Gregor Townsend insists Saturday’s dispiriting defeat to Wales in the opening match of the Six Nations was not a true reflection of his Scotland side. The 34-7 defeat in Cardiff provided a reality check to the visitors, who had been looking to start their Championship campaign with a long-awaited away victory over their hosts.
Scotland will play for the ‘Doddie Weir Cup’ against Wales after adding a fourth international fixture to their Autumn Test series later this year. Weir, the 47-year-old former Scotland second-row, has recently been diagnosed with motor neurone disease and the match will raise awareness for his charity. The game will be played on November 3 in Cardiff, before each nation faces three southern hemisphere teams in the autumn Tests.
Ruaridh Jackson knew what was in store when he decided to adopt the Three Musketeers look by cultivating a magnificent moustache and beard. It looked particularly apt when he rode to the rescue of both Scotland and Glasgow Warriors this season in the absence of the equally swashbuckling Scott Hogg. When the world-class full back was ruled out for at least two months with a hip injury in November, fans of the Scotstoun club were rightly concerned over who could fill his boots.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
