I took no photos so that I could pay attention to the game. But the GX40 sound recording unit would have been a better choice as, if you are interested in hearing the sound of sides of beef being crashed into each other, international rugby could be your game. The game yesterday here in Kingston was a great exhibition with a few hidden punches in the scrum, a shoving match likely arising from am comment about someone's relative in Buenos Aires, a very obvious use of cleats to rake the upper body of an opponent as well as a very nifty behind the back pass leading to the second Scots try:
It was the 16th minute that bore good news for Scotland when winger Andrew Turnbull shot over the line. As the ball worked its way from left to right, Dewey took on his man and passed to Turnbull behind his back, much to the delight of the ex-pats and neutrals in the stands. David Blair hit the left post with his conversion attempt.We two in Scotland rugby shirts were noted. Fab. Apart from the incessant chatter about the kids' hockey team from people near us who seemed to know nothing of the game playing out in front of them, it was a perfect game.
Note to file: Argentina's national anthem is stirring and heroic but oddly disorganized. Lots of references to Argentina, though. The senior gent next to me noted the Scots one, "Flower of Scotland" was rather peely-waally - which I took to mean lame. The bit about the past remaining in the past seems rather culturally inappropriate.
