After today it surely is time for a change at scrum half as Cawdor is really struggling. His game management and decision making is really poor at the moment and we looked a far more dangerous team with Jonny at SH. Whether GD is trying too hard not sure but he blew 2 or 3 try scoring opportunities today and isn’t the player he was back in January.

SHD played well for Edinburgh until he was taken off too. Should be really interesting for next season. I would probably start with Jonny against Glasgow and have Cawdor on the bench.

Cawdor was not that bad tonight. He has a bit of white line fever but hey he has a bit of X factor and for that he fits into pivacs style.

Thought he played OK , good in a high tempo game but then perhaps there is more chance of some mistakes but also can be very effective in such a fast game.

His pass is better than Evans, but his kicking is not top drawer..

He was dreadful .
Indecisive, slow, taking wrong options, and his kicking was terrible.
 
He needs a break and Jonathan Evans to start for me in the semi.
 
I wonder if Bernard will write a piece on how bad Cawdor was last night Wink

He was touched hard in different situations at the begin of the match...maybe his performance was influenced or he had sub before...

His 'white line fever' was a little irritating, and cost us possibly two further scores.

You must have watched a different game to me. He was very poor in all aspects.

Have a look at the game again. He wasn't at his best but he was fully committed and abrasive in attack and even more so in defence. He is an extra back rower and in the first half when the opposition is fresh his workrate cannot be faulted. There is no point in having two identical scrum halves in the same match day squad. One size does not fit all and by having contrasting scrum halves the opposition has bigger problems to solve. The only scrum half approaching perfection is Connor Murray and he makes the odd mistake in every game he plays. Let's be grateful for what we've got.
Keep the faith

Murray tends to overuse the box kick, he is a great 9, he does not possess the speed and running threat of Cawdor. Lets leave cawdors decision making to him. If in the blink of an eye he sees an opportunity then lets reward him. Would hate to see the situation where a player is frightened to make a decision and take the safe option.

Looked to me like he was trying too hard. Looked like he was trying to force things. Just a little patience needed. Let the pack do it’s job and those half chances that he is a master at exploiting will be a little more forthcoming.

Have to agree but thankfully it made no difference in the end.

There is something about Jonny Evans though, once he came he did look sharp, some nice touches and nice try.
