Sturgeon demands replay of game

I am reliably informed that Saint Nicola of Scotland intends to demand a replay of Saturday's England V Scotland rugby match in the Scottish parliament tomorrow.

She is claiming the majority of Scots did not want the result and therefore a replay is justified.

Do you agree?

A replay won't do any good!

I doubt the men in skirts could even beat the English under sixteen side.

Strange... I expected the Scots to give a close 50/50 game as England hadn't really played well at all until yesterday.

Scotland didn't play badly, England just upped the game to their expected potential of the first game.

Now it's up to Ireland to spoil the grand slam and 19 straight wins party...

Nicola Sturgeon doesn't need to demand a replay, the Unionist parties are doing it for her. They are forever going on about it.

If you actually look at the reports rationally you will see that she only ever mentions a second referendum in response to a direct question, usually from a reporter, o in response to one of the Unionist parries banging on about it.

She rarely, if ever, initiates the subject herself. She doesn't have to.

As on this forum, it's the unionists who bring it up!

What's that got to do with rugby?

Rugby, politics whatever the Scots are still ahead of Wales it seems.

ore importantly, what did the recent series of goal kicking contests between various bands of overpaid prima donnas in national shirts have to do with rugby?

The rugby game of today is different to the game of the '70s.

Personally I think it's improved and more entertaining.

It is supposed to be called "the handling game"

Count how many points are scored by handling agains those by kicking.

Constant penalty kicks ( and I scored most of my points from them!) have ruined the modern game as a spectacle.
