I just watched the Scotland v Australia rugby match in a state of suspended animation. It was as one-sided a sports event as I have ever seen and yet the team doing all the work lost.
Scotland rode their luck like Mick Kinane on Sea The Stars. But the effort, commitment and resolution was unforgettable and unbelieveable. The stats were hilariously in Australia’s favour but Matt Giteau’s kicking was lamentable. Two tries written off also helped our cause. But really, it was great TV and a great David v Goliath happening.
Huge credit has to be given to our new English Coach, Andy Robinson. And, of course, Scotland’s backs.
