Robinson blameless for Scotland's troubles
The accepted argument is that Scotland coach Andy Robinson is under pressure and that he will walk away should results go against him.
The beauty of a blog is that you can say what you think, so here goes: if Robinson walks it's a cop out, but I think results will improve before that has to happen.
You can't blame Robinson for Scotland's opening losses in this year's Six Nations. He may have made selection errors, but I can live with that.
If he goes he'll be making a big mistake; if Scotland sack him they are making a big mistake.
He's good enough to be the British Lions forwards coach as that is where his real strength lies.
I see better ruck clear outs, a more abrasive attitude, better offloading, more enterprise, and a higher tempo under Robinson.
I watched the game against Wales and that was Scotland and their players playing to their limit. If you were to design a gameplan to suit Scotland then that was it.
An early second-half mistake and then two yellow cards weren't Robinson's fault.
We always blame coaches, especially Scotland rugby team coaches, but he's been let down by players in key moments.
That game in Cardiff was as intense a Scottish performance as I've seen in recent years: planned and executed with precision.
Andy Robinson is aiming to improve Scotland's Six Nations fortunes
The World Cup wasn't managed properly and I believe selection and substitution errors were made there as well.
And little has been made of failing to qualify for the knockout stages, but I wonder if anyone might have managed these first two games any better.
I've spoken to Andy on a handful of occasions and he has one quality that I like: he's blunt.
You know that what you get to your face is what he thinks, unless it's on TV where few people give you the whole truth anyway.
The TV pictures of his furrowed brow hint at an, at times, anguished man who is much more intense than the happy-go-lucky interviews might suggest.
Like all coaches he's loyal to the players who have helped him along the way.
Perhaps the easiest thing for us as "watchers" is to believe that our players are among the best and should be winning most of their games.
History suggests that the Robinson's win ratio in test matches to date, 50%, lags only behind Bill Dickinson in the 1970's at 52%, Ian McGeechan in the late 1980s and early nineties with 58%, and Jim Telfer with 52% in the mid 80s.
Interestingly, he's fared better than in Telfer's second spell: 40% and McGeechan's second spell, 42% both about 10 years ago; and a fair bit better than Matt Williams at 18%; Frank Hadden at 39%; and Nairn McEwan in the 70's with 7%.
And you might argue that it's more difficult to win rugby games now as smaller teams become stronger.
So, I get the feeling that he's doing OK and that there aren't many coaches in the world who would get a better performance out of his players than him.
This is a big game against France; Robinson's picked the best players, they are principally coached at their clubs and he has given them a shape.
If Scotland beat France on Sunday then Robinson should rightly be praised, if we lose I actually don't think it's his fault.
And if he walks away it's actually a cop out as his influence should extend more to both professional teams and our grass roots.
But, hey, what do I know? What do you think?
