Allan Massie: Selkirk the stand-out club of year
THERE have been some odd features in the Six Nations so far. Ireland, playing with intelligence and admirable composure, sit at the top of the table with three victories. They haven’t really been stretched yet. It is curious, however, that in the try-scoring table they lie fifth, ahead only of France. Scotland, despite having lost all three matches, have scored four tries to Ireland’s three. Wales have also scored four, Italy six and England eight. Anyone who thinks the game is, or should be, all about scoring tries, should be scratching their head. Incidentally, nine of the 27 tries scored in the tournament to date came in the England-Italy match at Twickenham.
