Go Scotland! Beat Wales 23-19!

Hopefully not a sign of things to come in the game but the shooting practice has the ball flying over the net and into the fans! yikes!
The wind has picked up somewhat, it`s rather dull overhead but hopefully it doesn`t batter the hell oot of this stand and gets those home fans instead.
The Pars fans are filling up the south stand now - we got here a tad early and after a wee jaunt doon Easter Road it was still afore half four when we came into the stand.
