I'd just like to add my thoughts on this.

I'm a Scotland fan but stopped trying to get tickets for this match several years ago because of the atmosphere. It appears to be one of those games which attracts non rugby fans just because of who is playing.

The last time I went was about 8 years ago. Sat behind a group of England "fans" dressed as knights, who had no idea about anything to do with the game. They were constantly swearing and being boorish. A genuine England fan sat a couple of seats along politely asked them to calm things down as there was children around. Their reply was along the lines of "F off, we're on the p**s" The stewards asked them to settle down, which they did for about 2 seconds. I'm not sure what happened to them, but they didn't come back at half time.

Unfortunately this is becoming more common from both sides. Something needs to be done to stop it spreading as children will see it and start copying. I wouldn't be surprised if at lot of the booing on Saturday was youngsters hearing an adult do it and thinking it's ok to do.

I still go to watch Scotland play other teams where I find most of the crowd are genuine rugby fans.
