A more determined Scottish side eventually saw off a decent, spirited but disjointed Azzurri. Indeed, part of the Italian issue was shown in the initial 18 minutes where they had 8 missed tackles and 4 handling errors. In total they conceded some 13 turnovers throughout the game. Parisse and Campagnaro were singularly the only stand outs for Italy. Tries from Barclay, Hardy & Seymour and a superb solo 21 points from Greg Laidlaw sealed the game and saw Scotland comfortably home.

An avid Leinster & Ireland Rugby fan, he came to rugby at the late age of 24, was a tight head prop, had at least 2 good runs in every game and retired at only 36 after 3 operations on his legs and now forms the 4th "virtual" person in a front row each time his beloved teams are playing (much to the annoyance of his suffering girlfriend who has to put up with being "embraced" by the Big Fella at each scrum!!!)
