Oh Scotland!
« on: Oct 29, 2022, 07:45:08 PM »
Talk about a masterclass in how to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Scotland had enough opportunities to win comfortably, but somehow managed to lose to Australia 15-16. Giving away 18 (!) penalties, most of them silly, missing a couple of reasonably easy kicks at goal - perhaps they were feeling guilty at Scotland's links with the slave trade and the convict settlements - can't see any other real reason
Thank you for the days, the days you gave me.

oh, and on second thoughts, it was three reasonably easy kicks, not two
