FOLLOWING on from the heroic work of Mike Westwood of Aberdeen Wanderers Youth RFC in contributing to The Offside Line’s live blog for the Calcutta Cup match three weeks ago, and Mark Anderson of the Scottish Rugby Away Tours Forum in Rome last weekend, we are now looking for a plucky volunteer to be ‘Our Voice in the Crowd’ for this coming weekend’s Six Nations denouement in Dublin.

Its going to be a tough mission for Gregor Townsend‘s side as they hunt a first win in the city since 2010, and their first win at the Aviva Stadium (previously Lansdowne Road) since 1998, to ensure they don’t end up with a disappointing bottom half of the table finish. Can they bounce back from their Roman catastrophe?

They are up against an Ireland side who will be spitting nails after their defeat to England last weekend, a result which cost them the chance of a Grand Slam, although they are still comfortable front-runners to win the title this year and will be desperate to right a few wrongs this Saturday.

Add into the mix that this is St Patrick’s weekend and there won’t be any shortage of talking points and colourful events to report on!



Have you got what it takes to provide regular updates of your experience as a fan throughout the build-up, duration and aftermath of the match, to be published as part of our live blog for the weekend?

We’re looking for one of our readers to help give a flavour of the city as the tartan hordes descend on Dublin on Thursday and/or Friday, then a sense of the mood in the stadium as the action plays out on the pitch on Saturday. We’ll publish regular observations and photographs of what is going on around you.

As well as featuring on the blog, you’ll also win a bottle of Kerr’s Gin courtesy of our official Six Nations coverage partners, part GB of the Borders Distillery group.


To enter, simply email us at confirming your name, age, contact mobile number, and that you have a valid ticket for the for Ireland versus Scotland game at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Saturday 16th March.

We will pick one winner at random and call to chat through all the details … plus organise your gin delivery!
