Again for balance (not that I am Scottish!) a small minority in the Murrayfield crowd.

We arenít the bbc and donít need a for balance argument

It doesnít matter that it was a small minority.

1 person doing it is bad enough.

1 person from either nation doing it is not needed.
Eddie Jones got a hard time of the Scots a couple of years back and now this.

Thereís no need and the SRU and itís players need to be making strong statements about the values of the game and how we are there to enjoy the fierce competition but never to let it spill to anger and even hatred.

I totally agree that one person misbehaving is bad enough. But that means behaviour is below standard at just about every international, professional and semi-pro game in the UK.

Taring everyone in the crowd with the same brush is silly in my opinion which is why I made the point which EF seems to agree with.

I'd love the SRU to make the points you suggest. And I love the RFU to make the same points to Ludlam.

Well the SRU will need to have that chat with some of their guys as well.

I donít agree that is needed though.

The players on both sides didnít stoke up the nasty behaviour seen at Murrayfield yesterday.

Iím not going to agree with you on this notion that every game across the land is the same as yesterdayís game.

At the Falcons some people talk during a kick but Iíve not heard booing

This isnít a time for claiming that itís okay cos the behaviour is all around.

The SRU need to be strong and make it clear that entry to Murrayfield is reliant on respect being shown to the kickers and anti social behaviour being left at the door no matter what.
