@seapointer... your comments are completely ignorant and misinformed. If you had a quick look at Scotland record under Andy Robinson, they have a 2/3 record over the SH big three with wins over full strength OZ and SA sides, they have a series win in Argentina as well as a notable triple-crown denying win in Dublin. OK so the results in recent test have not gone there way, but the performance has been there plenty of times. Look at the last two games against England... nothing in it... last game again France... again very close... Wales... performance was much better than Score suggested. With Players like Hogg, Jones and Visser coming through Scotland finally has some players that can finish. To be honest, I would actually be surprised if Scotland DOESNT beat Australia. On one hand you have Aussie side using this as a warm up game for Wales... on the other a VERY desparate Scotland team(who beat a full strength OZ team in the last outing) on the end of seven straight losses with the very reputation of Scottish rugby and our history on the line... you choose but I think your going to see a famour Scottish win next Tuesday.
For one its Australias problem that they cannot show Scotland any respect. For an

Both well deserved call-ups, surprised Dunbar not there from the start, certainly one for the future and, as a "whopping boy", he's in the mould of the modern centre. Come on Scotland, you can give Australia a helluva game I reckon, nothing to lose.

A bit harsh on Scotland i think,after all they have alot of problems one of which is the smallest proffesional player base to choose from, in world rugby about 1./2 or a 1/3 of Australias,and Australias isnt massive hence the amount of NZ born players in their squad.The SRU has even less income than the ARU,and untill the start of this year have struggled to find class assistant coaches imo..They maynot win against Australia ,but i think they may surprise a few people and it may be closer than you think ,or Scotland just might nick it,after all you write off any team at your peril.Just like the wallabies did against Samoa last year,overconfidance may be their downfall.Lets just hope its a good game from both countries,and it starts the international season off with a bang ok
