Scottish power can upset new-look England
What team will Andy Robinson pick to play England and what are the right tactics for Scotland?
Oh, and for what it's worth, I think this new-look England team will have no sense of "arrogance" when they come to Murrayfield on Saturday.
But the visitors will have to fight that sense of being caught in the headlights that has forced teams wearing the rose to founder when they might otherwise have won in Edinburgh in the past.
We Scots like to believe that England's weaknesses are a combination of arrogance and over-confidence.
But the reality is that England's more recent flaws have been stodginess, predictability, lack of conditioning among the older and lazier players, and fear. You can sometimes watch an English team go into its shell and start to question itself. And then they lose.
OK, let's look at a possible Scotland team selection. There are sharp choices to be made between established players and newcomers, but only in certain positions. So, here goes. And one of my guesses is a first cap for Lee Jones, the former Selkirk winger.
Can Scotland get to grips with a new-look England team at Murrayfield?
The first two members of the front row, Alan Jacobsen and Ross Ford are probably certainties as one is the new captain and the other his trusted lieutenant. The tight-head prop could be Geoff Cross who has been outstanding, but my guess is that Robinson will pick Ewan Murray for his scrummaging bulk.
Not naming Al Kellock as captain suggests big Al won't start, so it will be Jim Hamilton and Richie Gray in partnership in the second row.
In the back row there are more options. Richie Vernon isn't starting for Sale so will probably miss out and Kelly Brown is injured. Then there is a battle royal between the open-side wing forwards; Ross Rennie and John Barclay.
Robinson will likely seek to partner Al Strokosh and Barclay at either side of the back row and bring in David Denton at number eight. I can't pick between Rennie and Barclay but perhaps the more experienced man, Barclay, will get the nod.
In the backs it gets very interesting. Mike Blair and Greig Laidlaw have been instrumental in Edinburgh's recent Heineken Cup run but I think pragmatism will rule the day and Chris Cusiter's performances against Edinburgh in his head-to-head with Blair and the ability of Dan Parks to slot goals and make ground could edge them ahead as a pairing.
What to do with the midfield? Graeme Morrison is a key player but I think Sean Lamont will start at 12 with Jo Ansbro at 13. That leaves Rory Lamont at full-back and Max Evans on one wing.
What about the other wing? You pick players on form and Edinburgh dynamo Lee Jones is red hot right now.
That's my guess. Jacobsen, Ford, Murray, Hamilton, Gray, Strokosh, Denton, Barclay, Cusiter, Parks, Evans, Lamont, Ansboro, Jones and Lamont.
Now for tactics. Scotland need to get the English, some of whom won't have played under the floodlights at Murrayfield, distinctly upset.
If England think they have the power advantage, then it should be rolling mauls to persuade them that they don't, with Richie Gray, David Denton and Jim Hamilton running at them to invite them to remember their tackling technique.
Add to that mix the Lamont brothers and you begin to see that this is a very powerful Scottish team.
In our own danger area Parks will clear territory and, no matter the weather, my suspicion is that there will be more of a smash-up game than in the past.
All designed to force the English to become predicable, stodgy, and more and more scared.
Thank you, oh force of nature, for bringing the Six Nations around again. it's my reason for living - which started as a kid with a glass of milk and a ham and mustard roll listening to Bill McLaren.
I think Scotland will win, but as it's in the future and I don't have a flux capacitor I can't be sure. All I know is that my band is playing in Edinburgh at night time.
Right, you pick your team and tell me who you think will win.
