defensive line during the anthems !!

    I have to say I was thoroughly impressed by the Scots today, although no team would ever admit it was about limiting the damage, any rugby fan was aware that it would be HIGHLY unlikely that this was Scotlands day to beat NZ. So as I rugby fan I felt that the Scots were always going to be playing a damage control type game. However they really went at the Kiwi's and it is incredible to see them play with such ferocity. Of course there were the usual Scottish errors which the AB's capitalised on, however to see 3 tries run in against NZ's 6 was quite incredible. I don't feel that the score really reflected the game, NZ of course were always going to win it... I think if the Scots can get the first tackles nailed (DC broke through so many tackles) then they would be in for a much better chance. That jump in this video was insane!
