This weekend we are playing Scotland and we know that they are very keen to come to Twickenham and prove a point. They are a dangerous side with some big physical players up front. In many ways they are where England were a little while ago, under new management looking to build solid foundations and progress from there. There have been a few things that have been said from their camp reported in the press, we know they are determined to end their losing streak and we are ready to face them.
The game is different. It is a different generation, and yes they are bigger, faster, stronger, and I am bloody grateful that I am in the stand or watching safely on TV! It is not for me to say whether it is better, just as when I was playing it was not right to say that our game was better than that played by such genuine legends as Duckham, Bennett, JPR, Edwards and Slattery etc.
