Ohhhh Flower of Scotland: Scotland 9 Vs Australia 8. Yipeeee. by 


Final Score Scotland 9 Australia 8.

Ahhh well I might as well admit it. It was 9 – 8 really:-) But it should have been 9 – 3. LOL.

What a fantastic game of Rugby. Scotland played the best defensive game I’ve ever seen. Australia had more posession, were in Scotland’s half for most of the game, but Scotland’s strong defence won the day. Australia almost stole the match in the last few seconds by scoring a well deserved try, but failed to convert. If they had Scotland would have been defeated. But praise the Lord, Australia missed and now Scotland have won for the first time in over 20 years against Australia at Murryfield Edinburgh Scotland.

P.S. I watched the match on TV and almost cried when Australia scored that final try. Ahhhhhh. What a great game though.

O flower of Scotland,
When will we see, your like again,
That fought and died for,
Your wee bit hill, and glen,
And stood against them,
Proud Edward’s army,
And sent him homeward, Tae think again.

Those hills are bare now,
And Autumn leaves, lie thick and still,
For land that is lost now,
But oh so dearly held,
We stood against him,
Proud Edward’s army,
And sent him homeward, Tae think again.

Those days are passed now,
And in the past they must remain,
But we can still rise now,
And be the nation again,
That stood against him,
Proud Edward’s army,
And sent him homeward, Tae think again.,

Those hills are bare now,
And Autumn leaves, lie thick and still,
For land that is lost now,
But oh so dearly held,…. .

    Waiting for Olympics here…

    Great collage Don! And congratulations on the win! Thank you for submitting this work to the Cards for Everday group!

  • Thank you so much for that my friend. I’m sure some Scottish supporters will long to get their hands on one, it’s a real victory and history in the making. Cheers, Don.

    Scotland played their socks off. A fair result in the end, but at 9-8, it was close. Good tribute Don …

  • I but they robbed us at the end so I’m stickin with 9 3 to get up some noses:) LOL. Don.

  • Hi Tom, you’ll see I’ve put the right score on now:-) It was fun whilst it lasted. Did you manage to see the game? What a cracker.

    We like different sports Don and speak different languages. It’s Vancouver in my hockey world :)))
    Thank god they chose London! What a stupid idea that was to have NYC on the list…
    Don’t tell anyone but I was one of thousand performers at opening and closing ceremonies in Moscow ’80 :) Shhhh

  • Don’t tell anyone? You should be shouting that from the rooftops. WOW! What a thrill that would be. I was at the opening of the Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh singing with my School Choir. Don’t know why they had me though, I couldn’t really sing that well:-) LOL. Just havin kids singing I suppose. Still it was awesome to be a part of such a big event. You’ll be soooooooo proud of that when you get older and tell the grandkids. I’ve got some stories too:-) LOL.

    Can’t find the un-favourite button!!! might have to suggest one ;) well done

  • Ha Ha, did you see the game? It was a stunner. The Wallabies played a fantastic game, always attacking and trying their best, but I’m soooooo pleased the Scots finally got their defence together. I was sad that they couldn’t really muster a convincing attack though. 9-8 really, and you couldn’t get much closer than that. I’m sure we’ll be back to normal next time:-) Don.

    I was 10y.o. We were not allowed to talk to anyone or go anywhere… I have no pictures or videos with me in it. Only the memories. I was a dancer. Still was a pretty awesome experience :)

  • In the 1980s the Cold War was still on, I was serving on HM Submarines at the time, and we were somewhere just off the coast of Russia a few hundred feed down. but ssssshhhhh don’t tell anyone:-) Don.

    I did see the game Don. Scotland played well, but at the end, they stayed lucky (thank goodness) …

  • Ha Ha, I know what you mean Tom. It would have been a very different story if they had converted. Don.
