Allan Massie: Is little Murrayfield a bit too little?

Anyone who dips into the comment sections on rugby websites knows that a huge number of posts will be moans and grumbles, often angry ones, about the regulations covering qualification for national teams. Accusations fly to and fro, amidst assertions that my country is more virtuous than yours. Criticisms are often ill-judged because the regulations have not apparently been understood.

Allan Massie: Repairs needed at Glasgow as inter-city rivals rise

Impossible to pretend that Glasgow’s defeat last week wasn’t very disappointing. Things went wrong from the start with Ryan Wilson’s hot-headed concession of a penalty straight from the kick-off. Wilson is a fine player and, by all accounts, a good and respected leader, but this was daft and irresponsible.

It was a bad night for Scottish rugby all round. Not only did Glasgow lose the semi-final, and with it their unbeaten home record in the Pro14 this season, but they lost Zander Fagerson to a first-half injury
and Scotland captain John Barclay also limped off the pitch with a painful looking ankle injury which the warm cheers of the Scotstoun crowd will have done little to alleviate.
