tried to win the game. you know, we want to be brave and played two upfront when mccann, i like that formation, but it still has to work. after about 20 minutes we can't the game down. good reaction to their goal, i don't think there was any panic in the team, they played nice and solid, played how we wanted to play to disrupt them and cause problems and i think we did that. rangers are into the last eight of the scottish cup after coming from behind to beat greenock morton. there were a few shaky moments at the back for last seasons beaten finalists, but after kenny miller got an equaliser, martyn waghorn won it for rangers — in what was their first match following the departure of manager mark warburton on friday. scottish cup holders, hibernian will face a fifth round replay after a goalless draw with edinburgh rivals, hearts. the best opportunity fell to bjornjohnsen, unfortunately for him and the hearts fans, marciano was equal to the effort in the hibernian goal. 0—0 the final score. this weekend's six nations action culminated in defeat for scotland

7:42 pm
tommy seymour took a punt, and his luck was in. so too was tim swinson. now a chance for two extra points. missed. finn russell's kick would have been emphatic in football but it was embarrassing in rugby. france took their chance, 16—16, less than 15 minutes left. the french urged to the line, they went to the brink, no drive. no escape for scotland. camille lopez knocked it over. in the land of the giants, scotland's task was simply too big. it was a physical encounter. quite a few times we came off second best. but i thought the boys stuck in really well defensively and defended oui’ really well defensively and defended our line well and scored a couple of tries, just at critical times perhaps we weren't accurate enough. we will have a good look at that before moving to the next game. ireland's women lead the way in the six nations standings after they beat italy in l'aquila.
