Glasgow Warriors forward Scott Cummings

Glasgow second row Scott Cummings has given the Danny Wilson regime a vote of confidence by signing an unspecified length, multi-year contract with the Warriors who have struggled for results since the ex-Cardiff coach took over from Dave Rennie.

The 24-year-old has been involved in 17 consecutive Test matches with Scotland across the World Cup, 2020 Guinness Six Nations and the 2020 Autumn Nations Cup and his contract renewal at Glasgow comes ahead of next weekend’s PRO14 return-to-action derby against Edinburgh at Murrayfield.

Cummings told glasgowwarriors.org: “Staying at Glasgow was quite an easy decision for me. Getting to play for the club that I grew up supporting is an amazing feeling. We have got a great, hard-working group of guys that want to push on.

“I have really enjoyed the past six years at the club. There is nothing better than running out at Scotstoun when the stadium is packed and I can’t wait until it’s safe to welcome fans back to match nights at Scotstoun.

“I still feel like this team has the ability to push on and compete with the best teams in Europe. I just want to continue enjoying my rugby with Glasgow and represent this club and this city as best I can.”

Glasgow boss Wilson added: “Scott is a good athlete and someone with a fantastic rugby brain. Having worked with him when I was with Scotland, I knew how talented an individual he is. From my experience at Scotland and Glasgow, I’ve been increasingly impressed with the absolute hunger and desire Scott has to push himself to be the best rugby player he can be.

“I’m excited about the potential that Scott has and we are delighted that he has chosen to extend his contract with us. He is a proud Glaswegian and is someone that will do whatever it takes to help this club succeed.”

Why the world needs a reverse Lions tour

I think there’s a lot of reasons this wouldn’t work, but if we’re just proposing fun things how about a “World Series” held the june/july following a world cup. The teams competing each four years would be: the current world champions The Pacific Islands The British & Irish Lions The World XV Barbarians FC to ensure all teams are fairly evenly matched, the current world champions would name their squad first; then The Pacific Islands would name next, and would be able to select any pacific qualified players not selected by the world champions, including players already “captured” by non-pacific nations who would otherwise have been eligible for selection (eg. Bundee Aki); the Lions would select next; and then The World XV and Barbarians FC would be left to fight over anyone not selected. Some people will point out that 5 teams is too many for a mid-year round robin, particularly as it would be nice to have a final as well; and they would be right! But because we’re just having fun here we’re going to innovate an entirely new format for rugby, where the round robin is played in one stadium over the course of one day, with each game lasting just 40 minutes with no half time or change of ends. The round robin decides the seedings for the knockouts, which are contested by all 5 teams in one stadium over the course of one day, according to the following schedule: Knockout Round 1: seed 5 v seed 4 (contested over 1 half of indetermined length, finishing when one team reaches 7 points) ~ 10 minute break ~ Quarter Final: winner of Round 1 v seed 3 (contested over 1 half of indetermined length, finishing when one team reaches 7 points) ~ 10 minute break ~ Semi Final: winner of Quarter Final v seed 2 (contested over 1 half of indetermined length, finishing when one team reaches 7 points) ~ 10 minute break ~ Final: winner of Semi Final v seed 1 (played as a standard 80 minute rugby match) for the round robin, teams would name a 15 man starting lineup and a 16 man bench. Substitutions during games can only be made for injuries, but any number of substitutions can be made between games. The same rules apply for the finals, except that we return to having a regular 8 man bench, and would allow substitutions as normal during the 80 minute final.

Is the Six Nations balance of power shifting?

There are a few issues with the article. Despite somehow getting to a RWC semi final, England are nowhere near Probable status and should be swapped with Scotland on current form. France’s failure at RWC 23 has massively hit their mindset. Psychologically, they need a reset of gigantic proportions otherwise they will revert to, Top 14 first, international rugby an afterthought again. Ireland are allowed to play the way they are by less than acceptable officiating. Make no bones about it, with Easterby coaching, Ireland cheat, they break the rules at almost every facet of the game and generally referees, influenced by the media that Ireland are somehow playing the best rugby in the world, allow them. Scrums - Porter never pushes straight and immediately turns in. The flankers lose their binds and almost latch on to the opposition props. Rucks - they always and I mean always clear out from the side and take players out beyond the ball, effectively taking them out of being ready for the next phase. Not once do green shirts enter rucks from the rear foot. Referees should be made to look at the video of the game against Wales and see that Irish backs and forwards happily enter rucks from the side to effect a clearout, thus giving them the sub 3 second ruck speed everybody dreams about. They also stand in offside positions at rucks to ‘block’ opposing players from making clear tackles allowing the ball carrier to break the gainline almost every time. They then turn and are always ahead of play and therefore enter subsequent rucks illegally. Mauls - there is always a blocker between the ball catcher and the opposition. It is subtle but it is there. Gatland still needs to break the shackles and allow his team a bit more freedom to play rugby. He no longer has a team of 16 stone plus players who batter the gainline. He has to adapt and be more thoughtful in attack. Scotland are playing well but they have the creaky defence that leaks tries.
