      Scotland play Argentine Tonga, and the All Blacks during November, not a sniff of any of the games. Have Sky barred Scotland or vice-versa? Fortunately Auntie Beeb is covering them.

      I doubt that Sky would be that silly. Banning the Scottish Rugby team! If only they'd reconsidered allowing Argentina though.
