Almost nobody thinks Scotland will win today. This isn’t surprising. Even in good times when Murrayfield was a fortress we have always found it difficult to win away from home. That ever-memorable 34-18 victory in Cardiff in 1982 was the first time the great Jim Renwick had played in an away Five Nations win – ten years after his first cap. Yet he had played in teams with other greats like Andy Irvine, Gordon Brown, Billy Steele, Ian McGeechan, John Rutherford, Roy Laidlaw, Ian McLauchlan – all Lions. So while we oldies may dream of a repeat of that 1982 game when the spark was lit by Roger Baird’s audacious decision to run from our own 22,the odds, one confesses, are against it.
