comments:
well.... a somewhat predictable squad... although the selections of
McIlwham, Dall, and to a lesser extent Henderson are worrying... the lack of
props in Scotland is a serious problem indeed... i'm assuming that Matthew
Proudfoot is on standby in SA should any of the three named be injured... a
bit disappointed that Andrew Wilson or Allister Hogg weren't named, but they
may be injured as well... looks like the Scots' tough year will only get
tougher

cheers,
