Townsend is a complete one trick pony. Hasn't got a clue and hasn't changed his game plan since he took over.

Laidlaw, Russell, Peter Horne, Sam Johnstone, Chris Harris - FuckMe

Even Stuart Hogg - getting past their sell by date.

Aye, he’s an Edinburgh lad. A rare genuine world class Scottish athlete May Bee

Time for Toonie to go. He’s taken a decent group of players backwards with his stubbornness. It’s been pretty much constant failure since he arrived.

Russell and Johnson are two of the best players we’ve had in my lifetime ffs. Perhaps the blame should lie with the chuff that was instructing him to constantly kick away possession.

They were. Townsend has ruined them. All Russell wants to do is fucking kick the ball away - there's no inventiveness any more. They/we're easy to play against - press hard passed the gain line and don't give them any space. Our solution is always (it seems) to kick it away.

It's old rugby and Townsend is coaching it like he used to play.

Fair play to japan, I’m sure the country could do with a bit of a lift after the weather they’ve had.

They looked good, didn’t realise they had beaten Ireland too Laugh

We’ve got a world class 10 which should be half the battle, and Townsend is wasting him with poor tactics and baffling team selections.

Realistically we’re not anywhere near winning a Six Nations under Townsend so need to make major changes now and build towards 2023. Wonder if Dave Rennie would fancy it, but he might not be planning to stick around in this part of the world that long.

There are a lot of exciting young players coming through so we have to be ruthless in binning a lot of the old guard who won’t be around in 4 years. Work on a back three of Hogg, Kinghorn and Graham and start giving minutes to Hutchison or Stafford McDowall to play in the centres with Johnson.
