good news for Scotland? there are better 9's than him to select. leadership loss is bit of a blow though as don't think of the backs as leaders in that team.

No use crying over it just have to get on with it and Ali Price will give the Welsh defence a different problem. Much quicker service than Laidlaw and more likely to snipe around the side and hopefully will keep the Welsh back row honest
Problem is more in who is on the bench. Hidalgo-Clyne and Pyrgos both looked excellent last year but have been fairly pants this year neither getting much game time and both being very much number 2 behind Sean Kennedy at Embra and Price at Weegies. My suspicion is that Price will start and Pyrgos will cover the bench.
A real shame for Greeg of whom I have been very critical because of his slow service but he has more than made up for it with his goalkicking and leadership over the last couple of seasons.But as I say no point in crying over it we just have to get on with it.

He is their leader, but as far as his roles as scrum-half and place-kicker are concerned I am sure he'd be fairly easily replaced.

Good short range kicker, has had a good average at various times in the past but short range kickers should always have a good average in the modern game.

Sad indeed ....when I tuned into the Ireland Game and Scotland were on top I was totally chuffed ... it was what Rugby is all about.

Laidlaw being out takes the fun out of things.

Still waiting to hear about Hardie and Barclay as well. Back row beginning to look a bit thin but hopefully Watson is fit, Wilson to come bacl and either Bradbury or Du Preez. Not ideal with the Welsh back row coming and calling and Engerland 2 weeks later !!

It's real sad that Laidlaw v Eggy won't happen. There is no chance in hell Laidlaw would have been able to out fox Eggy Egbert but shit happens.

Ce Sera Sera.

Barclay has been returned to Scarlets for treatment which suggests the injury is probably reasonably serious. I am sure however in the spirit of Celtic Rugby Co-operation the Scarlets medical team will be doing their utmost to get him fit to play Wales !! :love4: :D
