All the News of the World Comment on Scotland's victory in the last ever Five Nations Rugby Championship
Tuesday 13 April 1999
GIVEN WE had a different team from last year, and some overtired players, our entire team collapsed.The marvellous wins of last season were just a faint memory and we still hadn't scored by half time. Wales and Scotland, last year severely punished by our team, obtained their revenge this time round. But what caused this metamorphosis? Perhaps it's this creatine they all seem to be taking. More probably it is the fact that they are importing foreign players - Wales now boasts a former All Black, and the Scottish have adopted three New Zealanders for themselves.

AS THE decider between Wales and England in the Five Nations went to the wire, and favourites England won a crucial scrum, Bill McLaren, the Voice of Rugby told millions of viewers: "It's Scotland's put-in." Our Bravehearts weren't even there but, minutes later, the whole nation rejoiced to a famous Scottish triumph. The Welsh win means we will be the last nation engraved on the Five Nations trophy - next year, with Italy joining, it will be known as the Six Nations.
