scotland vs new zealand (kickoff 11:00am)

scotland surely face a mountain of a challenge in beating the all backs (that's their real name) at murrayfield, in edinburgh today. scotland coach, frank hadden has not only this game to consider, but also next week's match-up against italy. in short, i think he's conceding this game in an attempt to produce a side that is fresh and strong as possible for the azzurri. this tournament is all about reaching the quarter finals...

as much as i'm rooting for scotland (and me an englishman!), i can't see the best team playing rugby in the world right now failing to take apart scotland, even if the game is being played on home turf.
