FORMER Scotland flanker and hard-hitting rugby journalist Iain Morrison and The Offside Line’s David Barnes join host Jack Reid to look back on a first win in Wales for 18 years and a generally promising (if extraordinarily long) Six Nations campaign for Gregor Townsend’s men, then look ahead at what has to happen next if the boys in blue are to continue moving in the right direction.

How significant was that success in Llanelli? Can Scotland’s pack stand toe-to-toe with the best of the rest in the Six Nations? Does world domination beckon for Gregor Townsend’s men? Can Scotland survive the possible double loss of Finn Russell and Adam Hastings? Why do people think Ali Pice is too slow? How important is the captain in international rugby?
