Is the game on? The Scots are not known for generosity....who will pay the Samoans team their match fees?

if you have ever played up there , you will know Scottish rugby teams are very generous with their hospitality, a but too much sometimes.

Agreed, but this is international rugby, For playing against England, the Fijians got 650 quid each as a match fee while the England players got nearer 20,000 quid.

Something amiss there...the IRB looks after the top 6 or so

Fixed that for you.

RFU and IRFU are the autocrats at the top. Scotland have toured both Samoa and Fiji in the last few years, one of the very few tier 1 sides to have done so. When was the last time that a full AB's, England, Aus, Ireland or SA side went to the Islands to play a test match? With no revenue stream from home ticket sales or TV contracts then it's not difficult to see why the Samoan RU is struggling - poor show from the supposed big boys.

Wales played in Samoa this summer didn't they? :thumbup:

particularly twatish approach from the BBC - only Samoan topic they want to mention is that fact the have no cash.

Sonia - asked the same question 3 times of the Samoan - manager, what it's like being broke.

Hope Samoans play well to shut McNicoll

This could be a good game. Let's see if Townsend can keep the team going forward after whatsisname left.

Good try Scotland, but the ball bounce couldn't have been luckier.

Scotland will beat Wales again this year, and I am already tired of the Scottish accents :D .

I might watch the soccer.
