Just a really quick one from me to express my gratitude to – and appreciation for – the great folks at the Scottish Rugby Union.

I’ve been privileged to enjoy the Murrayfield hospitality on two occasions now and must extend warmest thanks to the SRU (and their generous sponsors EMC) for the open, friendly and caring way in which they conduct themselves and deal with visiting media.

I’ve been to other stadia in the world where visiting press are treated with a level of mistrust and coolness, completely at odds with the ‘family’ concept that is one of Rugby Union’s most treasured and sacred tenets, yet when it comes to the Scots, it’s like you’re stepping back in time, to a magical place where professionalism and ‘business’ haven’t conspired to sully the brotherhood and camaraderie that set our game apart.

A big thanks in particular to Murrayfield Communications Assistant Cameron McAllister for all his help on the day.

Murrayfield – and Edinburgh in general – are both such special places for a rugby fan and if you go to one foreign stadium before you die, make this the one!
