  • It just sets up perfectly.

  • First of all, thank you very much to the wealth contingent.

  • I got a couple of, well shirts coming once, coming from Dan to thank you so much for that.

  • I think another one's coming from Jim's.

  • That's just so kind of you.

  • Add some color to the background, much appreciated so straight into the game I think will be the best game of the second round on that.

  • Scotland versus Island The psychology is fascinating here.

  • Scotland, who won their first game sense blood in the Water Island officer who lost their first game, are really out to prove a point and show that was kind of a one off dip in their intensity on Scotland have gone very clear with their selection here.

  • They've beefed up their pack on. 00:00:56.490 --> 00:01:8.240 They put more experience in that you think they can win this if they match the physical battle and they don't do anything silly because they've got the firepower in the backs to do it. 00:01:8.300 --> 00:01:9.970 So let's just go through the team.

  • So I've got Del Macken, Alley Bergen.

  • So the loss there is now dropping out of the scored through injury.

  • It's such a shame Nell is their best tight head on.

  • They just can't get him fit for a run of games.

  • So Bergen's a good player, but still now would have been a starter for the World Cup is in their best team.

  • So that's a bit of a lost there in the second row is interesting.

  • Johnny Gray's come back to fitness and he straight in, so that's on its tutus.

  • That's dropped out, which tells me they're going for beef.

  • They're going for grunts, and I think that's the way to go with this big Irish team.

  • Two dishes on the bench for said a bit unlucky.

  • But that's a really good three second rose there.

  • Heavyweights.

  • Let's see what happens, who gets the better of that one, especially with island being a little light in that second row area.

  • So I think Scotland think they could steal a march there and maybe get dominance in the over those two second rose of a violent on the back row, possibly by design.

  • And despite the fault because Skinner is out injured, then Ryan Wilson moves to sex, and then they bring in big Josh Strauss at eight.

  • Jockstraps isn't quite as athletic.

  • He doesn't give you the liner options for Skinner would.

  • But it's probably the hardest, nastiest back row.

  • I would say, Richie, have a great game versus Italy.

  • He's really developing into good international.

  • So I'd say it's a beefy a pack than last week, maybe slightly less athletic with tutus and skin around.

  • But I tried to fight fire with fire.

  • England kind of won the game by playing island at their own game and not Scotland.

  • Here, elect, you tryingto put out their biggest pack possible?

  • I think so.

  • That's probably the thinking there.

  • If you can think of another reason why they've done this, let me know late. 00:02:55.030 --> 00:03:1.380 Lauren Russell stay the same and then the other big, interesting shock is a shock for me, really is. 00:03:1.380 --> 00:03:3.790 Kinghorn is out of the starting team. 00:03:3.790 --> 00:03:10.050 He's still on the bench, but after scoring a hat trick and playing so well you know Maitland come straight in.

  • What is that?

  • Sai Maitland isn't significantly a much better player than Kinghorn, I don't think, but he's significantly more experienced internationally, so I think they're going for that experience over the youth, even though King home plate great.

  • So that's a tough call, shows Gregor Towns and isn't afraid to make these tough course.

  • Then pretty much as is Johnson Jones in the center.

  • That's a big battle with the Irish centers who are now AKI and Pharrell.

  • Toe has a real physical battle there for those two Scotty centers who are a bit smaller than their Irish counterparts on, then hold it fall back, hoping to weave some magic a bit of a boost on the bench.

  • Actually, in the forwards, they get Fraser Brownback, a hooker.

  • That's Big Maur experience coming off the bench. 00:03:58.970 --> 00:04:3.740 They were light in the area last match, and that brought Brown straight back in and then to list. 00:04:3.740 --> 00:04:5.130 Like I said, dropping to the bench. 00:04:5.130 --> 00:04:9.610 Harley coming into the squad's as cover for the back row price is normal.

  • King hold on the bench and another big change is Hasting drops out.

  • Hastings drops out on Peter Horn, is it?

  • And I can only think that's for experience.

  • Hastings is a good player, but he's not quite the finished article yet.

  • And they think, maybe gets island.

  • They want that experience on the bench.

  • That's how I read it anyway.

  • Beef and experience for Scotland.

  • Do you think it's good enough calling below and let me know?

  • So on the flip side, we've got Island coming in with a few changes, but definitely a very strong team, and they're desperate to make up for last week.

  • So this is why it's gonna be such a great game.

  • It's just gonna be fireworks from the start.

  • I think so.

  • He'll be best for long.

  • Retains the front row.

  • I thought the two props especially played well against England.

  • Even though they lost, they played well.

  • Ryan was a little quiet area. 00:04:59.300 --> 00:05:2.550 He'll have a point to prove, but the big question mark is over. 00:05:2.950 --> 00:05:4.760 Quinn room at five. 00:05:4.760 --> 00:05:7.170 I thought they might have gone to land straight in there. 00:05:7.340 --> 00:05:8.740 I have some good suggestions. 00:05:8.740 --> 00:05:12.250 Maybe maybe Reese Robert should step up and play second robe.

  • But I've gone with room and it looks like he might be calling the line out as well.

  • For an inexperienced guy, this is high pressure, big, big pressure for this guy.

  • This could make or break his international career.

  • In this game so common below.

  • Let me know how you think he's going to go.

  • I know plenty of the Irish fans out there are not sure about this, but the back row.

  • It's quite clever, actually.

  • I like it brought in Cone and eight, Who's your specialist?

  • Eight in good form, being fit, playing well, technically, very good on that.

  • Put O'Brien in in his Mork comfortable environment in the back row with seven.

  • So Marnie and Brian as your flankers.

  • That's really, really strong.

  • And Conor's a quality player, so I like that a lot.

  • It's gonna be a great clash between those two packs. 00:05:58.270 --> 00:06:4.980 A little scary with O'Brien coming in as an extra background, you know there's a bigger back row ballcarrier. 00:06:5.250 --> 00:06:17.880 Let me know everything that's the right call with Vander Fleer dropping to the bench even though he actually played okay last week, then Marine sex and retains would take a lot search and knock them out, even though they didn't have their best games last week.

  • Stock Down State and Earl ST so maybe a little fortunate that both of them survived from last week.

  • But they are the first choice wingers, and there's not a huge amount of pressure.

  • Potentially, I think Conway, who is the next in line, is injured.

  • Let me know if I've got that right role.

  • You could play Larmore on one of the wings, but I think they're looking for him or as a fullback and an impacts up.

  • So the wingers stay in the sensors.

  • It sounds like Henshaw is called a bit of a knock.

  • Is that an excuse?

  • If it was a World Cup final would have Bean in.

  • I don't know.

  • It's a good reason to leave him out after Norma great game last week. 00:06:59.060 --> 00:07:0.520 But anyway, we see ankle. 00:07:1.520 --> 00:07:3.880 We see AKI with Pharrell. 00:07:4.050 --> 00:07:6.000 That's a combination of Vacuum Farrell. 00:07:6.000 --> 00:07:8.750 I think ankle fire, Eliza based. 00:07:9.030 --> 00:07:14.860 Okay, if you haven't seen him play before, this guy potentially could explode onto the international scene.

  • He's got that much potential, so watch out for him.

  • Even though he's a big lad, he looks like a 12.

  • He plays predominately 13 and he's a serious handful big and rangy, very awkward to get hold off, really looking forward to that.

  • And then carnies dropping straight back into 15 hopefully is fully fit.

  • He's not rushed back in, and we hopefully will see a new improvement in the defensive alignment of island with him in there.

  • Then it's the same sort of line up on the bench.

  • Cronin, Kilcoyne, Porter to land coming in.

  • He's a six choice, a second row, but he is a good player is no mug, but he didn't experienced Bander Flare on the bench.

  • Think Cooney Carberry Llama has before.

  • It's a very strong team. 00:07:56.770 --> 00:08:2.930 Few question marks in their over Quinn recording the line out, but overall powerful, exciting. 00:08:3.130 --> 00:08:4.450 Who's gonna come out on top? 00:08:4.630 --> 00:08:14.870 I'm still probably siding with Islanders favorites, even though Scott under at home, but it's gonna be close if Scotland can score a couple of quick fire tries.

  • Get ahead of Ireland.

  • You know, we've seen the island on the best of chasing and chancing their arm chasing a game, but I don't know I can see island grabbing hold of this one trying to stop Scotland playing anyway.

  • Stop going on about that comment below who you think's gonna win that match and what you think of this island line.

  • Then we'll have a quick look at the whales.

  • Team.

  • Wiles versus Lee is an interesting one.

  • I think Alan would have planned to rotate place for Italy as a ll the big teams are going to do.

  • It's no disrespect.

  • It's just the chance to try players and rest a few players.

  • And they have like that.

  • They arrested.

  • And when Jones, for example, we've got the the Reserve. 00:08:54.070 --> 00:09:7.360 If you like the reserve front row playing, even though a very good player, Sampson Lee especially got made a chance toe try and get back into that first choice place balls coming into the second row to give Alan when Jones arrest. 00:09:8.100 --> 00:09:13.790 And he's got a chance because he was the partner without Alwyn Jones a while ago before his injury.

  • So let's see how he goes him with Beard.

  • There's a heavyweight second row.

  • Wainwright gets a star, he's exciting, and then you've got Young as well.

  • At seven.

  • That's such an exciting 67 I think they've got a ll the potential orgy of talent in the world, one of those at least could force their way into a starting spot.

  • Even Naveed is dropping 282 showing how versatile in a VD is and possibly why that's going to get him to the World Cup.

  • So how did David has been given the chance to have a go at scrumhalf?

  • He's the third choice at the moment.

  • I think it's just to get him some game times and experience.

  • If they need him for the World Cup.

  • I don't think he's challenging the other guys just yet. 00:09:57.130 --> 00:10:2.680 Bigger gets his opportunity bigger, gets the big opportunity to show he's the man to run the show. 00:10:2.970 --> 00:10:8.030 And then there's gonna be a hell of a debate in selection for the England game. 00:10:8.270 --> 00:10:10.760 We'll see what Anscombe could do when he comes on as well.

  • You'll see this is a good opportunity to redeem himself a bit there.

  • Fascinating.

  • But after this game, they're gonna have to make a choice or who their best 10 is on.

  • Whoever starts for England think that's going to be the man.

  • I think we get to see what can A 12 I've been going on about it for ages.

  • I think he's got probably Maur raw physical ability on Hadley parts, although Hadley parks maybe a bit more subtle, bit more all round game on experience.

  • But he's got a chance of sneaking in at 12 actually, so watch him.

  • Jonah Holmes has been very good for whales.

  • He's coming in north, dropping out, actually, homes.

  • And Adam's got a good chance here. 00:10:51.680 --> 00:11:3.790 Could I see them is a bit safer, potentially the North, even though North such a danger an attack on glee in William's retains 15 did so well last week. 00:11:3.950 --> 00:11:4.930 Then we've got a win. 00:11:4.930 --> 00:11:11.150 Jones, Lewis Jones as well on the Benjamin Wynne Jones on the bench.

  • Moriarty's on the bench if they need him.

  • Gareth Davis on the bench if they need him.

  • AM scum.

  • A name, a name.

  • Also, plenty of firepower on the bench if they need it, it looks like it's a run out for everyone else, giving everyone a chance.

  • I think it's exactly what he would have done even if they hadn't played poorly last week.

  • And finally, I'm gonna leave England till last.

  • I don't have their team right now, but he's only retained 25 so it's gonna be 23 of them so I could have a good guess of it.

  • I might be proved city tomorrow anyway.

  • He looks like it's a macro.

  • George and Sinkler Front row was normal and then laws going straight in.

  • I guess he could put launch pre straight in to try it out.

  • A bit more bulk to counter at French.

  • But I think Laws has played so well, I can't see it. 00:11:58.890 --> 00:12:7.340 Cruz looks like he's gonna retain that line out calling roll, so I can't see him moving Wilson, Curry and Billy They again. 00:12:7.340 --> 00:12:8.710 I can't see any changes. 00:12:8.710 --> 00:12:13.410 Their shields is fitting in the squad, but Wilson has played so well.

  • Every game is played and they need to win this game.

  • I don't see that changing.

  • Just a note.

  • If Tom Curry does get injured, this changes it a bit.

  • This puts England in trouble, probably Wilson moving to seven or maybe Shields to seven.

  • And that's not ideal.

  • It'll they're not seven.

  • They're more sixes, slash eights.

  • Potentially young Sam Farrell will probably start at nine and 10.

  • I can't see any change being there to Lang in Slave.

  • I think definitely you're gonna retain their center partnership and that they could do with some time to build a real understanding between the two of them.

  • You could see they were happy in each other's company.

  • The way you know, they embrace each other after tries and just talking between them.
