Matt Dawson says their first win at Twickenham since 1983 was the most complete and authoritative Scotland performance he has seen in his life.

I know this is a touchy subject, and possibly some people may deem it sexist, but I mean it in the true sense and genuinely have no intention to offend, but are any other supporters fed up of listening to women commenting on the men’s games?
We have men’s rugby and we have women’s rugby, great, but for me it spoils listening to commentators.

What a load of tosh. England were awful. Gave so many pointless penalties which were not created by pressure, but rather that all the Sarries players bar one, did not look match fit. If we had played NZ like that we would have lost by 50 not 5.
Yeah, what a load of tosh- says the overweight idiot from behind his computer screen after reading the post match summary of an ex England player who knows what he's talking about.

How many chips do you have on your shoulder. Sour Englishman as usual.

First of all congrats Scotland.
It frustrates me as a Rugby fan hearing “Eddie Out”

16-Grand Slam & Undefeated
17-6N Champs
19-WC Finalists
20-6N & AN Champs.
Best win % of any prev coach.

We’ve a long injury list & players available have minimal game time... This year was going to be a difficult!

Just be patient & accept the fact this is professional sport, you can’t win them all!
That's the problem. The tactics are to be patient and hope the opposition make mistakes.

No passion, no flair, no vision.

Embarrassed that only 4 Scottish players took the knee, do the SRU not see how bad that looks? Not one player in Scottish football has refused to take a knee and yet the rugby national team can only muster four players with common sense. Shameful.
Unfair. They're is liquorice allsorts getting murdered Removed
My wife is 'black. Whats up BBC Removed
Haha Dawson. The story should be about how good Scotland were but it's more about poor old England. Farrell is a thug who gets away with murder and you have to wonder what sort of photo's he's got of his coach that Ford gets dropped and Farrell moved into a position he lacks the skillset for. He also lacks the skillset for captaincy. There's immigrants with a better grasp of English than Owen. Removed

Don't think Ford is the answer at 10. Too late for Cipriani now.
Taking the knee is too politically minded now, and should NOT be part of sport. Many of those instigating this, and supporting this have strong political agendas

Of course change is needed, that goes without saying, but we should leave that to politics, the powers that be, and the Police, keep sporting events out of it

Otherwise sports will start to become politicised, and that will end badly

We see a good example of this in Scotland, where the top two teams have become politically motivated, which can lead to violence on the terraces, around the grounds, and throughout the whole of Scotland

There's nothing wrong with being politically motivated, but some of these supporters take it too far. eg the green brigade, is an organised political group, who have no place in football grounds

What are you blabbering on about? Have you been on the sauce?
you're obviously not a rugby fan, more the bigoted English hater, while supporting taking the knee to the hilt.

You sanctimonious hypocrites are now a huge problem in British society.

Jiffy is an institution and the funniest Welshman around.

High pitched shrill voice, 'It's on, it's on.'
As England took the knee, I thought to myself, we are going to lose. More concerned with what people might think of them, and being PC, they were like kittens pathetic. Grow some like the otherteams Removed

Politically correct? The people who complain about it do so because the can no longer be casually racist, misogynistic, homophobic etc. Trump hates sportsmen takingthe knee, tells you all you need to know.

You can blame Itoejay for that. He's black, and his life matters - he believes in the cause and likely influenced the players to show respect, who knows? It was a dismal England display though, and it was yet another example - of 30 years of England time and again, relying on big guys and forward dominated play. This time, Scotland also had the big guys - very big, and England's gameplan crashed.

One player doesn’t make a team , fed up this imported nonsense , the real slaves are people working on Zero hour contracts etc , this is merely a distraction and has no place in Sport , taking a knee is pathetic nobody wins battles or wars by starting on their knees , Glad to see 95% of the Scottish team see through this political correct rubbish .

If Itojay life never mattered he wouldn’t be playing in the first place , let’s face it if you can buy a semi Automatic at Walmart , no life’s matter , there’s black people in other countries that have 10 times the problems they do in America, so cut the corporate liberal American trash out of the 6 nations as it’s false Removed

Eng weren't awful, they were the same as 2020 when a Hogg brainfart gifted the game, same as 2019 when an 84 min Ford try saved your blushes, same as 2018 when we beat you 25-13 scoring 3 tries but butchered 3 more. Eng were the same as last 4 years, we however have evolved & improved.
It wasn't perfect, an 85% performance, we butchered 15 pts, we have to up our game to stand a chance v Ire & Fra

And that's why I hardly watch sport anymore on TV anyway. I stopped watching Sky or BT Sport because I like to watch my sport without being preached to every 30 seconds about political issues. Sorry but just being honest.
You don't have to apologise for not like viewing people who take a stand against racism.

Being a racist is not political, it's personal choice, it just shows a clear lack of inner confidence, an insular mind, one lacking any moral fibre.

I'm sure Sky, BT, ITV, BBC or any person on this globe who supports the eradication of racism won't miss you
