Six Nations 2018
« on: February 02, 2018, 12:31:08 PM »
This has crept up on me this year...

Some interesting potential match ups with the Welsh (and to a lesser degree the English) struggling with injuries an excellent Irish squad and the best Scots squad for many a year...

I'm going for 3 away wins this weekend with the Irish to beat France comfortably, Scotland to squeak past Wales and England to start poorly and romp away in the second half against Italy

Ireland to pip England overall

Agree about Scotland and England but I suspect Ireland will beat France. I’m not in the slightest bit confident about our chances against Wales though. We’ve got a massive injury list ourselves and nowhere near the depth of other countries. Three entire front rows are either injured or banned for this first match. We just need to avoid scrums. 🙄. Italy will probably start strongly but they pretty much always run out of steam and England will run in a few tries against them. I hope so because my Fantasy 6N team is loaded with English players this week.

amazing by Ireland/Sexton to snatch the win yesterday.  Heartbreaking from a French perspective

Scotland

Time to let Georgia or Romania or Spain have a go I reckon. Offer nothing to the 6 nations, or indeed the British Lions, other than a nice away trip to watch your own side win. May as well make it a trip to Barcelona then

well, 2 results correct and badly let down by the Jocks...didn't see the game or the highlights, so can't really comment on the performance...

I think a bit more humility might be in order, they only have a population of about 5.5 million so they're bound to be a bit shit.

Nope. When it comes to Sport, I loathe the scots! (apart fom andy murray when we need him to be british)

Still not forgiven them for 1990 in the 5 nations
