9am Briefing: Hibs boss backs attacking game

Hibs boss John Hughes insists he was right to play an attacking formation and go for it in the 3-0 defeat at Ibrox rather than playing conservatively and hoping to get something from the match.

The real Black's back

Hearts goal hero Ian Black says the arrival of Jim Jefferies as boss has given him a lift and helped him recapture the sort of form he showed at Caley Thistle, which persuaded the Tynecastle side to sign him in the first place.

Missing in action

Scotland will be missing three crucial players for the rest of the Six Nations with Chris Paterson (kidney), Thom Evans (neck) and Rory Lamont (knee) all ruled after the heart-breaking loss in Cardiff.
