Cheers Dan

Scotland Rugby’s newly retired stand-off, Dan Parks, seems to be taking some stick for leaving the international game after having something of a howler against England rather than before it. Unfair. He didn’t pick himself, the coach did, and he didn’t rip the starting jersey from the hands of a younger, fitter, and now better player, the coach did that too. Remembering that Parks carried the side through the 2010 international season and won three man-of-the-match awards out of five, he should be leaving with our thanks ringing in his ears, not complaints that he played one game too many.

    You are so right. We’ve seen Dan at Murrayfield many times, he has had good games and bad games, but haven’t they all? It’s a shame he felt he had to go when he did, but good luck to him…and the Scotland team for the future

    Unfortunately you are only as good as your last game, but remember Ireland in 2011. Who was the hero then?

    Now that the Wales game has come and gone, were we the better for Dan’s departure? Not as far as I could see. Will ye no’ come back again?
