Scott Gray Back for Scotland Squad

Rory BaldwinCorrespondent IJanuary 27, 2010

Flanker Scott Gray has been called up to the Scotland squad to cover Rennie and the big Stroker who are still suffering from knocks.

What, no Roddy Grant?

Gray has been mostly on the bench this season so who knows if he is in the same form that displaced John Barclay last year or not. He should get more chances now that Neil Best is moving to Worcester. Still, I reckon Grant would have been a cheaper train fare for the SRU’s budget to stump up… from the BBC

Richie Gray is also sitting out training after being so omnipresent vs Biarritz that Jerome Thion had to punch him in the face to make him stop, breaking his nose in the process. A citing is on the way… from the Scotsman

Edinburgh MSP Sarah Boyack has hammered BBC Scotland over its unwillingness to cover Scottish rugby.

Quite right too now that Heather the Weather has gone Reporting Scotland is pish, unless there is rugby in the sports bit and even then it’s only five seconds less pish.

Who cares who Kilmarnock has just signed?

Apart from Kilmarnockians, obviously,write to your MSP/MP and tell them to get on the case, that you are a single issue voter, that issue is rugby, and if they don’t sort it out they are fired in May… from the Scotsman.

I’ve also got a preview piece up on scrum.com 6 Nations fanzone . The drums in the jungle tell me Al may be working on the SRBlog version shortly…
