>What happened to Kevin McKenzie the pocket battleship as Bill McLaren
>likes to call him?
Kevin McKenzie, the long-time Stirling Country captain and former
Scottish ***, injured his neck a couple years ago, and after a
couple comeback attempts decided to hang up his boots. Too bad, he was
a lot of fun to watch, and even more fun with Billy announcing.
>Interested to see how Metcalfe gets on on Sunday. 7' 1" is a monster.
Even if he's "only" 20.5 stones. Hope he goes well, he's been
impressive with Northampton.
>Where's Fairley, who understudied Armstrong last year whilst Redpath was
Fairley has pretty much dropped off the charts these days. Both Graeme
Beveridge and Graeme Burns are now ahead of him, based more on their
distribution abilities and quickness. Fairley is a better overral
footballer though, so I'd think he'll make his way back.
>I think Logan is toast now. Craig Joiner is more likely, or James Craig.
Logan has been toast before though, and he really isn't that bad a
winger. This kicking job that he's been wrongly given has really
screwed him up quite badly. If he'd just be given the chance to play
wing and forget the rest he'd be doing much better.
As for Joiner or James Craig, they certainly bring more pace than
Kenny or Shaun Longstaff. Not sure about James' defense, but Joiner
has been doing quite well for Leicester (John Williams could say more
about that) and I've always been impressed with his offensive talents.
One guy I'd like to see one of these days is Rory Kerr. Like James
Craig, he's not the strongest lad, but he's got incredible pace and
good footballing skills. Actually, I'm a bit biased because I've
played against him (and eaten dirt while trying to make an ankle-tap
tackle....) on a tour to Scotland and he really thrashed us.

Ask anyone I know and they'll tell you I'm a rugby looney. If I put
half of the effort I put in rugby into my schooling, I'd be getting
straight A's instead of my B's and C's... they keep telling me I've
got to get my priorities straight. I think they're fine the way they
The real problem with this disease is that I'm Canadian and most
people here can't even spell rugby, so I have to spend half my life on
the internet to get a half-decent conversation in :)
It's really quite odd, I think, that my girlfriend hates rugby so
