    The Georgian scrum is to be feared.

    Yeah I’ve heard that been bandied about but have never seen them so not sure how good their forwards really are. Loads of changes for Scotland, interesting to note the rotation of captaincy, also good to see Stokosch back in think he is a strong hard player. Surprised to see no place even on the bench for Moray Low you would think he would have to feature in the next game either starting or one the bench with Murray not available against Argentina. Good to see Morrison back, was not initially a fan but lately think he is doing well, brings some extra solidity to midfield, will be good to see him and Ansbro back in tandem for the next game.
